    Very well made by Spike Lee - more than a whiff of intense politics in it - but a very very interesting and emotional watch.

    depends what you like:

    Here are a few I thought were good:

    The Cove
    The Real Dirt on Farmer John
    The Fog of War
    A Man named Pearl

    Exit Through the Gift 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 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

    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".
