Filmmaker Brett Morgen (Jane) joins Amy this week to discuss the 1997 documentary “Fast, Cheap & Out of Control.” They touch on how the film changed the landscape of cinema, the power trifecta of director Errol Morris, cinematographer Robert Richardson, and editor Hank Corwin, and where the film’s subjects are now. Plus, Brett explains his take on how the documentary excels at externalizing the interior landscape of its characters. Should “Fast, Cheap & Out of Control” enter The Canon?
