Here's my favourite documentaries, I've been uploading alot of them and some are already on Youtube:

Bus 174 (a Brazilian guy takes hostages on a bus and the situation is broadcasted live for the whole country to see. It uses this story to tell the bigger story of the situation of homeless kids in Brazil and how society deals with them. Probably one of the best movies I've ever seen.)

Jesus Camp(crazy evangelical Christians and the way they brainwash their kids, very disturbing)

Deliver us from Evil (about the Catholic Church's pedophile problem and a priest who molested and raped hundreds of children)

Taxi to the Dark Side(US torture in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo bay)

For the Bible Tells Me So(Homosexuality and Christianity)

Nanking(what Japanese soldiers did in Nanking, and the foreigners (including a Nazi) who saved hundreds of thousands of people there)

A Jihad for Love (gay Muslims)

The Tank Man (Tienanmen square and China)

Man on Wire(The story of how a guy illegally planned and performed a high-wire walk across the Twin Towers)

Lake of Fire(Abortion)

After Innocence(Men who are wrongfully convicted and then get released from prison after they find out they are innocent, but only after spending decades in prison)


What other good documentaries do you know?

Sicko by Michael Moore( it talk about the horror of American health care system. And he interviewed some people in foreign countries like France and Cuba about their countries' best health care) Saw this movie made me think twice about the trusting in health insurance
Bowling for Columbine by Michael Moore (After the shooting of Columbine, it viewed the danger of owning guns in America)

Spersize me (An almost comdic but still good approach to the obesity problem in American and Canada)
Sicko (About the poor quality of the American health care system and its better counterparts in France, England, etc. Great to watch, interesting and sometimes humerous but very eye opening)
The great global warming swindle (I'm not saying you have to believe it i don't know if I do but it's *very* convincing and its right up there with some of hte best documentaires, my science teacher showed it to me. Can be found on youtube. )

Supersize Me - I would recomend this to people that don't normally like documentrys as it is very accessable & entertaining throughout.

Rodger & Me - Anything by Michael Moore, I see some other's posted his big movies, you all gotta go back and see his first Rodger & Me if you haven't - it's unforgettable once you've seen it.

Planet B-Boy - I was suprised how much I enjoyed this, it's a peak into the world of international break dancing competition. It's amazing where these people from totaly different societies and lifestyles come together in a dance competition.

Trekkies - about star trek fans, this one is dated but still amazing. Don't watch it alone! You'll need another human being with you to remind you the world isn't as crazy as this movie.

King Of Kong - about middle aged guys that are competing to be # 1 at King Kong, again don't watch alone as it can be depressing

Jesus Camp was good, it's about penticostals (sp?) whom are extra-far out (the same sect as the church in Borat)
