I also recently watched 'Cocaine Cowboys' on the Netflix instant viewing and thought it was good. The point about how modern Miami was built by the drug trade is something that I always wondered about when I visit there.

'Fog of War' had a big impact on me. In parts of the film I wanted to slap the shit out of McNamara, and others I just felt sorry for the guy.

Watching this right now. Especially impressed with the Grateful Dead and Band sets. Unfortunately, someone left Robbie Robertson's mic on for some of the songs...

for my money, moore is more propogandist than filmmaker. the controversy stems from the confusion in some folks mind as to the difference between the two. in other words, i think he is not on a voyage of discovery while doing his films. his mind is made up before he ever turns on the camera. many a recent documentary suffers from this problem.

I thought When the Levees Broke was pretty moving. Ken Burns' Jazz series was great too.

Call me nieve, but until the verdict was read, I was 100% certain it wasn't going to go that way.


There is an HBO documentary on On Demand right now called Hard Times and Douglass High- fantastic look at how fucked the education system can be.

This series was excellent and a great intro to art history. I especially enjoyed the segment on JMW Turner.

I've heard nothing by great things about "Man on Wire." I hope to see it this weekend.
