Reality is usually stranger and more compelling than any fiction. That old adage is one reason I've been so enthused about Docs at the Box, the Music Box's first-ever festival dedicated exclusively to documentaries, which continues this week through October 10 with Plimpton!, Our Nixon, Shepard & Dark, The Informant, Évocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie and more. And if you're in the mood for more nonfiction filmmaking (a nine-hour Holocaust doc, anyone?), scan through Time Out's list of the 50 best documentaries for all-time greats your Netflix queue has never known.
