The Green Rush
In The Realms of the Unreal
The Great Happiness Space

also check out act of god and searching for the wrong-eyed jesus. two of my favourite movies ever, they just happen to be documentaries/docu-dramas. it's hard for me to shut up about how good they are, haha

I'm going to add another documentary (since this topic has recently been bumped
) The Wild Wonderful Whites of West Virginia.



All I can say is the state I live in, in the United States, is waaaaaaay too close to where this family lives (West Virginia). If I could put 50 states between us, I would..



Johnny Knoxville = Producer.

Sicko
Bhutto
Cross - The Arthur Blessitt Story
Freedom Riders
Food Inc. - ups it is already on the list
I also liked Supersize me and March of the Penguins
Kind of documentary - Ancient Allies (curiosity here - not a belief).
Independent Lens documentaries are always eye opening

The "Human All Too Human" series on the three main Existentialist thinkers in Philosophy is a very good one. That and "Dangerous Knowledge". You can find them on google video.
