  1. I love watching documentaries so post all your political ones here.

    Heres one about free derry, which was an autonomous region in Ireland during the late 60's/70s


    The Patriot Game is one of my favorite docs of all time, a good outline of the troubles in Ireland.

  2. oldie but a goodie..

    I think you would call this a documentary... Either way it's pretty awesome. It's about World War II. The whole thing is from the perspective of the big three (Stalin, Churchill, Roosevelt) and I just thought it was really well done. It's really interesting to watch. It watches kinda like a TV drama or something but has a lot of information in it. It's great! lol

  5. I do not believe you will find a better, more time-appropriate documentary than this one:

  9. No disrespect Mr. West but "The Obama Deseption" just like all of Alex Joneses films contains a lot of good info mixed in with some made up BS that is just not true. One example is in the film he is talking about all of Obamas appointees and he Names Henry Kissinger as a special envoy of some sort. Presidential appointees are public info yet I can't find a single thing saying Kissinger was appointed to anything by Obama. I have also found a couple 100% complete BS "news stories" posted on the Infowars.com website when I used to listen to and read all AJ's stuff. It makes it very hard for me to take anything he says seriously without researching it all for myself first. At that point I don't even bother watching his stuff anymore because I would just have to go and verify every statement he makes.

  10. Maybe this should be stickied if more docs keep getting added; it'd be a good resource. I wonder if there's a streaming "Inside Job" out there...

  11. most of the time I dont care what alex jones has to say, But you gotta admit he brings on some really good guests on his show. Webster tarpley, max keiser. Those guys have predicted so much thats come true.

    Here is video 1 of 10 of Stepping Razor: the Red X Tapes : documentary on Peter Tosh

    In the spirit of the OP's Derry Video, I highly recommend watching the docu-drama film, The Wind That Shakes The Barely. It's available on dvd.

    Plus any documentary/ film by Werner Herzog is worth owning. Lessons In Darkness about the aftermath of the Gulf War/ Iraq's invasion of Kuwait is especially powerful.

    Here's Part 1 of The Union : The Business Behind Getting High: [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hoK6NztH3eQ]The Union - The Business Behind Getting Highpart 1 - YouTube[/ame]

    I also recommend the docu-drama film, Cry Freedom about Steven Biko and Hunger about the 81 Irish POW Hungerstrikes.

    And while some may argue it's not political enough, Rick Simpson's Run From the Cure is a must see.

    It's a little bit old but it's still a great documentary regarding the media's role in the manufacturing of public opinion.
