So, anyone got it? Documentary love I mean.

At the beginning of this year I got real huge into documentaries, and even just completed a 30 minute piece about my band playing a small gig. It was fun to make and it just made me appreciate docs even more.

So, does the pit love documentaries? What are some of your favorites?

Any of the ones about Wesley Willis (there are two or three, I can't remember names right now) are pretty great, I loved loudQUIETloud (Pixies) and If All Goes Wrong (Smashing Pumpkins). Planet Earth and Life were amazing too, but those are pretty obvious answers.

Man on Wire was really good!

I don't watch many documentaries. Closest I get is Bear Grylls.

EDIT: (To the post below)

I bought It Might Get Loud and to be honest, I was kinda disappointed. I was hoping for more jamming and hearing them play. It was interesting, but not as good as I thought it would be. And it was so painfully and obviously staged

And at times, Jimmy Page would be playing something and I'd be in awe, then the Edge would play something and it'd be like "yeah, that sound quite good actually". Then he says "If I turn all the effects off, this is what it sounds like" *strums chords*

And sometimes he interupts Page and I just think in my head "EDGE, SHUT THE HELL UP, JIMMY PAGE IS TALKING! YOU ARE NOT WORTHY!"

But Jack White's part is cool. I like him.

I think everyone should check out "Dear Zachary". One of the most 'soul-penetrating' docs I've seen. At points I was on the verge of tears, and at others I was raging. It's incredibly good.

That was so bitchin. Anything where guitar/rock is the main influence, as well as sports. ESPN had their 30 for 30 series last fall and all of those were excellent. Netflix has about 300 docs too, gonna check those out soon.

I have no patience whatsoever. For me, documentaries right now are a waste of time. Instead, I'm watching House MD none stop

The Human Ape -
It's a great documentary that tries to find the major differences in intelligence from human and apes.

Journey to the Edge of Universe -
This is basically about the size of the universe and finding habitable planets. This documentary blew my mind when I tried to comprehend the size of it all.

The entire movie:

I'm not that into them, but I did read a lot of the academic journal Studies in Documentary Film for my work. It was quite interesting, so I do appreciate it as a discipline.

YEESS.


I Am Trying To Break Your Heart is an excellent documentary about Wilco during the Yankee Hotel Foxtrot sessions and their partial dissolution. I love the end sequence.


I'm spending all my time watchingt Twin Peaks, don't have time to watch any newer documentaries...

The Union.


edit: They mostly talk about Canada i think so here's a link for those of you who might judge a doc by its title.

Cannibal Holocaust.

Also, "A Year and a Half in the Life of Metallica" was pretty good, as well as "All Excess," about Avenged Sevenfold.
