Zeitgeist, along with Zeitgeist: Addendum were excellent. A lot of naysayers and doubters love to hate on it, but that's to be expected. That being said, I'd just like to point out that you can like Zeitgeist and still not think that it gives you all the answers to all the problems in the world. You can even like it and still be a Christian. Among other things, it's a much-needed backlash at the American global propaganda machine. Wow, that sounded a bit militant, didn't it?

Regarding comparative religion and mythology, I prefer Joseph Campbell's The Power of Myth. It was broadcast on TV in 6 parts 20 years ago, but there is also a DVD.

Grizzly Man and Encounters at the End of the World are two of my favourite documentaries.

Grizzly man was fascinating. I thought the guy living out in the wild seemed more nuts than anything else really. His supposed understanding of bears and their lives and psychology was more a fantasy than anything real I think ..

But then he did get eaten as well, so there you go.

great doc...but it is hard to watch just for that fact. the man was obviously so absorbed in the world of the bears and truly thought he had some sort of connection with them. then he got eaten. it bothers me to think about what was going through his head at that time.

Yeah, Treadwell was a complete lunatic. Then again, he's not the only madman out there trying to befriend dangerous wild animals. There's actually a docu series on national geographic with some douche trying to befriend lions. Let's hope that one won't have the same tragic ending.

The scene where Herzog listens to his final moments was one of the most moving pieces of cinema I've seen. Very very disturbing.

This was one of those rare moments when documentaries are so much more powerful than any fiction film out there. His decision to keep the recording private only adds to the power of the scene.
