You should be able to find recomendations for other years as well although I haven't tried.
I love Cinema Verite. It literally revolutionized filmmaking and redefined it's bonderies. It is probably the single most influencal development in the motion picture arts sence the introduction of sound and has been adopted to one extent or another by every director sense it's inception. It is a subject well worth studying by any serious film student or working professional. It's impact cannot be overstated. There are countless prominate directors who have publically stated the freedom they have been giving once they became comfortable with the use of hand held cameras. Cinema Verite took filmmaking out of the studio and put it into the street and it hqas never looked back. Check out the Doc, you will love it.
