I strongly warn anyone suffering from depression to never watch this film. I am serious.
This put the hooks in me bad.
For anyone who knows someone suffering depression, you should watch this.
I need to go out for a walk to shake it off. Dammit I need my therapist now.

 

Followed the trailer and caught the last 15 minutes of this on youtube. Pretty sobering.

The Doctor

NBA TV

Dr J, great doc. You understand how this guy changed the game beyond the court. What a classy guy.

I just got through reading this thread. Some very good choices here.

About The Bridge; one of the people appearing in is a former coworker of mine! I had no idea about his roommate. It was a shock to see him.

Meanwhile another documentary just came out, which no one should see, because it has a very naïve viewpoint about foreign affairs. I know someone in that as well.

I will second, third, fourth, and fifth any and all recommendations for the works of Adam Curtis. Once you watch Century of the Self and The Trap, the way you look at society will never be the same. All watched over by machines of loving grace is also important to watch especially if you work in the technology field.

We Steal Secrets is also very good.

Just watched Valentino: the last emperor. Hilarious.

Just caught most of Vice series on HBO. Really good series with a couple of interesting topics. Also, most segments last for 15 mins, so for those who don't like to sit through 2 hours of documentary, its really good. And the hosts are really good too. Gets right into the action and takes part in the activities.

Dark Days is pretty good. It follows a guy who brings a camera down underneath abandoned subways in NYC and reveals the little towns of people who lived there. Some had built little houses and everything. The bad news was a lot were getting TB, which left untreated will kill you. (TB is susceptible to UV light, so living underground is not a good idea.)

cool sountrack too by DJ Shadow

Not bad. More Wikileaks and slightly less Assange would have been better.
