Visual Style in "The Wire"

Here is a wonderful documentary from Erlend Lavik that analyses the visual style of "The Wire." As big a TV fan as I am, I've never seen the show, but everyone I know who has swears by it. Understanding visual elements in film and TV has always been a bit of a mystery to me. Lavik's essay is an excellent primer on the subject.
