POV (Point Of View) is a series presenting hard hitting looks at slices of life often very different than those of the workaday folks who comprise its audience. These eye-opening, sometimes shocking, and always thought-provoking documentaries originally aired on PBS.

The DVD presentation is good: nice packaging and lots of additional material on the disks. Two of the 15 documentaries are presented, sadly, without extras ("Tongues Untied," "American Tongues"), while some have only text bios ("Best Boy," Maya Lin:"). Many are brilliant - consisting of outtakes, film-makers' notes, and even other short films on related subjects. The short subjects attached to "Well-Founded Fear" and "Dark Circle" are particularly strong.

In this collection, you'll find (my individual star ratings for each):


Best Boy - What happens to a mentally-challenged man when his parents are too old to look after him? 4 out of 5

Dark Circle - brilliant (sometimes furious) look at nuclear power. 4 out of 5

Silverlake Life: The View from Here - A video diary of the last few months of a man's life at the peak of AIDS - simply heartbreaking - 5 out of 5 - would give it 6 if I could!

Leona's Sister Gerri - a look at the life behind the subject of an iconic photograph of a woman who died from a back-alley abortion. 4.5 out of 5

Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision - the story of the Vietnam Vets Memorial. 4 out of 5

Licensed to Kill - terrifying view of violence against GLBT people. 5 out of 5

Regret To Inform - American and Vietnamese war widows... very affecting! 5 out of 5

Passin' It On - from Black Power to prison - the story of Richard Moore (Dhoruba Bin Wahad) and the Black Panthers. 3.
