MY favorite is Born into Brothels. It's about the children of prostitutes in Calcutta. There is a scene in which a 5/6 year old girl who spends her days and nights bringing curry and liquor to her mothers customers. Anyway in this one clip, you see this girl struggling with two plastic bags late at night in some back alley slum. Sort of made want to get a shotgun and pull that kid out of there.

Deep Water affected me for a long time after watching. Shakespearean tragedy.

Anything by Werner Herzog. He's done quite a few documentaries.

I really like "I am Trying to Break your Heart," a documentary about Wilco. I've watched it a few times and always enjoy it.

I use my Netflix streaming subscription almost exclusively for documentaries.

One of my fav's so far has been Touching the Void.

Been wanting to see this for a while. Pretty sure 60 Minutes did a segment on fracking a few weeks ago.

I am watching Inside Job now. Sort of amazing to see it all presented and watch the dominoes fall. Sort of amazing to see that many people stepping over each other to sell their souls and knowingly fuck everything up just to get their piece.


Some classics not mentioned yet:

Touching the Void- ice climbing gone way wrong
The Last Days- holocaust survival tales, best of its kind
I Have Never Forgotten You- nazi hunter, amazing guy
Stevie- Hoop Dreams director, absorbing personal story
Children Underground- depressing but necessary viewing, like many docs
Paradise Lost- this and its second part are as engrossing as docs get- you MUST see both
The Future of Food- right up there with Food Inc
Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room- fuck them all
Harlan County USA- coal miners go on strike, fascinating old school doc
Lake of Fire- abortion doc, not for the squeamish
Dear Zachary- unique POV doc, harrowing story
A Lion in the House- follows kids with cancer, so sad yet interesting
Anvil: The Story of Anvil- old rockers still trying to make it

Love this thread! A few I haven't seen mentioned:

Paradise Lost (three teenagers convicted of murder in Arkansas)

When We Were Kings (the Rumble in the Jungle - worth it for the James Brown footage alone)

Standing in the Shadows of Motown (about the Funk Brothers who played on virtually every Motown record ever recorded)
