Documentaries are taking over my life. Lately, everything I wanna watch is either true  or the next best thing . So it was only a matter of time before I'd cross paths with Docurama , a DVD label that handles documentaries exclusively. Good ones, too, including The Staircase , about a high-profile murder trial in my home state of North Carolina. My big plans for the near future are to sit down and watch The Staircase in its entirety (all six hours of it -- seriously, y'all, this is the shit that curls my toes). I caught a few grisly, gripping segments during its Sundance Channel airings. Good times.
Docurama's most inspired venture is its Docurama Film Festival  -- the idea is, they "program" a film fest in the form of a DVD collection available for purchase. Then you and your housemates and the family dog can hole up and watch 'em at your leisure. The fest's second go-round is out now, and the line-up includes some real keepers.
