Dokumentari Michael Moore meledak di pawagam

`Fahrenheit 9/11' leads new era of documentaries as pop cinema

LOS ANGELES June 29 - Since the early days of cinema, documentaries have served as inquisitive, truth-seeking counterparts to make-believe drama.

Long viewed as dusty reminders of dreary educational films people watched in school, documentaries have put on a fresh face and caught audiences' attention.

Encouraged by enthusiastic crowds at film festivals that showcase documentaries, American distributors are snapping up non-fiction films and theatres are more inclined to book them. Primed by the surge in reality television, moviegoers are hungrier for stories of real people.
