I've discovered that I have a knack for learning new things and documentaries are so interesting to me for that very reason! What are some of your favorite documentaries across the board that were well directed/produced and informative? I'd love to know...

A few of my faves:

1. Scatter my ashes at Bergdorfs
2. Hidden Colors Series
3. Anything about Pablo Escobar..(no I DON'T condone violence, but his life and what surrounded it is so interesting.) Lol.

have this strange morbid fascination about watching documentaries about hitler and the nazis. watched some great ones about children in the third reich with people who had grown up in that time reminiscing, leaders of the party and their private lives, uncovering the myths behind the ideology and the rubbish they believed, his abuse of drugs and the best one was a drama with actors all about his relationship with eva including lots of candid footage she took which was fascinating. watch holocaust docs of course

Thats interesting. In high school I used to find war documentaries and narrative films interesting. It was fascinating to see even the most gruesome images of war and to think about how this was the chosen methods of supposedly "solving problems" among nations. Its a sick ideology and its crazy to think that people really are fighting wars for people. So many people losing their lives and in many cases the issues are not necessarily resolved.

Dirty Wars, (2013) - About "behind the scenes" wars the American gov. wages around the world. SO great, touching, angering, exciting. I've watched it three times.

Unzipped, (1995) - Isaac Mizrahi's f/w 1994 collection and how he created it, basically. Lots of '90s nostalgia, makes you want to be his friend, and the clothes are adorable.

Particle Fever, (2013) - About the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland and the search for the "God Particle" (Higgs Boson) as well as an attempt to further understand the nature of the universe (supersymmetry vs. multiverse theory). It's easy to understand and very exciting. Makes you appreciate reality.

Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, (2008) - The life of alcoholic, gun-freak, former Aspen mayor, inventor of a type of subjective, literary journalism, Hunter S. Thompson. He's just a fascinating person and an important historical figure to know. His character and writings inspired movies like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, if you've ever seen it.
