Titicut Follies is a 1967 documentary film by United States filmmaker Frederick Wiseman about the treatment of inmates / patients at Bridgewater State Hospital for the criminally insane, a Massachusetts Correctional Institution in Bridgewater, Massachusetts. The title is taken from a talent show put on by the hospital's inmates. In 1967 the film won awards in Germany and Italy. It was one of a number of films made by Wiseman that examined social institutions: hospital, police, school, etc., in the United States. Wiseman's cinema-verite masterpiece is very possibly the greatest documentary film of all time. Forget about what you've seen in Hollywood films, this is the raw, hellish reality of living in a cement cell, as indifferent and sadistic guards taunt and abuse the inmates. Watch in horror as a doctor forcefeeds a patient through a nose-tube, while carelessly dropping cigarette ash into the mix. Screaming, babbling maniacs galore… the lunatic is on the grass, indeed.

In the tradition of such acclaimed cinéma direct works as Jean Eustache's Le Cochon (1970) and Frederick Wiseman's Meat (1976) comes Nikolaus Geyrhalter's 92-minute documentary Our Daily Bread – an ironic, detached cinematic glimpse of how the food we eat on a daily basis is picked, killed, mechanically processed, and packaged for human consumption. Geyrhalter resists having an overtly political or muckraking agenda; instead, his sequence of images acts as an extended visual meditation, a plunge into the poetic mundanity of everyday existence. By singling out processes that we would otherwise take for granted or overlook, Geyrhalter calls our attention to the more absurd and surreal aspects of the food chain – with the graceful and rhythmic, yet thoroughly strange and haunting, processes of automatization in the foreground.
