Hatari!
Dan Sallitt, a frequent contributor to this site and others, has written an excellent piece on Howard Hawks' 1962 film Hatari!
Here's a snippet:
What struck me most forcibly on this viewing is that, in place of the genre mechanisms that he formerly used as backdrop and jumping-off point, Hawks riffs off of a downright Bazinian conflation of fiction and documentary."
But to find out how they are conflated, you must read the rest of the article here!
And if this has piqued your curiosity, Sallitt has written even more on late Hawks over at the Moving Image Source, in an article titled Golden Years.
