Oscar documentary semifinalists announced

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced the 15 semifinalists for the Academy Award for best documentary — and, as usual, a few good ones are missing. Here’s the list (along with Seattle playdates where I know them):
“Client Nine: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer” (currently at the Varsity)
“Enemies of the People” (hasn’t played here, to my knowledge)**update at 1:30pm: This doc, about Cambodia’s Killing Fields and the Khmer Rouge, will play at Northwest Film Forum Jan. 21-27
“Exit Through the Gift Shop” (in Seattle theaters last spring)
“Gasland” (hasn’t played here)
“Genius Within: The Inner Life of Glenn Gould” (in theaters last month; no longer playing)
“Inside Job” (currently at the Meridian and Metro)
“The Lottery” (hasn’t played here)
“Precious Life” (hasn’t played here)
“Quest for Honor” (hasn’t played here)
“Restrepo” (in Seattle theaters last summer)
“This Way of Life” (hasn’t played here)
“The Tillman Story” (in theaters last Sept.)
“Waiting for ‘Superman'” (just ended its Seattle run last week)
“Waste Land” (currently at the Varsity)
“William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe” (in Seattle theaters last winter)
Of those I’ve seen, I’d pick “Waste Land” or “The Tillman Story.” But I’m sorry to not see “Boxing Gym,” “Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work,” and “Killing Kasztner” on that list. Anyone else have any favorite documentaries this year?
