SPINNING TOP:  The culture brahmins at Sight and Sound, long famed for their decennial Best Film Ever survey, have compiled their first Best Documentaries Ever survey, which is topped by Dgiza Vertov's Man With A Movie Camera and Claude Lanzmann's Shoah. Errol Morris' The Thin Blue Line was the top American entry (5th place); Hoop Dreams placed 17th.

A separate directors' survey locks Titicut Follies into 6th place, and finds room for Ross McElwee's Sherman's March with the larger poll did not.

    I know it's important, but I'm not sure I'd place Thin Blue Line even in the top three Errol Morris'. (For me, Fog of War, Gates of Heaven and Fast Cheap And Out Of Control.)
