'At Berkeley' Review

I wasn't alone at the Toronto Film Festival in being incredibly excited to see At Berkeley, the latest documentary from Frederick Wiseman. There, of course, was one problem: It's four hours long, which is pretty hard to schedule when you're stacked with other screenings during the day. Because I couldn't resist, though, I actually watched the first 30 minutes of At Berkeley before I had to go to an assigned screening. I loved what I saw. Now, I've seen the whole thing; it's quite, quite good. If you're going to the New York Film Festival, do try to check it out on Saturday if you can. My review is up at Screen International.
