72 minutes — DV, Liza Vespi, Marc Vespi, Rob Stewart, Canada, 2012
Do you remember the 90s TV series “Sweating Bullets”? If not, that’s okay, because the entire country of Serbia does — and reveres its lead character, Nick Slaughter, as a folk hero. So when Rob Stewart, who played Slaughter, leaves his parents’ basement to visit the war-torn country, the result is predictably "the greatest documentary ever about Canadian TV and what it can do." (Denis McGrath)
