Luckily, they are not all American, the 14 which are now left for later to be taken down to 5 in January… but the new Michael Moore is there, “Where to Invade Next” as well as Alex Gibney’s Scientology-film and the fascinating “Listen to Me Marlon” by English director Stevan Riley, and ”Amy” by Asif Kapadia, not to forget Danish company Final Cut for Real’s ”The Look of Silence” by Joshua Oppenheimer. Are these the five to be nominated? Anyway, here is a copy-paste of the list:
