Six Documentaries from Oscar’s Shortlist Available Online

Stories We Tell

The Academy has shortlisted 15 titles for the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature. Thanks to Indiewire for finding six of them that are currently available for streaming online – even more if you have an HBO account. Check out the full list here.

This is a great find; it’s usually very hard for the average person to get a chance to see these films. Most of them opened in very limited release and didn’t stay in theaters long when they did. The only one I’ve seen so far is Blackfish – I highly recommend it to everyone – but I’ve also heard some really excellent things about The Act of Killing and Stories We Tell. The latter was directed by the extremely talented Sarah Polley. The former seems to be in the lead for the eventual Oscar win.

The six available titles are:
“The Act of Killing” (iTunes)
“Blackfish” (Netflix)
“Cutie and the Boxer” (Netflix)
“Dirty Wars” (Netflix)
“20 Feet from Stardom” (iTunes)
“Stories We Tell” (Amazon Instant Video)

All of them have a pretty good chance of making the final nominations, but especially The Act of Killing and Stories We Tell.
