The Interrupters ★★★★☆

Last month saw the release of the longlist for the forthcoming Best Documentary Oscar at next year's Academy Awards. Controversy soon followed as it transpired that not only had Asif Kapadia's remarkable film Senna (2010) been excluded from the list, but so too had Steven James' critically acclaimed and fascinating 2011 documentary The Interrupters, an inspiring film which follows the turbulent activities of Chicago's 'violence interrupters' across the course of a year in the city's notorious Englewood borough.
