Renauds on Dateline tonight

Posted By on Sun, Aug 15, 2010 at 4:56 PM

Little Rock documentary filmmakers Brent and Craig Renaud, who've made a career out filming in gritty locales all over the world, turn their cameras to the Chicago gang problem tonight on Dateline (6 p.m., NBC).

The Dateline style, which in this case involves NBC's Lester Holt interviewing and narrating and intoning in that cliche news magazine way things like "it wasn't fiction, it was fact," is a departure for the Renauds, whose films have long been free from narration or commentary.

If that style doesn't drive you batty, tonight's episode is worth watching. I saw an early screener.

Also worth watching, as we've plugged in recent months, the brothers' work for the New York Times in Haiti, Juarez and elsewhere.
