In the last decade, I can honestly say that there are no other people that have superceded to write the truth and put it on a video medium more than Simon and Burns.
Their past project, The Wire, speaks for itself.
But if you go back to Homicide, The Corner, and now with their new mini-series on HBO "Generation Kill", I am once again blown away. Their sincerity, honesty, passion, and ability to tell a story that is both hilarious but also pure drama is unmatched.
I hope they keep going for another decade.
When I think about the defining moments of my 20's art portoflio they are ultimately linked to that definition.
A video overview of the series is below - but if you haven't seen Generation Kill ... do yourself a favor and spend a day with the 7 part mini-series describing our insertion into the first days of the Iraq war by an elite Marine Recon unit.
You can also buy the book that the series is based on here. And get some background here.
