It really is so nice to hear Keanu's name mentioned in relation to a film. I was beginning to think that would never happen again.

I think its great he is living out another dream & making it come tru! So many just stop but I believe that he has what it takes to become a great director & most likely he will win an award for it because I've seen his work & it seems like he puts his heart & soul in it & that goes along w everything in life that's what makes it become a great success , I wish him only the best!

I would like to see him win an award but I won't hold my breath. When it comes to documentaries...don't they usually like something that is more about social justice or the human experience?

Yup. No doubt Angelina Jolie will get something for hers. i.e., recognition/award. She's a game player and it pays dividends every time.
