What's Catching My Eye At HotDocs

A quick list of what's jumping on at me on the HotDocs schedule:

The Relationship Doctrine of Don Blanquito - a doc about a goofy Brazilian Enimen wannabe? Yes please!

Brooklyn Castle - Searching for Bobby Fischer meets Waiting For Superman? Or maybe not. But it still sounds right up my alley.

The Revisionaries - Texas school board creationism follies

Queen of Versailles - the Sundance hit sounds like a must-see

The Imposter - a real-life changeling story

The Betrayal - au autobiographical doc on a woman who flirted with neo-Naziism in her youth.

Detropia - a portrait of the dying city

Bones Brigade: An Autobiography - Stacy Peralta's sequel to Dogtown and Z-Boys

Buzkashi! - can't resist a doc about a Tajikistani sport I've never heard of

The Final Member - The description begins with "Iceland's famous Penis Museum..." Sold!

All Divided Selves - a doc on R.D. Laing

Outing - a teenager deals with the growing realization that he may have pedophilic impulses. If I'm going to be disturbed by a film, this seems the one to pick...

Booker's Place: A Mississippi Story - a filmmaker tells the story of his father, a civil rights activist murdered after his participation in a TV doc in 1965

Big Easy Express - Mumford & Sons, Old Crow Medicine Show, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros in a concert doc... sure, why not

Charles Bradley: Soul of America - doc about a 62-year-old soul singer suddenly with a shot at the big time

Shut Up and Play the Hits - the LCD Soundsystem doc

An Affair of the Heart - the Rick Springfield doc. No, really.

Beware of Mr. Baker - the Ginger Baker doc

We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists - an Anonymous doc. Sure, why not. How bad can it be?

Gambler - a doc about Nic Refn. Wheeee!
