Nanette Burstein 's Sundance phenomena, American Teen , was one of the most enjoyable movies I watched last year. It inspired me as a filmmaker, and it took me back emotionally to that socially awkward time in life when zits were the equivalent of leprosy and crushes came and went like the passing of the seasons. Anyone interested in the art of documentary filmmaking can learn valuable lessons from this movie. American Teen follows five high school seniors as their lives evolve and intertwine. And you will forget at times that you're watching a documentary.
