Um...maybe. Actually, I have a real hankering to do a definitive "best of"
documentary book (while there are tons of movie lists, good doc lists are a
little harder to come by). Now, if I can just remember where I left that
precious little commodity called "time" :) Incidentally--since this is
tangentially related--we're in the process of converting our entire back
database of over 10,000 reviews to put up on "Video Librarian Online"
(launch date: hopefully, ALA annual late June). If we do, one could
conceivably do a search by number of stars (i.e., bring up all 4 star
reviews). Of course, one would also have to be a subscriber since it will be
firewalled away from the other free stuff :)
