By now, playing the nice guy with a dark side must be old hat to Michael Shannon, to the point of typecasting. Think of Take Shelter. Think of HBO's Boardwalk Empire. That's how you'll think of The Iceman.

Stories We Tell

Family matters.


Documentary

Rod Lott
Stories We Tell is not only one of the year's best documentaries, but one of the format's more unique exercises of our time. You may have seen a story of this type before — just not told in this imaginative a fashion. I was reminded of the rush I felt encountering Errol Morris' The Thin Blue Line or Michael Moore's Roger & Me in the late 1980s, and thinking, "Wow, a documentary can be like this, too?"
