How The West Was Won (1962, dir. Henry Hathaway, John Ford & George Marshall)

The story of US westward expansion, told through one family over four generations. Epic Western (shot in Cinerama) of the old school, a triumph of US exceptionalism. Dated values-wise, but fascinating and fun in equal measure.

Comedian (2002, dir. Christian Charles)

A documentary chronicling Jerry Seinfeld’s return to stand-up, and the life of an up-and-coming┬ácomic, Orly Adams. Decent doc that’s strong on the challenges of stand-up, the self-doubt and uncertainties that come with playing comedy clubs.
