News & Interviews for Documentary Now!: Season 3
Not only are the parodies incredibly smart but they also reveal the true breadth of form within the documentary label.
This episode, written by Meyers and Mulaney, fairly oozes with love of Broadway, love of Sondheim, and love of '70s weirdos with big sideburns. All to its benefit, to say the least.
Directors Rhys Thomas and Alex Buono nail the panoply of visual and rhythmic styles so thoroughly that if you didn't know what they were up to, you might actually buy the series' longtime conceit.
The strangest and most vital of tributes to an art form: ferociously attuned to detail, deeply enamored with its subject, and yet able to be critical. And it's insightful.
Season three has its ups and downs, but even its lesser entries are still amusingly idiosyncratic explorations of their source material.
