Best one I've ever seen is called "Paradise Lost" about 3 kids accused and convicted of murder on next to no evidence. I thought it was terrific
They credited us with the birth of that sort of heavy metal thing. Well, if that's the case, there should be an immediate abortion.

Watch Zeitgeist. Its a conspiracy documentary about religion, 9/11, federal banks ect.

Google the name and you'll find it

WHEN THE LEVEES BROKE: A REQUIEM IN FOUR ACTS - a documentary about the effects of katrina had on the music community in new orleans

well you just missed a pretty good one on bbc 2, by james may, he was lookin at the ways renewable energy is bein developed these days. there was a solar powered car, a hydrogen powered motorbike etc.
theres plans to build a 20,000 mile high solar power station in space (obviously)
and theres guys in arizona(i think) making petrol form water, they just need a more efficient tool than the one they have already, and theyll be in business.
and there was some part of that bit with the dudes in arizona, where they focused the suns light onto a cold piece of steel, and melted a hole in it in like 2 seconds, it literally turned liquid in front of ure eyes, it was amazing!

Wow, lots of conspiracy theorists on here huh? I would never be able to keep up with those, they take too much energy :P I'd rather just be happy seeing things for what they are (NO OFFENSE INTENDED)

You may as well watch the new Zeitgeist since it's going to be all the rage for a while.

There's a new one?...I saw the "first one" and thought it was pretty cool but then I did some research and realized it was BS lol...it has some parts that are true, but others that thanks to google you can easily find out it's pure BS

For the people who are into conspiracy theories, check out the documentaries by Alex Jones, they still have some wrong facts but they're better than Zeitgeist imo

I do believe alex jones is a moron though, I've seen alot of his stuff, none of it is backed by much evidence that hasn't been twisted alot. I mean he thinks global warming is fake, thinks rich people are going to have like 60% of people killed and themselves turned into robots to live forever.

Zeitgeist is also garbage.

jesus camp.


There's a good non nut job conspiracy dumbass documentary, pretty interesting, very little bias as the people making it don't say anything (I think) and just show footage from the camps basicly.

Super High Me


good call.

Religulous is pretty awesome. Gunner's Palace is amazing, it follows troops around iraq, great way to show how stupid the war over there is. Winged Migration kicks ass. I could go on for days...Docs are 10x better than anything coming out of Hollywood these days

You guys fail.

Michael Palin - Around the World in 80 days

Here's a snippet. It was made in 1988 but it's the best documentary series I have ever seen:

http://hk.youtube.com/watch?v=Vl7oK4y5How

http://hk.youtube.com/watch?v=2FscBlgzKVg

His narration is really good. There are so many twists and turns that you don't expect such as delays etc.

The rules:
- Travel the world in 80 days with no aircraft. That's the challenge. You get to see him on board ships and small dowels for several days and you actually feel like you're on the boats. Buy the whole series on DVD.

Watch "The Business Behind Getting High."

It's free on Youtube.

Animal documentaries are good too, preferably cat animals hunting down gazelles or crocodiles lurking in the water waiting for their prey to come take a sip o' water.

Hands down best documentary i have seen is Gonzo: The life and work of Hunter s Thompson, if you are a fan of fear and loathing in las vegas or Where the buffalo roam you MUST see this movie, Hunter is pure genius, the movie is narrated in parts by Johnny Depp too and features quite a few recognizable faces , such as Keith Richards, President Jimmy Carter and other former candidates, plus awesome quotes and clips of Hunter himself. Absolute genius !!!!

Also + 1 to the second Zeitgeist , Addendum, the first one was a lot of crazy stuff some of which made no sense but i found the second one to be a very accurate precursor to the economic situation we are currently in. Its still a bit out there but full of interesting stuff that makes you at least question the system a bit more... worth the watch but take it with a grain of salt

Guys, documentaries are supposed to objective and have facts in them so you might not want to suggest zeitgeist...

Watch super-size me. It's a guy who gets sick of hamburgers.
