Our take

Prior to his success in Hollywood, Bennett Miller pioneered the digital revolution in documentary with the unforgettable The Cruise. Shooting on an affordable Mini DV handheld camera, Miller captured stripped-down yet wonderfully expressive images of one of cinema’s most electrifying subjects.
