See this masterpiece by Chris Marker and it will completely change what you ever thought a documentary can be. Don't even ask me what this is a documentary about. To say that it is about "memory" is too vague, it is so much more than that. Perhaps it is about how our culture allows us to process memories that people have in common. I don't really know. Just watch, it's incredibly eloquent without being too specific.

I've seen this movie 4 times now and each time there are huge sections I'd entirely forgotten and tiny segments that, in my memory, had seemed massive. It manipulates time. Your attention and investment comes and goes due to the density of information, making it an almost unrepeatable viewing experience and all the more remarkable for it.
