This shit is important. Fuck school and watch good documentaries instead! *semi j/k*

HyperNormalisation (2016) by Adam Curtis is more then decent though it might make you feel ill.

Cowspiracy (2014) is good and all but maybe the way to show the total numbers are fawlty/misleading? Either way point taken :)  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3302820/?ref_=nv_sr_1

So, any recommendations from you? Is there anything good and valid be it comedy, serious or whatever?


Speaking of Ancient Aliens (please, this is candy rotting your brain), I did enjoy this Very much: 
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2432832/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1  (2012)

Personally when I want to check out a docu, which is way more often then me checking out a movie, I prefer these links to mention a few:
http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/
http://documentaryheaven.com/
https://documentarystorm.com/
Search the web; 123 documentary (should land you on some cool pirate page for movies, series and documentaries)

Planet Earth II is absolutely fantastic.

 

The History of Comedy is also a good mini-series

Here is one that I watched recently and I consider it to be very good.



 

 

RenegadeInc.com brings you FOUR HORSEMEN - an award winning independent feature documentary which lifts the lid on how the world really works.

As we will never return to 'business as usual' 23 international thinkers, government advisors and Wall Street money-men break their silence and explain how to establish a moral and just society.

FOUR HORSEMEN is free from mainstream media propaganda -- the film doesn't bash bankers, criticise politicians or get involved in conspiracy theories. It ignites the debate about how to usher a new economic paradigm into the world which would dramatically improve the quality of life for billions.

Subtitles available in English, French, Greek, Spanish and Portuguese.

"It's Inside Job with bells on, and a frequently compelling thesis thanks to Ashcroft's crack team of talking heads -- economists, whistleblowers and Noam Chomsky, all talking with candour and clarity." - Total Film

"Four Horsemen is a breathtakingly composed jeremiad against the folly of Neo-classical economics and the threats it represents to all we should hold dear."
- Harold Crooks, The Corporation (Co-Director) Surviving Progress (Co-Director/Co-Writer)

The Greatest Movie Never Made

This documentary tells the story of director Alejandro Jodorowsky's unfinished masterpiece: his attempt to produce a film adaptation of Frank Herbert's sprawling science-fiction novel 'Dune' in the mid-1970s -- a project which was never completed, in part because it collapsed under the weight of the director's incredibly ambitious vision for the movie. It was to have been a larger-than-life epic, as grand as Stanley Kubrick's '2001.'

All that survives of Jodorowsky's 'Dune' are the script, storyboards, and concept artwork. Using these, combined with talking-heads interviews of those involved, the documentary tries to show us how the finished film would have looked.

What makes all this so captivating are the interviews with Jodorowsky himself, and his incredible passion as he recounts the tale of an unfinished project from 40 years ago. Entering into Jodorowsky's world is like falling into a visionary dream where anything and everything is possible. And as his vision progresses, it becomes more and more ambitious: Salvador Dalì, Mick Jagger, and Orson Welles agree to star. Dan O'Bannon and H.R. Giger will design the sets and costumes. Pink Floyd will provide the score. It's hard to imagine a more ambitious movie, considering the technical limitations of the time.

Yet, as the documentary shows, the ripples from this never-completed, ahead-of-its-time film spread out in many directions, inspiring different ideas that made their way into later films such as 'Star Wars' and 'Alien' -- and which continue to inspire filmmakers today.
