Subject picks up where most documentaries end. The film has come out, perhaps won a prize or two, but then it’s over. The director gets the acclaim and the audience’s interest in the subject of the film ends. But now, two directors have given voice to those made famous for an Andy Warhol instant. The experiences of people and families turned upside down in films like The Staircase, Hoop Dreams, The Wolfpack or Capturing the Friedmans are now center stage. Through fascinating and revealing interviews with the film’s protagonists, Subject examines the impact being in those films had on the players’ lives, as well as the ethics documentarians face when they make a non-fiction film.
