There is no better documentary filmmaker than Ken Burns. Period, end sentence.

 

If you've never seen it you simply must watch The Civil War, his epic 1992 treatise of that sad conflict. Its particularly relevant today because as US Civil War historian Shelby Foote so rightly says in that series "You can't understand America without understanding the Civil War.....".  When it was released it was called "the finest use of the (television) medium ever". I concur. It was/is a brilliant piece of work.....
