I forgot the name of it but its a documentary that's hard to come by. It's about 3 students in some bum fug state that basically get accused and tried for murder, essentially because they are the goth kids of town and don't fit in. I believe one of them actually has a learning disability. I think Johnny Depp spoke out for them a while back.

I've seen "Restrepo" and "dealing dogs" both are depressing and sad

Gotta say Food Inc was pretty compelling. It actually pissed me off.

I think it was on a CBS news show. It was pretty good.

Ken Burns on the Civil War is the best ever.


Yea I can't tell you how many times I've watched it. Ashokan Farewell is a great theme song.

Didn't see anyone mention Brothers at War yet: http://brothersatwarmovie.com/

Talhotblonde and Dear Zachary are both great docs and fugged my head up for a day or two, especially Dear Zachary.

Dealing Dogs was another good one, and there's another one where the same guy goes undercover at a pig farm. The movie is called Death on a Factory Farm: http://www.hbo.com/d...farm/index.html.

Back when I was in college, we had to watch Roger and Me. It really affected me, until I learned what a bullshit artist Michael Moore is, and they interviewed a bunch of people from the movie who said they were misrepresented or quoted out of context.

I think you're talking about Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hill. It's about the West Memphis Three that have been in the news lately. They were all recently released from prison.

I get choked up every time I put in "Black Sky". If you are an aviation or space nut, or just enjoy stories of people going out and doing the impossible, it's a very well done show.

Don't forget about "Hoop Dreams."

"Bigger, Stronger, Faster" asked the questions about steroids that the mainstream sports media won't or can't. (Can't believe that father who's son "died from steroid" lets the anti-depressant drug manufactures off the hook).

Lot of people said they cried at "Dear Zachary?" I was more mad than sad.
