I'm writing an entry on documentary film in the last decade, for a film 
encyclopedia, with an emphasis on authorial, theatrically-oriented 
documentaries. (I'm noting the distinction between these and more 
formula-driven, televisual doc production.) Among the artists I've seen as 
exemplifying the range of expression are Herzog, Morris, Kopple, Guzman, 
and of course Moore. (I think the fact that these are all well-established 
has a lot to do with why they were so well-positioned in the theatrical 
market in the last decade.) I'm wondering if you have recommendations for 
great new reading to recommend and trends/other artists that are 
can't-miss in a short entry. Thanks so much!
