Very good documentaries?

Discussion in 'Movies' started by TheDirtyPoncho, Jan 19, 2011.

  1. Probably already a thread for this but my search is being fucky.
  2. I recomend checking out The Corporation, as well as The High Cost of Low Prices.
  3. ^^^^ those arent documentaries

    the union (if u havent seen it already)

    the cove (its about this CRAZY ass dolphin slaying town in Japan, really emotional)

    super high me
  4. Yellowstone > Highly HIGHly recommended. It's about the national park, i suggest everyone watchs this documentary. It's great beginning to end, theres 3 episodes, Winter, Summer and Fall. I could watch this sober and be amazed, It's on netflix too btw

    The botany of desire > It's about 4 different plants and how each one affects our daily lives. One of the plants discussed is MJ and had tons of info about it that I never knew about. I was stwned at the time and fell asleep near the end cause it was like 7 in the morning lol.

    Just my 2 cents.
  5. Bowling For Columbine
    Gonzo - The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter s Thompson
    The Union
    Metallica Some Kind of Monster
    American: The Bill Hicks Story
    National Geographic: Relentless Enemies (lions and buffalo)

    Fact #1. Reefer Madness is not a documentary
  7. My favoirte documentary movies are:

    Jackass 3-D
  8. Louis Theroux
  9. Why the fuck are you people talking about jackass 3D?? Some of these sound good. How bout Zeitgeist any one?

    Saw a lot of suggestions that wheren't documentaries, but I like to watch "The True Story of Killing Pablo" for some reason, not sure why. And I also like "aftermath" and "MSBNC Lockup" and "NatGeos Lockdown" and "Wild Justice" and the "Border Patrol"(Can't remember if its NatGeo or Discovery Chan)
  15. Anything on PBS
