‘CITIZENFOUR’ wins big at Cinema Eye Honors documentary awards

01.07.15 3 years ago 5 Comments

In my opinion, there are better documentaries than “CITZENFOUR” in the Oscar race this year. Much better. But to judge by the circuit, they were nary a blip. Really unfortunate, I feel, but a steamroller is a steamroller. Laura Poitros' film dominated tonight's Cinema Eye Honors, which I honestly didn't expect from a group that has spread things a bit in the past and found interesting crevices in the documentary landscape.

Check out the nominees here, the full list of winners below and the rest of the circuit at, well, The Circuit.
