I'm very fond of music documentaries. On top of my head, I'd have to say Amazing Journey: The Story of The Who is my favourite.

I also really enjoy a lot of the Vanguard documentaries on Current TV.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

Do the Qatsi/Baraka/Microcosmos type things count as documentaries?

I thought Encounter at the end of the world was really good too, but for all the time greatness, probably Cosmos.

Agreed. He presents them in such a biased way it's ridiculous.

Earthlings.

Make's me sick to my stomach about the human race. Only because of the way they treat the animals before/while they are killing them. It's disgusting.
If a mortal stands before us
Strike him down with sleight of hand.
And if heaven rides against us
Then God himself must be damned.

I've seen all of his documentaries, and all of the Germans love 'em, because they all portray america in a bad way, and for some reason most europeans like to see america as a country full of fat stupid idiots, in a world where all europeans and asians are clean, intelligent and tolerant people.

believe me, they're not.

"Dom kallar oss mods" (They Call Us Misfits)
"Ett anständigt liv" (a decent life)
"Det sociala arvet" (the social legacy(!?))
AKA "mods trilogy"

These three documentaries are made by a swedish director called Stefan Jarl, and is without a doubt the best documentaries I have ever seen. They are about two best friends called Kenta and Stoffe and their lives. Coming from poverty and growing up with violent and alcoholic parents they become just these things themselves.
The first movie was shot in 1968 when they were about 17-18. The second one was shot 1979, and the third was shot 1993. The third one isn't as good as the first two, but still really good.

I haven't met anyone who has'nt liked these films.

Although I don't know if you can get these movies with english subtitles.. You should really look for them. It's worth it... Or you get the movies in another way and download subtitles...

Lol, I like the way you made a stereotype about europeans stereotyping america. Most people, at least in Britain, don't actually believe that stereotype they just use it as a joke.

On topic, Man on Wire is really good, you find yourself glued to the screen. And I haven't seen any of Michael Moore's documentaries but I read Stupid White Men and found it stupid and not funny (I remember reasoning like "How can there be a recession if my neighbour who works in a bank can afford to go on holiday?").

You guys really need to learn the difference between documentaries and mockumentaries.

Most of Louis Theroux's stuff is good too, some of his new **** is a bit serious though.

Planet Earth and The Blue Planet, just cus its amazing.
