What are your favorite documentaries?
Mine is from the world renowned anthropologist Wade Davis on buddhism, definately takes me back to the essence of what I learned in Nepal.
My friends made me watch the history of the self, the history and rise of individualism, psychotherapy, marketing and capitalism.
What do you like you want to share with HE?
I really like Spencer Wells, Journey of Man. It was the last one I watched and I adored it.
I’ve been having a lot of people telling me to watch that Zeitgeist film…seems like a lot of people on here are suggesting it also. I may have to check it out.
“Off the Grid.” It delves into the lives of American’s forging a lifesyle in the Mesa desert in New Mexico. These people live absolutely independent from the electrical grid and from the system. Living in tiny shacks that accumulate rain water to living in abandon buses. And more intruigingly, the political spectrum of these people range from hard Right-Wing veterans to anarchist teens to hippies to liberal environmentist.
Martijn, good one! Just watched it, it’s very likely to occur like this, but now we know this maybe we are going to prevent it from happening…
Saw that docu was in coproduction with submarine channels. That reminded me of the following docu. It’s a 60 min docu devided in 10 episodes, after every episode you want to watch the next one immediately.
@Phil, yesterday I saw a part of: Heavy Metal in Baghdad. It’s about the only Iraqi heavy metal band during the current situation in Iraq. If you like metal, for sure you’ll like this docu.

“Collapse” is an incredibly strong documentary. If you have ever heard of Michael Ruppert, you gotta see this documentary.
One of the earlier documentaries I saw with Ruppert was back in roughly 2005 when he suggested that the economy was going to fall through.
This film talks about the oil crisis and how we might have to change as humans.
You should check out:
Harlan County U.S.A. – “A filmed account of a bitterly violent miner strike.”
Spellbound – “..eight teenagers on their quest to win the 1999 National Spelling Bee.”
Hoop Dreams – “A film following the lives of two African American boys who struggle to become college basketball players on the road to going professional.”
I generally dislike films of this nature. They are thoughtless, ill-suited to the medium, and far fetched at best. Zeitgeist, and other films in its class are entertaining conspiracy theories put together by amateurs, but hardly deserve to be called documentaries.
when I saw this topic I got really excited. I absolutely love knowledge and watching docs. Its kinda my thing lol since I dont watch tv. I literaly can mention sooooo many docs but ill keep the list short haha
