HBO has this Documentary film festival going on where they feature one every Monday evening. It’s been quite entertaining. The one from last week was the best so far. It was called Resolved and it was about high school debating. When I was on the debate team it was a nice civil affair. It has since devolved into sheer insanity where the speakers literally speak up to 200 words per minute trying to cram as much as they can into their alloted time. What made this film interesting was that in addition to showing us debating in its current form, it also follows a couple of kids from a public school near LA that decide that their entire focus will be on bringing down the system as it currently is. It’s pretty cool stuff and also pretty amazing and mostly it all made me feel incredibly stupid. I reccommend you check it out.
