Movies: Remembering the Maysles Brothers

Legendary filmmaker Albert Maysles died last night at the age of 88. Maysles and his late brother, David, essentially created the verite style of documentary filmmaking: the fly-on-the-wall, non-narrated approach. Their films include the classics Grey Gardens and Gimme Shelter. Today, we kick off our weekly film segment with an appreciation of the Maysles before moving on to the latest box office releases.
