There's more killer suspense and shocking intimacy in this one-of-a-kind documentary than you'll find in a dozen thrillers. You'll laugh hard and cry too. Don't let anyone, especially critics, spoil this story of Nev Schulman, 24, a New York photographer who strikes up a Facebook relationship with an eight-year-old Michigan girl and her family, including a hottie stepsister. When Nev decides to visit, accompanied by his brother Ariel, Henry Joost and their DV cameras, the film unravels its secrets. You'll be talking about this one for weeks.

    “Long Walk Home”

    Bruce Springsteen | 2007

    When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
