| Some of Louis best work...
Louis is by far my favourite documentarian he seems to be a very knowledgeable and approachable guy, he also picks fantastic subject matter to delve into. He manages to ask the right questions, he seems almost somewhat innocent or naive at times. But over the years I figure it's more of a ruse that allows him to ask questions without seeming too judgemental and instead more inquisitive. Because he's definitely a well informed man and the more of his documentaries you see he will ask questions already having a good idea of the answer.

Weird weekends is arguably his best run of documentaries, it lives up to the name... they subjects are very varied and at times bizarre. But it makes for a great series. His later work is great too but becomes much more focused around sex work, drugs and prisons it takes a little of the variety that weird weekends brings away. In saying that I hope he continues to make documentaries and hopefully will go back to a wider range so we get more of his best content.
