    Jiro Dreams of Sushi. If you like Sushi in any way, or are a foodie at all, this is a very interesting watch.

    The inside Job. It's about how the US government took your money out of your pocket and gave it to the banks so they can by new Ferrari's. I wanted to burn the world to the ground after that.

    The Coporation. A great movie that shows you that thanks to great lawyers, companies have WAY more rights then you. It also show a lawsuit by fox (which fox won) that says by law that what they show on news is entertainment and does not have to be truthful in the slightest. Keep watching that cnn

    I saw "Girl Model". It's about the Russian -> Japan young teen model trade. They recruit these girls from Russia who are broke, send them to Japan with the promise of all these jobs and money, and they get taken advantage of and sometimes sent home thousands of dollars in debt.

    I am Fishead. A documentary about corporate psychopaths. Paul Babiak wrote a book about corporate psychopaths called Snakes in Suits, which I recommend also.

    I seen someone linked that Urban Roots trailer, pretty awesome.
    Here's a docu that Johnny Knoxville did last year or so. It pretty much hits the nail on the head. Talks about the negative views in Detroit, and the positive things that's actually going on. I'm not saying Detroit is the best place on earth, it certainly is far from that, but I feel like it gets a far worse wrap than it actually is here.

    I dont think this was posted, but a great documentary on how we fail miserably with the war on drugs.

    the thing about this that boggles my mind, is we stand to gain so much money by taxing and legalizing all drugs, whats stopping this? does the gov really stand to make more money by throwing tons of people into jail instead?

    not the smartest guy out there but something obviously outweighs the $$$$ we stand to gain by legalizing and taxing all drugs.
    (proof inside the doc that this kinda stuff actually lowers the drug problems in certain places, portugal and switzerland are 2)

    I just watched Stacy Peralta's newest documentary on the Bones Brigade. I liked it a lot and if you have any interest in skating at all or you followed them as a kid I recommend it.

    Here are some good ones:

    Alone in the Wilderness, the story of Richard Proenneke, a guy who decided to move into a log cabin in remote Alaska when he was 60 or so and lived there for a quarter of a century.



    The Century of the Self, a BBC Documentary on public relations and psychology. It was up on YouTube but has been taken down, highly recommended. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Century_of_the_Self

    The Red Letter Media documentary/review on The Phantom Menace:

    Exit through the Gift shop. Think the sound cuts out an hour into this, but you'd be better off downloading it anyway.

    Herb and Dorothy.

    Jiro was pretty boring. The concept was good, but way too mean scenes of him putting together sushi backed by classical music. We get it, making sushi is like conducting a symphony.

    I just started watching this and it's amazing. It's old (1973) but it's the best WWII documentary out there and it's like 26 hours long. Here's a clip of them talking about transferring it to Blu Ray.

    try google instead of derailing yet another thread to hear the sound of your own voice.


    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0282856/ was pretty interesting and had some decent lolz on top, it is a real Doc.

    It's not raw if you cook it first, then uncook it.

    The FDA requires almost all raw fish to be frozen first

    http://www.fda.gov/Food/FoodSafety/R.../ucm189211.htm

    Here is the pertinent part:

    Except for raw molluscan shellfish, certain species of large tuna, certain aquacultured fish, and fish eggs that have been removed from the skein and rinsed, if fish are intended for raw or undercooked consumption, they must be properly frozen before they are served. If this process is done off-premises, purchase specifications ensuring that proper freezing techniques are used to destroy parasites must be provided. Labeling or other information should accompany the product to advise as to whether the product was frozen properly. This is necessary because fish from natural bodies of water may carry parasitic worms that can infect and injure consumers who eat such raw fish dishes as sushi, ceviche, green (lightly marinated) herring, and cold-smoked salmon. The worms are often deeply imbedded inside fish muscle. Thorough freezing kills these worms if the fish are subjected to a low enough temperature for a long enough time.

    Not serial killer per say, but "into the abyss" was an amazing documentary about a kid on death row because he murdered 3 people over a car. Great backstory as well.

    Exit Through The Gift Shop is one of my favs of all time, seen someone post it earlier. Banksy made another docu basically about how people have behaved in public. It was a neat little watch. I know it's now on netflix

    Anyone who enjoyed Exit Through The Gift Shop should watch the Orson Welles doc F for Fake.

    Don't think this has been mentioned but Channel 4 showed a brilliant documentary all about what happens to you during & after a plane crash.

    A group of pilots & scientists took & old plane destined for the scrap heap, filled it full of computers, sensors & cameras & took it to the middle of the Mexico desert & for the first ever crashed it on purpose to gather data.

    Well worth a watch.

    started watching "afterlife" on netflix because it was recommended based on the crazy ratings my step dad gives terrible films (I use my parents login because I'm cheap). One of the worst docs I've ever seen, soooo full of shit, and I had to turn it off with about 40% remaining on the status bar, and I can normally tough it through any hunk of crap

    This is an interview with Jeffery Dahmer and his father which is pretty informative and creepy.



    This isn't a documentary per se but it's a collection of original photos, news footage and videos surrounding the Manson family murders. It's also really easy to find documentaries and interviews with the cannibal, Issei Sagawa. Due to legal loopholes he was released from jail and since then he's become something of a celebrity.

    This is a pretty comprehensive list of Serial Killer Documentaries. I find them really fascinating as well and this has been my go to site for a number of years.

    I watched 'Kumare' recently. It's about a guy who transforms himself into a "Guru" and tries to influence people. What the actual point of his film is I don't know, he doesn't seem to want to make fun of these people, at least not most of them, he genuinely seemed to care and worry about how they would feel after he revealed his true self. He does seem to have wanted to debunk the whole guru thing and show people that it's pretty outrageous. It reminded me a bit of how Houdini would debunk psychics and the like back in the day, basically just to show that these people are big fakers who take advantage of the vulnerable, while at the same time being concerned for those who are being brought in by there schemes.

    It's pretty entertaining, funny, and interesting. Here's the trailer:

    Just watched "The World According to Dick Cheney" on Showtime. Really interesting, I suggest checking it out if you have Showtime.

    Don't think I can say I enjoyed it, because frankly it's just... scarey when you consider the consequences, but yeah, very informative doc, and I especially appreciate that she went and actually interviewed a lot of the original researchers, journalists, and government employees whose information, research, and articles she uses. The section detailing the mutated Mexican corn, and the smear campaign against the Berkley professor was just... I don't know. We joke about this kinda stuff on this site, but, to have actual proof that giant corporations hire PR firms to come to sites like this and smear people and ruin their reputations, for doing nothing more than telling the truth, it's kinda surreal. The doc really reminds me of the thread not terribly long ago where everyone was saying "GMO is fine and there's no proof it's bad!" Anywho, don't want to get all political in here - thanks for linking the vid! As good or better than Food, Inc, even though they did focus on different subjects.

    By far one of the most important and devastating documentaries I have ever watched:

    Also, "Dear Zachary" is some powerful shit too.

    This one is all about the sperm whale. They actually cut him open and show off how the organs work properly. (It was obviously dead already).
    This is pretty goddamn interesting me, well worth the watch. I have learned at least 10 new things about sperm whales.

    Megacities is an older documentary, but i guess it is still worth watching, and if you liked it, the guy who made it has done a few more.

    Darwins Nightmare is another one you might have missed.

    Sorry i cant provide any links to the actual docus.

    Im watching this right now.

    i dont usually buy conspiracy theories. hell i dont even entertain the JFK ones anymore, but this one still rustles my jimmies because im from the area and when this happened they interviewed a fucking ton of eyewitnesses who all saw an object streaking toward the plane and blowing it the fuck up. in this doc they talk to the actual initial police and investigators and they were all told to fuck off by the FBI, even the NTSB and ATF was told to bugger off. as this program progresses im getting more and more rustled.

    Yeah, 3 days after this happened, a friend of mine's father, who had just retired as an E-9 in the Navy said that one of his buddies said it was definitely a missile launched from a small craft.

    awesome. didn't know that there was a new one. having already seen the other whale dissection, i thought this would be redundant -- it's not. very intriguing.

    try this series. first of a few parts:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dogwek_4-1c

    also another older bbc animal series:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFymQLtypEs
    there was another series that was done by the same ppl who did that (i think it was from the 80s or 90s but still holds up really well)

    also there human planet (another bbc doc,,, part 6 sucks and there was another weak epi among the series. awesome otherwise)

    lots of other good docs from bbc/natureofthings/tedvids

    There's a new documentary out there called "The Act of Killing".
    Director Ti West (the Innkeepers) was talking about it on Opie & Anthony yesterday.
    It's supposed to be very emotionally powerful.
    Rotten Tomatoes has it at 97%.

    It's a story about murder in Indonesia, where over 1 million Chinese people were killed for being Communists.
    They even had some of the real soldiers acting out what they would do to the Chinese people they were killing.

    Pretty emotional film imo. If you don't want to see a bunch of people jump off to their deaths, don't watch. (sorry you freaks, nothing graphic to see)

    Anyone see this yet? Looking forward to it on the assumption I won't get emotional watching it. I have loved Calvin and Hobbes since I was a little kid.

    Sorry if this has already been posted but I saw this the other day. I really wasn't interested in watching it as I thought it would be some corny shit but it was far from it. A bit of science mixed in with religion. It was a very inspiring movie. A unique take on things that no one seems to be able to explain...
