"Restrepo" was one of the docs I've seen in years.

Winnebago man was pretty good and worth a watch.

Inside Job is the only recent documentary I would consider really "must see."

More generally, anything by Adam Curtis (Pandora's Box in particular, but also The Century of the Self, The Power of Nightmares, and The Trap)

The stuff by Errol Morris is good, as is Herzog's work.

A personal favorite is The Mindscape of Alan Moore.

Exit Through the Gift Shop was good, but isn't really about Banksy per se.

An ex-SS man (footage from the 70s):

I saw a review on TV this morning for Bill Cunningham. He is the NYTimes photographer. The original street blogger and Satorialist.

Agreed. To their credit, it's some sort of skill to make a war documentary so forgettable.

Haven't watched this yet, but looks interesting.

His film began playing in San Francisco on the 8th, at the Embarcadero Center cinema.

God grew tired of us. Really eye opening. Somewhat feel good, funny, and sad all at the same time.

The First Saturday in May. Great documentary for anyone interested in horse racing.

Velentino was really interesting. A lot deeper than I expected, especially the exploration of the work/personal relationship between Valentino and his bf.
