A few, off the top of my head:


This woman is amazing. There's been rumor that she's not deaf, but I think the real story is that she is not completely deaf. The documentary is absolutely inspiring. Not only does she create her own music through feeling vibrations, but she teaches others, like her to do the same.


This was a slow-pace film, but in the end, all worth it. If you aren't familiar with Andy Goldsworthy's art, definitely check it out. He creates all his pieces with nature and in its natural environment. Aside from the picture that's captured, all of his art is destroyed sooner or later. I might be due for a revisit of this one.


Vulgar and hilarious. This will not get old for me.


This one is my favorite of all that I've listed thus far. Absolutely wonderful. I wish I had the balls to do something similar.

You don't see a pattern forming, do you?

Touch the Sound and Rivers and Tides were amazing.

I love documentarys. Anything that portrays an extraordinary human I'm right into. There is actually a series called extraordinary humans which I sort of watched. I watch ones on animals hunting techniques every so often (eg cheetas).

Those are my favorite too. I was glued to this one animal doc that I watched on TV last night called White Falcon, White Wolf. It really was interesting to see how the lives of all these different animals unfolded. It really opened my eyes up to the fact that they aren't so different from us, I was blown away by the human-like qualities they possesed. The footage was insane. It had some really beautiful, beautiful moments in it, and overall I give it a 10/10.

i think zeitgeist is a great documentary...it discusses religion and how it still plays a role in american politics to this day and how people need to be more aware and question things a bit more. a very general documentary...but if it sparks your interest there is a sequel called zeitgeist: addendum and covers the federal reserve and how the system is designed to keep us all in debt as a form of monetary slavery. really great stuff.

Am I missing something? I thought Zeitgeist was a fantastic doc.\

Loved "Global Metal", Sam Dunn is a lucky, lucky guy.
Planet Earth was awesome too, especially in HD!

And I just started part one of When the Levees Broke. Spike Lee's film about the Hurricane Katrina disaster in New Orleans. It's heartbreaking.
