Errol Morris changed the face of documentary filmmaking in the U.S., and his career began with two remarkable tales of American eccentricity: The first uses two Southern California pet cemeteries as the bases for a profound and funny rumination on love, loss, and industry; the second travels to a languorous southern backwater and meets a handful of fascinating folks; a determined turkey hunter, a curious minister, a laconic policeman, engaged in individualistic, sometimes absurd pursuits.
