And it's so inspiring watching someone talk about the thing they are the most passionate about, the thing they believe they were destined to do. Amazing!


I just watched this too! Loved how they combined still photos, vintage film, new interviews, and re-enactments to make it into a heist film!

i love documentaries, i'll watch them about anything lol

russia's greatest spy, i watched this today, its not the best but a good way to pass an hour lol. food, inc was really good but mad and a bit scary at the same time. biggie and tupac i looooooved and i'm not even a fan of either, if that matters lol eeemmm the kennedy detail is really worth seeing, its really well done. i really liked catfish and then i heard that it was fake so i dunno what to make of it now but i saw another one called talhotblond which was along similarish lines.

theres also a really good one about the financial crisis and the recession and i cannot remember for the life of me what its called? sorry lol :(

I think that doc was "Inside Job" about the financial crisis. It won the Oscar in 2010.

I mostly watch travel documentaries or those half documentaries half reality shows... However, a while ago I stumbled upon Louis Theroux (from BBC) and in the past two days (yay no school :D) I'v seen almost ten of his documentaries. I really like his approach; how he asks exactly the questions everyone wants the answers to and how he doesn't judge people for their lifestyle - he just seems generaly curios about them. He mostly covers subcultures, such as religious cults, different institutions, lifestyles... The film I've just finnished watching is called Extreme love: Autism, I think it's really well done. If you like documentries you shoud definitely google him :)
