Kumare: Filmmaker Vikram Gandhi puts an unexpected twist on this sobering documentary about spirituality and the power of suggestion when he poses as a prophet named Kumaré and develops a sizable following in the American Southwest.

A better look into the people seeking spirituality than Religulous in my opinion.

Yes, Kumare is a great documentary. Watch Louis Theroux - Indian Gurus when you're done!

Edit: The title pretty much says it all. Louis goes looking for his Guru, enlightenment and miracles in his usual Theroux-ey way. All in all not as satisfying to watch as Kumare, but still very interesting. And I found out that the guy who always used to invite me to vegan dinners and tried to get me to follow the ways of Hare Krishna made his wish come true and got to visit India. (Spotted him somewhere in the background) So there's that :yotj:

Watching "Tales of the Grim Sleeper", really good! I can't even explain it.
Jesus, the interviews with the survivors!

Just saw it
My heart breaks for all those girls on the streets. Some of them who got out of prostitution really seemed to do well for themselves, though, so that was nice. :unsmith:

And the face of Lonny Franklin Jr.'s defense attorney, Seymour Amster, will hunt me forever, goddamn that's a scary dude. It's like his face is two sizes to big for his head.
