    I would have said that cinema, as a medium, with it's need to montage,
    and the frame of its POV, and its temporal distance from the recorded
    event, is practically _limited_ to fiction. It was TV, with its real-time
    24/7 ability to distribute, that approaches non-fiction in its essence.

    But, that's media study and cinema crit stuff....
