The Lottery - Super Short Review

The Lottery - Variance Films

"Waiting for Superman" - lite. Documentary about students hoping for a spot in Harlem's premier charter school. Four families chronicled; emotional attachment (or any real attachment at all) only formed with one family - a deaf single mom and her daughter. Less about education in general, and more about New York schooling specifically. On Oscar Documentary shortlist; I bet it doesn't get a nod. Not sure it would deserve one. Kept me interested, but didn't have any lasting effect.

Grade: B-
