Not Rated
  creepy, sad, heartbreaking, and somehow inspiring.
Style Wars (1983)
Not Rated
  Interesting look at a time and a place.
Super Size Me (2003)
  Made me think about what I eat, where it came from, and how it got there. If you like it, read Fast Food Nation and Omnivore's Dilema.
Jesus Camp (2006)
  Training Jesus's little soldiers - an oxymoron? I could've done with out the spooky music, but the documentary is compelling and alarming with or without it.
Bowling for Columbine (2002)
  This documentary is all over the place. Ostensibly about guns, so many connections spin out that it becomes more about fear and a strange lack of empathy in America.
The White Darkness/Voice of the Moon (2002/1990)
Not Rated
  Both of these documentaries are fascinating. The White Darkness starts as an examination of voodoo and ends up including the US invasion of Haiti. Voice of the Moon is a compelling travel video shot in Afghanistan just before the Taliban took over.

Not Rated
  The Sky Above, The Mud Below is a unique, morally troubling, expedition into unexplored New Guinea.
Darwin's Nightmare (2004)
Not Rated
  filmed at Lake Victoria in Tanzania, environmental and social catastrophe are tied together.
The Up Series: Seven Up & 7 Plus Seven (1964/1970)
Not Rated
  excellent series that follows a group of kids through adulthood and examines how they change or don't based on their experiences.
