    agree. Terrific. Caught an exhib at foam in amsterdam which spun off this exposure.

    Intend to re-watch the NY times doc (forget title...), to re-visit the late david carr's appearance

    This was pretty good.
    Documents several situations:

    -A white man shooting a killing an unarmed black teen in his home(not as simple as it seems.)
    -The election of sheriff in a small Southern town and the quest by one man to be the first African American elected.
    -A high school that finally allowed integrated proms..just a few years ago.

    Well worth a watch IMO.

    After the Chicago Cubs blow an opportunity to reach the World Series in 2003, Cubs fans blame the team's misfortune on fellow fan Steve Bartman, who interfered with a foul ball and prevented Moises Alou from making a catch.

    I saw this a while back and it was on ESPN this morning. Good doc.

    Good flick about "fresh" girls looking to break into the porn industry. No gratuitous sex involved. Just tells the story of the path that a few take to try to make a name for themselves.

    This was also very good. Btwn SHO/HBO and ESPN(30 for 30), they are doing some excellent sports programming.
    This basically lays out his career starting in HS and details when he was arrested(in HS) and facing serious time. No one would have even known about him(to the extent that he is a top 3 all time NBA "little man") if he was not pardoned. Good watch.

    I felt bad for them. They had a lot of stress and the wife seemed to have genuine concern for those around her, even if she was pretty daffy.

    Any of Louis Theroux's documentaries. Big fan of the topics and I think he is a really great interviewer. Absolutely love his style!

    Didn't like the one he did with the White separatists. He came off as such a tool.

    Or the one about child trannys. His lack of introspection at parents allowing 5 year olds to be the opposite sex was surreal. A documentary needs to check its premises at least once.

    "Mini-Doc" or advertisement to join the class action suit? With 250 offices in the US and based in Chicago, what does much of it have to do with Wall Street - I guess apart from the 4 contractors interviewed? They're attorney is in Boston too
