So the Ken Burns documentary The War has been running this 
week. If 
you're like me, flipping through PBS these past few evenings 
has felt 
a bit like passing over the Seinfeld reruns since that 
Michael 
Richards thing. 

At about the time the concern over The War's homogeneity in 
interview 
subjects was bubbling into outrage, my dad published a piece 
on the 
Burns brothers for the New England Review. My father has 
been a 
documentary filmmaker for more than 40 years, but he's also 
a great 
writer. I think this piece might be the best critique out 
there of 
the patented Burns style of filmmaking, notwithstanding the 
personal 
testimony of Latino WWII veterans. 

He wrote the article pre-The War, ostensibly as a review of 
Ric 
Burns's Warhol, but the first half is a thoroughgoing 
critique of the 
entire Burns body of work and its impact on documentary 
filmmaking. 
He uses the "Ken Burns Effect" now featured in popular video 
editing 
software as an insightful point of entry. The second half is 
also a 
great read, taking the Warhol film apart in some detail. 

I recommend taking some time out of your Friday afternoon to 
read the 
piece.  You can find it online here:
