"The Bridge" was pretty intense man, pretty emotional doc.

 

Heres some of my favorites

 

"Restrepo" - Pretty much the best doc I have ever seen. Follows a squad in Korengal Valley (one of the most dangerous places in Afghanistan for U.S soldiers). Whole thing can be viewed here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87VRR74gKro

 

"Nightmares in Red, White and Blue: The Evolution of the American Horror Film" - Basically just shows the evolution of American horror films lol.

 

"This Film is Not Yet Rated" - Its about the MPAA's (Motion Picture Association of America) rating system. They interview some directors about why their films received an NC-17 rating, theres some really bizarre reasons. Pretty interesting Doc.

 

"Dark Days" - Follows people who live underground in tunnels, subways, etc. Very cool doc, some insane stuff in this one.

Murderball is a great documentary about quadriplegics who play a form of Rugby for disabled people. In particular it follows the U.S. team to their competition in the Paralympics.

 

Tyson is a great one too, all about Mike Tyson's upbringing and what took him into boxing. It's told entirely from his perspective, goes over his childhood, his early career, his prison term and then his decline all the way into retirement.

Any of these on Netflix by chance? Nightmares in Red, White and Blue sounds awesome.

Soaked in Bleach...free on Amazon Prime

 

Chances of Cobain having committed suicide is slim.

 

Wanted to watch it until I heard it was mostly tinfoil hat conspiracies but will check it out now if you're saying it's not wolf tickets. 

 

"Hot Girls Wanted" is another one I've watched either on Amazon or NetFlix that was a good watch. Kind of killed my Bonnar on watching p0r.n for a minute tbh but it's still worth a watch.

Step up and get slapped up - The Nick diaz story

 

The journey of a young and tough kid raised on the mean streets of Stockton. Doomed to join a gang but destined to be the best fighter on the planet. Watch as this extraordinary young man goes from getting gum put in his hair in school to ruling the underground fight clubs. Once a kid that fought for food to an icon that fights for weed. Going from thug to champion in a matter of a few years. He fights the hitters and submits the grapplers. Now living the pampered life, he brings his amazing tale of rags to *****es for the world to see. Don't be scared homie.

 

Currently on Netflix, I highly recommend it

The Two Escobars. One of the espn ones. Utterly fantastic. Deals with the drug baron Pablo and the footballer Andreas, who was executed because he scored an own goal at the world cup. Its worth it even if you hate football (soccer) solely due to Pablo stuff.

 

watched this last night, excellent ^

I'd have to watch it again, I'm sure there are parts where the investigator is "reading" into the data...but there are some incontrovertible  facts that do not add up.
