Can I get a recommendation for documentaries about the ''wild west'' or pioneers or western movies?

Never seen one nor am I aware of one, but I think a New Zealand flick called This Way of Life might be your cup of tea.

This probably needs its own thread, but it appears to be a breakthrough in the West Memphis 3 case, and our local news is reporting that 2 will be released tomorrow:

Wow they're still in prison? Maybe my memory is failing me but I thought it was pretty clear that one of the step-dads was the most likely culprit.

Thanks for recommending this. While the documentary is pretty slow, the story is pretty amazing. It inspired me to buy "The Long Way" by Bernard Moisettier, I'm reading it now.

While the main story was fascinating, I have to say that the French story was the real one that I would've wanted to see filmed. It was the ultimate plot twist.

Battered Bastards of Baseball, which just came out on Netflix last week, is pretty much a clinic in how to make a great documentary. Great interviews and a perfectly arced (edited) story. It had me in its hand from about minute 5 until the last of the end credits. Quality- and story-wise, it is on par with the great sports docs When We Were Kings and Hoop Dreams, albeit without the importance or the dramatic heft of those two films. What it lacks there, it makes up for in vibrancy. You feel like you're a part of this movie, part of something new and awesome. Just a great way to spend 90 minutes. Heads up: the reviews and trailers tend to spoil a few minor surprises.

What are the besst documentaries on youtube? I'm trying to find decent nature documentaries but jesus all this national geographic or history channel stuff is just retarded bullshit.

The Staircase, which is sort of like a documentary miniseries about a single case, is on Youtube. Really excellent, but not widely seen. 8.3 on imdb.

Guy asks for nature documentaries, and you all point him to crime dramas. The Art of Flight is a cool one if you just want to see some crazy scenery. They go down to Patagonia and hit up some really beautiful places in South America, New Zealand, Alaska, Canada, etc.

That is hilarious....I read it wrong. I thought he was looking for regular documentaries but could only find nature documentaries. Well my post still stands, The Staircase is good poo poo.
