Making 'The Shining' (TV 1980), great, not just for fans of the movie

Everyone Stares: The Police Inside Out (2006), amazing, even if you're not a fan of the group

Trouble the Water (2008)

I can watch any Ken Burns or espn 30 for 30 doc any day however I find Helvetica oddly interesting. Watched it on Netflix on a lark. Who knew a document about of a font could be so damn interesting?

It was interesting. Especially all the details about how to create a font. Its so every day, but how did it get there?

The Will: Family Secrets Revealed is a documentary series on Science ID channel. I just watched the episode centered on John Kennedy Toole, and it's very good. Confederacy of Dunces is a hilarious book, possibly the funniest book I've ever read and Toole's story is very sad and kind of heartbreaking.

Well done episode.

Well done episode.

I caught this on DVR last week and was impressed. It was more bio and reminiscence by old friends than it was the typical manufactured-drama on that network.

"Full Signal"

All about the impact of cell phone towers on humans.

The premise is there is a problem here, and its affecting human's ability to learn, remember, and a general functional impairment.

People are developing an electromagnetic hypersensitivity, rendering some people unable to even leave their homes.

It's a 2004 doc, but still watchable. The Connections series by James Burke was amazing for its time, and his take on things was fascinating.

You can stream it here:

Are you sure they're staying in because of electromagnetism? Maybe it's because they're afraid Bigfoot will get them.

I've caught a few excellent docs in the last couple of weeks, I'm sure these have all been recommended earlier in the thread:

Senna
Jiro Dreams of Sushi
Exit Through the Gift Shop - this was almost completely unexpected. I laughed my ass off when I realized the coup that Banksy had pulled off, by turning the tables on the filmmaker.

I thought Jiro was great.

Watched Rise & Shine: The Jay DeMerit Story last night.  I definitely recommend checking that one out.

I've been trying to get my wife to see it for ages, and she loved it. She is crazy about sushi, but I can't stand it (or most fish). We're making plans to go to Japan and I'll just have to fend for myself for an hour while she makes her pilgrimage. Maybe we'll get lucky and the world's greatest ramen joint is in the same train station smile.gif

Senna is phenomenal. I keep recommending it to non-racing fans because its just such a great story. The guy is incredible, isn't he? I dont know how much into F1 you are but I was watching when he had the crash at Imola in '94. Just a year earlier I was in Montreal specifically to see him live, he was so brilliant that I drove 10 hours for the experience. He was the Jordan/Messi/Gretzsky/Bolt of racing. Best driver ever.

Exit Thru the Gift Shop is top notch. Everyone who sees it loves it.
