It was really well constructed, the delivery was quality in many regards, can't recommend it highly enough.
Just saw this, it's interesting. Definitely confirms my theory that people who approach life with an "us vs them" mentality are setting themselves up for a life of rage and bitterness.

Re: Documentaries

Indeed. And this documentary showed how much rage/bitterness there was on one side of the argument.

So many good ones. I like Fernando mania but I was growing up in LA during that time so a little bias.

Re: Documentaries

Icarus

Bryan Fogel, an amateur competetive cyclist decides to use all the PEDs he can to see how much it would affect his performance, and to see if he could get away with it in competition. He enlists the help of Grigory Rodchenkov, director of a Moscow laboratory called the Anti-Doping Centre, which was the lab used to test all the athletes at the Sochi olympics. Rodchenkov explains to Fogel the techniques he's used to help Russian athletes get away with doping for decades. While they're working together, Rodchenkov suddenly finds himself at the center of the biggest international doping scandal in sports history.

5/5, must see.

Cries from Syria

About the Syrian war from the perspective of civilians.

Pretty decent and in depth, disturbing in parts. It covers from the Arab spring to Russia's devastating involvement. Available on Netflix.

Re: Documentaries

Biggie: The Life Of Notorious B.I.G.

I'm not really into rap, and I'm sure I would've liked it more if I was. It was still mildly interesting.

Tour De Pharmacy

Not sure if mockumentaries are allowed in this thread, but this is one of the funniest things I've seen in a while. It's about the 1982 Tour De France and every rider is on tons of drugs and ****. Great cast including Andy Samberg, Mike Tyson, Jeff Goldbloom, Dolph Lundgren, Maya Rudolph, Lance Armstrong, Kevin Bacon.

Re: Documentaries

Tickled

This was discussed itt when it came out last year, but I didn't get around to watching it until now. It's an investigation of homoerotic tickling videos and who is making/funding them. Turns out the main person behind the tickling video industry is quite possibly the most sad and pathetic person on earth.

It's a follow up from the guys that made 7 days in Hell. 7DiH is easily worth a watch.

Lance Armstrong's Kevin Bacon number is now 1. Could easily go down as his greatest achievement.

Watched A Good American yesterday. Yet more reason for me to be disgusted by our government. Appalling.

Re: Documentaries

Watched episode 1 of Ken Burns' Vietnam doc today. Will watch the rest this week as they air. I am very not knowledgeable about the war so this has been super informative and as always with Burns very good.
