The first films ever made were documentaries: depictions of everyday life as it simply existed, shot through a camera. When we watch movies today, we view them first as we would view these late-nineteenth-century relics – before we even approach the idea of them being narrative constructions, we see them first as depictions of life. As such, documentaries are a disruption of the narrative film, but they are also the precursor to it, and without them, we wouldn’t have Scorsese, Marvel movies, or Rob Schneider in The Hot Chick.
