'The Salt of the Earth' Review

Director Wim Wenders hit my Top 10 for 2011 with Pina, his startling 3D documentary dedicated to choreographer Pina Bausch. His new documentary, The Salt of the Earth, received an Oscar nomination, losing out to Citizenfour. This weekend, it opens in select cities, singing the praises of acclaimed photographer SebastiĆ£o Salgado. I think it's a quite fine primer on the man's work, even if the man remains a bit mysterious at its center. You can read my review at Paste.
