I'll have to make a point to watch this. It looks interesting and seems to show some environmentalists finally "getting it". That would be cool to see.

Go Fast Go North was pretty good. Teams having to race 750 miles in boat under only sail or human power up to Ketchikan, Alaska.

Spinal Tap (actually it's a Rockumentary).

On a serious note, The Lost Boys of Sudan will bring a tear to the eye of even the most hardened. I watched it, and then encouraged my sons to watch it when they were teens. We started watching and they were making snide comments like "This is stupid" etc. Then, they got silent and kept watching. Before long, they were trying to hide their tears.

Chasing bubbles - sounds silly but stick with it; about a guy who sails around the world picking up hitch hikers as he goes; I watch it at least once a year

Black watch snipers - WW2 Canadian snipers

Surfwise - an interesting story of a guy who takes his family surfing and pretty much rejects the American Dream - might have to rent it as the youtube full length film is not the same as the real movie

I had to fly from NC to CA this morning for work. Before I left I downloaded "Five Came Back" from NetFlix. I have been wanting to watch it but have been putting it off. I watched all three parts today and am glad I did. What those guys did to document the war and then to document the crimes is an amazing story. It made me wonder when Hollywood started to hate America because the WWII generation were patriots.

I liked "Fog of War" by him too.
Sorry to quote myself but Thin Blue Line is also by Errol Morris. He really has a distinctive style and unfolds a story in the most interesting way.

"THE PIKETON FAMILY MURDERS" - In 2016 eight members of the same family murdered in separate locations on the same night in some backwater town in Ohio. It is On Demand on the Oxygen Network. Very interesting story - good documentary.

Twice now, I've almost hit play on this; you're on the hook now.

I mentioned this one on the sub thread....Blind Mans Bluff...a History Channel documentary about the spooks during the cold war dropping mikes off the Soviet sub pens...

My old boss at Diebold was featured and interviewed....Norman H Walker. The Navy booted him after 19 years for alcoholism. He managed to get back in as a reserve in the mid 80's and got his retirement.
