1. David Bianculli on the Ken Burns documentary The Central Park Five:

    The approach in Central Park 5 is different than in the usual Ken Burns film. There’s no narration — the story just unfolds, mostly chronologically. And there are no actors providing voices or portraying historical figures — just the people themselves, either in vintage footage or fresh interviews. It has more in common with an Errol Morris film, like The Thin Blue Line, than it does with The Civil War or Jazz — but it’s just as detailed, and thorough, in its approach as those major miniseries.
