    Great BBC series airing now called How It Works - Part 1 was on Metal, part 2 was plastics, and part 3 (yet to air) on ceramics.

    Sounds a mundane topic but its not, its brilliantly constructed and presented.

    PBS American Masters series on Johnny Carson was excellent.

    One of the best documentaries I have ever seen:

    Jiro Dreams of Sushi

    A must see.

    ^ I saw this last night. While it has its charms, and he is an interesting subject, it's poorly made with no real skill in telling the very thin story.

    Couldnt disagree more.

    I thought it was told in a very subtle and sensitive way. Actually one of the best docs I have ever seen.

    Some kind of Monster is great if you want to study sociopath behavior.

    Its brilliant, but you need to have a like for Japanese culture to appreciate it. Look thru the thread, there arent that many pages, great suggestions in it. Do what you can to help keep it going. A few that may or may not be already listed here: Senna Tabloid Page One: Inside the New York Times Collapse Cropsey Exit Through the Gift Shop Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work The September Issue Tyson Man on Wire
