Beyond good. Its a must see.
Tyson or man on a wire?
Billionaire was interesting.
If you like watching train wrecks, see Hated: GG Allen and the Murder Junkies
While a mockumentary, Zoo was incredibly well done if you can get past the subject matter
I'm sure someone already mentioned Grey Gardens
The Dancing Outlaw is pretty fascinating as well; Knoxville did a sort of remake in 2011
Man on Wire
WIll see, no worries
BBC doc on perfume, a hobby of mine, but IMO a very well crafted doc showing the industry's range.
3 parts I believe with 3-4 sections each.
start here -
This is one of my best doc about fashion
^^^ yep, one of the better ones I've seen recently. Really found it insightful to see into Tom's vision of life, fashion, etc
^^ The Tom Ford film is really good indeed!
Only problem was that on 1 or 2 occasions I busted up laughing because he sounded too much like Mugatu..
Dreams With Sharp Teeth is a good doc. about sci-fi/fantasy writer Harlan Ellison. I don't care at all for the genre and I've never read a word of his writing but he's an interesting and hilarious guy.
Another good literary doc. is Hubert Selby: It/ll Be Better Tomorrow
Unforgivable Blackness is a great documentary about Jack Johnson. (the great heavyweight fighter, not the lame surfer frat boy douchebag who writes the same song ten thousand times.)
Two part PBS Special on Richard Nixon. Despite his flaws and watergate, I find it hard not to admire his achievements as president.
Not a documentary as such but an interesting animation based upon a lecture by Sir Ken Robinson called Changing Education Paradigms.
^^^Thanks guys, I've just filled up my Netflix queue!
