    On a war note:

    The Fog of War
    The Ten Thousand Day War



    Like the liberal thought police that I am, I believe Night and Fog should be watched by every American.

    I've got to say that Grizzly Man is one of the best documentaries I've ever seen.

    I was about to say, "I'm surprised to hear such a sweeping, ignorant statement from you, CDFS" but then I saw it was you, edina.

    Exit Through the Gift Shop is my favorite, but might be more of a mockumentary.

    If you like that, check out Beautiful Losers. Docs are pretty much all I watch these days.

    Restrepo was good, Fat Head was ok. Liked Joan Rivers a Piece of Work.

    Sure there's more but I am drawing a blank.
