Movie Anybody have any documentary recommendations?

Discussion in 'useless chatter' started by Dory, Oct 5, 2010.

  1. I really like documentary films but unfortunately they don't get much press so it's usually only by chance that I come across one to watch. I don't really mind what kind of bias they have, or what the topic is so long as it's interesting.

    Ones I've seen recently/like include:

    Helvetica (a film about a font/font design)
    Exit Through The Gift Shop (graffiti/street art documentary)
    Religulous (Bill Mayer ranting about religion)
    Black Gold (doc about the coffee industry).

    Anybody have any that are fairly easily acessible that I should add to my collection?
     
  2. Oooh, looking at my local artsy/world cinema I've come across this if anybody is interested:

    South of the Border (15)
    There’s a revolution underway in South America, but most of the world doesn’t know it. Oliver Stone sets out on a road trip across five countries to explore the social and political movements as well as the mainstream media’s misperception of South America while interviewing seven of its elected presidents. In casual conversations with Presidents Hugo Chávez (Venezuela), Evo Morales (Bolivia), Lula da Silva (Brazil), Cristina Kirchner (Argentina), Fernando Lugo (Paraguay), Rafael Correa (Ecuador), and Raúl Castro (Cuba), Stone sheds new light upon the transformations in the region.
     
  3. Great.
     
  4. Food Inc.
    Outrage
    This Film Is Not Yet Rated
     
  5. The Inconvenient Truth :fly:
     
  6. Got Food Inc., I love stuff about food like that.

    Will check out the other two. Thanks. :)

    Also piss off with your Al Gore!
     
  7. What's Morally Wrong with Homosexuality
    The God Who Wasn't There
    Paragraph 175
     
  8. The other two are done by the same director/writer/producer so they have the same feel, but they are quite good.
     
  9. Aha! I was waiting for you to post some gay-interest doc. Brill, will get if possible. :)
     
  10. I like crime documentaries. Thank goodness for Netflix.
     
  11. My favourite ever crime documentaries are the Louie Theroux Law and Disorder specials on Philidelphia and Johannesburg. Check em out if you can. :)
     
  12. Check out Outrage then, which I posted before. It's pretty damn good.
     
  13. I've got a gay interest film called The Wackness (I believe) - you seen it?
     
  14. No I haven't yet
     
  15. Maybe you should.
     
  16. Maybe I will.

    If you really want some gay movies, check out TLAVideo
     
  17. The only gay movies I want recommending are X rated ones.

    That's what my PM box is for.
