I fully admit that I am a documentary watching nerd. I would say that I average five or six documentaries week. Sometimes I feel like I have seen every documentary ever made. What are some of your favorite?
some I have enjoyed lately:
The Business of Being Born
JFK: Inside the Target Car
Waiting on Superman

Freakonomics (sooo watchable and incredibly entertaining)
Food Inc. (really makes you think)
Supersize Me (I just love Morgan Spurlock and his films)
The Greatest Movie Ever Sold (Morgan Spurlock again)
Waiting For Superman (kind of heartbreaking)
Miss Representation (makes you think)
Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope (kind of nerdy but thoroughly entertaining)
I’ve heard good things about “Girl Model” and am currently trying to track this one down. Has anyone seen it?

The only things my SO and I usually watch together are PBS documentaries – those of you in the US can watch pretty much all of them on their website. They’ve got tons of shorter ones (like on Frontline) but also feature-length docs on their POV and Global Voices programs among others. I love PBS.

Ken Burns’s National Parks documentary. I am obsessed, and watch it like once a month (it’s on Netflix)

I too enjoy Ken Burns’ National Parks series.
I also enjoyed “It Might Get Loud.”
My brother and his wife saw Girl Model at a film festival last month and both said they really liked it.

The West – old school Ken Burns
I try to avoid political ones because they usually make me want to break things.

- Wedding: August 2013 - Brookfield Zoo
My favorites recently have been The Elephant in the Living Room (exotic pet owners in America), Make Believe (high school magician competition entrants), and Being Elmo.
I’ve also recently watched and enjoyed a lot of documentaries by Louis Theroux, who is a BBC presenter. He has done a series of documentaries mainly focusing on niche cultures in America, and a few where he stays with and follows around a number of British celebrities (or important figures like politicians). I love his work, but a lot of it is not available for purchase. You can find a number of them on youtube, though. Highly recommended!!

I love documentaries! Some of my faves right now:
The Business of Being Born
For the Bible Tells Me So
Under Our Skin
I also enjoyed No Impact Man but there were things about it that irritated me too much for me to say it’s a favorite.

WWII in HD was incredible series. I just love anything WWII related.
Walmart – The High Price of Low Cost
Pharoahs and Kings – David Rohl (I love any of the documentaries based on his work)
The War Room
I just watched Occupy Unmasked and Hating Breitbart, both of which were done by people I admire and respect. They are both really well done and thrilled I bought them early.
