Two of the most trenchant and buzz-generating documentaries out of this year's Sundance Film Festival come to theaters in May. Last November when director Will Allen's name was omitted from the Competition announcement for Holy Hell, plenty of conjecture surrounded the film and its sensitive subject matter, which unveils the inner-workings of a spiritual community gone wrong while subtly exploring the psychological forces that led to its leader's abuse of trust and power. Weiner, the Grand Jury Prize winner for U.S. Documentary, similarly touches on exposé elements in an approach to the soap opera-esque transgressions of disgraced politician Anthony Weiner. What on one hand feels like a cleverly voyeuristic documentary, on the other suggests a man seemingly begging for his dirty laundry to be aired in public.
