Alex Karpovsky interview at ShortEnd Magazine

From the interview:

AK: "The word truth should not be used anywhere in the ballpark of film. Everybody knows that, but people still seem to use that within the field of documentary film. (The Hole Story) is partially a documentary, and (Woodpecker) is also, much more partially a documentary, and the movie I’m doing now TJ & Dave is a full-on documentary, but I would never call it a nonfiction work because I think there is this notion that if it’s called nonfiction it’s somehow true or real. And that’s crazy. As soon as you put music underneath a scene, you’re incredibly, aggressively manipulating any vestiges of truth."

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.
