I only recently discovered this (because it only came out a couple of days ago :p) so I will share it with you. It's set in my hometown and was a real eye opener, and follows several people who are dealing with various issues in their lives, mostly drugs.

Swansea Love Story

I second this, and EVERYTHING I've watched on VBS.TV so far.

I recently watched Toxic Imperial Valley

http://www.vbs.tv/watch/toxic/toxic-imperial-valley-1-of-2

A couple hours east of San Diego lies the Salton Sea. It shows how hosed up the environment is out there due to the New River coming up from Mexicali and dumping pollutants into the sea, squatters who scavenge from military test zones, and basically just how much the area sucks now.

So is my video out of sync or is the narration just poorly timed?

It's out of sync. Everytime you hear a scratch or a beep in the sound, it gets a little further behind. By the end of the movie it's about a full minute behind. It's still watchable with it though, Joaquin Phoenix is just talking about stuff you'll see in a minute.

Thank you to everyone in this thread who's recommended netflix. a month and there are a ton of documentaries, both streaming and on DVD. Just watched Dear Zachary finally.

Maybe there should be a blurb in the OP about netflix?

I love this thread.

Let me drop a little bombshell:

BaBoom - [url]http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/search/results/page/1/sort/dc.date+desc?q=&facet[0]=dc.type%3A%22Program+Video%22[/url]

edit: Why won't this URL encode? Radium

This is page one of all the Nova episodes - for those who might not know, Nova is a PBS (American public broadcasting) documentary series, and it is awesome.

I have 2 favorites I'll point out, sadly only 1 is viewable on this site, all though the second is available on Netflix.

Fractals - This one features interviews with Benoit Mandlebrot, and like I said in the PYF Fact that makes your brain explode thread, minute by minute features the most mind blowing facts of any doc I can remember seeing:
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/physics/hunting-hidden-dimension.html

Dogs Decoded - Not streamable online, but absolutely fascinating for anyone who likes dogs, has seen a dog, knows what a dog is, and/or finds evolution interesting:
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/nature/dogs-decoded.html


Also, if these videos are blocked outside of the US, please let me know.

Dogs Decoded is streaming on Netflix. Came up pretty recently though.
