All of Ken Burns' stuff, most of it is on Netflix. I highly recommend The Civil War.

That's a good one, I also really like his documentary about the national parks called The National Parks: America's Best Idea.

Yeah the most interesting part about that documentary is seeing all those war criminals talk freely about what they've done.

Growing up in the 90's I sort of vaguely recall the wars in Yugoslavia but I do remember the trials in The Hague so it was weird to see people like Karadzic, Mladic and Milosevic speak so freely.

I can't detect if you're being sarcastic, but just in case — a man in Texas is convicted and put on death row for killing a cop during a traffic stop. At every step the convicted man protests his innocence.

Errol Morris (the documentarian), while working as a private investigator, begins interviewing those involved in the case, and piece by piece is convinced that the wrong man has been convicted. He begins developing a movie in parallel with his investigation, and the stunning result is The Thin Blue Line.

I wasn't so thanks for explaining.

Yesterday I finished The Jinx and it's amazing. The existence of the train wreck that is All Good Things is completely justified solely by being the catalyst for establishing this series.

If you do intend to watch this documentary, don't Google Robert Durst, lest ye be spoiled the ending.

Yeah I enjoyed watching it but agree with your criticism. The actual dig stuff was okay because if nothing else it sort of confirmed the myth.

What Is Reality - BBC Documentary


It's a few years old, but if anyone wants to get beat up by quantum mechanics this one if for you. I hate this stuff because it messes up my reality, so I am looking to take a few hostages with me, hoping to feel better about it.

I couldn't watch more than a few mins of the white people doc...

Is it supposed to look like I'm experiencing hypoxia?

Are there any good documentaries on the Unabomber that you guys know of? He seems like a dude there would be a few documentaries on, but I'm not really seeing much out there.

I saw a CNN one a couple of weeks ago, it was okay. I watched it with half an eye.

Winter on Fire about the Euromaidan Revolution in Ukraine, is just absolutely thrilling. It's on Netflix.

It's good. One sided though.

Looking for really good food documentaries. About preparation, history, anything.

Music docs are rad, too.

The mind of a chef is really good imo.

I'm not sure he did it or not. I'm certainly not convinced that he did though, and I think he does deserve a new trial.

What's everyone's take on Making of a Murderer? I just started it and know it's getting a lot of hype.

The core message is that if the man has a bone to pick with you, and you're poor and uneducated, you stand pretty much zero chance of doing something about it. It's a very good documentary.

Just watched Trophy Kids on Netflix. I don't think it tells you anything you don't know, so only watch it if you want to feel really bad for some kids.
I guess watch it as a guide of how not to live vicariously through your children.

I was about to watch that yesterday but I decided I didn't feel like yelling at the TV.

I watched Reel Injun and it was pretty interesting. A native's look at the way the movie industry depicts and has depicted native Americans, and a bit of exploration of native american cinema.

The Templars are a really interesting case study. Once you take up arms and ingratiate yourself into your society, what, exactly, is stopping you from turning popular support into a protection racket?

A higher morality.


Oh wait....
