    Chick Flick

    Shut Up & Sing (Genius) It's a shame that one of 2006's best documentaries is being released without extras; it would have been nice, for instance, to hear feisty Natalie Maines talk with directors Barbara Kopple and Cecilia Peck about her reactio...

    Magnificence... - Rebecca Fisher offers an unresolved, yet unflinching look into her own family tragedy
