The Geatest that Never was (Marcus Dupree)
Then a lot of "films" on this country I found more than compelling

I've seen Catfish and I'm like 80% sure it was fake. It was still good but since the creators of that movie have now made Paranormal Activity 3, I doubt it was a legit documentary. Talhotblonde however was real. The tall hot blonde was from Oak Hill W.V. and I know a few people who knew her irl.
Just rewatched it and yeah, it's fake. It's still very good and worth a watch but there is no way they managed to have a camera at every major event and the fact that started so early in the whole ordeal...
Good but fake.
Watched Restrepo based on this thread. Thanks for the suggestion.

The other one was a doc about Russian kids who were supposedly raised by wolves, and he said some of the footage was very compelling. They couldn't grasp concepts of a drinking glass, or dishes, and after being studied and taught by psychologists, they could behave somewhat normally in social situations but would still do things like react to a strange noise in the same way a dog would.

I like documentaries that tell a story, not just talk about something. This series delivers.
And there are a bunch of other quality suggestions in this thread. I've watched at least 2 or 3 you guys suggested and haven't been disappointed yet.

After watching it, I got into the politics of the environment and our energy resources. The film was put together very well, and I think it won best documentary at the last Academy Awards.
