Frederick Wiseman has always been interested, above and beyond anything else, in institutions. The veteran documentarian has, in his nearly 50-year career, pointed his lens at all kinds of social microcosms, from ballet companies and strip clubs, to high schools and the state legislature. Now, hot on the heels of last year's masterpiece "At Berkeley," Wiseman is taking a look at the art world with his latest, "National Gallery."

While the documentary genre has grown increasingly popular over the past few years, with filmmakers imbuing their projects with the energy and feel of feature films, veteran Frederick Wiseman has maintained the approach he established all the way back in the 1960s.

No one takes their cabaret shows more seriously than the French -- taking off your clothes is pretty much an artform in the nation -- but documentaries about the subject seem to be few and far between.

Continuing his tireless work ethic, the filmmaker is back with "Crazy Horse" and the first French trailer for the film has arrived.
