Tell me about a good documentary

April 29, 2011 by  

I’m a documentary fan, and even with my other-worldly Internet research skills, I often come up dry when searching for a new documentary. Thus, I am creating this post where you, the reader, can tell me, the documentary watcher, what to watch.

I’ll give a list and some comments of some docs I’ve seen:

Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father: I’m still in tears from this one.

The Cove: I liked this epic save-the-dolphins tale so much I interviewed the director.

Exit Through the Gift Shop: A movie about graffiti artists that turns out much more thought-provoking than you’d imagine.

Hoop Dreams: I’ve seen this epic twice and it still gives me plenty to ponder.

That’s just a start. Mind you, I’ve seen quite a few. But, since i discover a new documentary I’d like to see nearly every day, I figured some guidance would help. Give me some suggestions.

    Deliver us from Evil
    Jesus Camp
    March of the penguins
    I liked the ones about the combover, the whistling and the spelling bee also.

    Thinner (An HBO documentary about women who are hospitalized for eating disorders)

    This is Spinal Tap (Rob Reiner’s flawless parody-rockumentary, and one of my favorite films of all time)

    More will occur to me as the day wears on. But these are two outliers that I needed to mention.

    Bon weekend,

    Ooooh! “Cocaine Cowboys.”

    That one was really, really good.

    I do rockumentaries on concerts throughout the east coast, mostly northeast, however I did over five hours of fan interviews at Bonnaroo 2011.

    Check it out and let me know what U think!
