I've done an essay on artist film and documentary, which you can link to here, for the online magazine APEngine, where it's been paired with a piece by Michael Avatar about his experiences working as an artists' coach with Steve Jackman on his film about the choreographer Jeremy James. I begin with a quote from Robert Creeley, end with one from Anais Nin and discuss films as disparate and excellent as Lucy Walker's Waste Land, my favourite of the films I wrote SIDF catalogue copy for, Clio Barnard's The Arbor, Mary Lance's Agnes Martin: With My Back To The World, and Ed Harris' Pollock. There's even a one-line dissection of the link between Andy Warhol and all of Sam Taylor-Wood. You can also find my bit excerpted at Untitled: Perspectives, here.
