I like very much a relatively little-known recent feature length
documentary, "The Limits of What We Know," by Amy Bodman. The film's
site is , and I have a brief
comment under "reviews." It's perhaps not "experimental" in the sense
usually meant here, but it is in the sense that it's not at all like
mainstream docs, but if anything opposed to them.

Travis Wilkerson's "An Injury to One" is really good, and original; I
have a capsule review at

Brakhage's three Pittsburgh films, "eyes," "Deus Ex," and "The Act of
Seeing with one's own eyes" are clearly experimental documentaries, as
is his later "The Governor," which is superb and fascinating and has
been under-recognized. See also Bruce Baillie's "Here I Am," "Yellow
Horse," and "Port Chicago Vigil."
