Can you recommend any good documentary films?
When The Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Parts
Very well made by Spike Lee - more than a whiff of intense politics in it - but a very very interesting and emotional watch.
This is an extremely interesting doc- Japan's War in Color, cheap too.
depends what you like:
Here are a few I thought were good:
The Real Dirt on Farmer John
The Fog of War
A Man named Pearl
Exit Through the Gift Shop..is amazing,
also...I agree with "the cove"
and: I Remember Me, Sick: The life and death of bob flanegan, the wild parrots of telegraph hill, the bridge, the times of harvey milk, jesus camp...lol I'm a weird liberal, so anything by michael moore is a bit manipulative but I love it, ...umm
and: independent lens: trudell...oh! and: born into brothels is astounding
and this sounds stupid but there's one called 'king of kong: a fistful of quarters" that's hilarious
man on wire is really good
but my absolute favorite documentary is called: Grizzly Man
Sex: The Annabel Chong Story
Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild, Untold Story of Ozploitation!
Definitely the Wild Parrots of Telegraph is up there! Just saw
"This Film Is Not Rated Yet", a doc for movie lovers on the film rating system. Its fun and chocking and I warmly recommend it. Especially that the movie was rated NC-17, seriously limiting its distribution.
I remember vaguely Grizzly Man but for some reasons it did not left a huge impression outside Herzog voice .
I forgot to mention on my previous list: Murderball.
Somebody mentioned Spike Lee. So from him also: "Four Little Girls".
Religulous(Bill Maher). Talks about religion and its various forms, in a somewhat funny way. (Comedy/doco)
Hmmmm dont know where your from but try Nazi Collabarators
go on bbc iplayer and watch the sectioned documentary from bbc4
