If Sideways made you curious about vino, this fierce, funny and challenging doc opens up a world worth debating. Jonathan Nossiter has a nose for what gets lost as the wine industry goes global, pushing speed over maturation and squeezing out the individual in favor of mass production. Since the crisis applies to film, music and other arts, Mondovino is a potent provocation that gets to the heart of Paul Giamatti's crack in Sideways about "no fucking Merlot."

"In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
