i loved the cove. i cried TWICE!

you kill a human being in a movie and nothing, unless it is well done.
but you harm a cute critter and you have me ...
watch it, seriously. it was competing against the Food Inc and Which way home, two solid docs and still won, with reason.

Food Inc i liked because it is very informative without grossing you out.

I watched a BBC 4 doc called "Tweed" about the decline of Harris Tweed industry and it's effects on tailors, and textile manufacturing towns. Really revealing and sad.

the Cove was REALLY good! It made me cry too.

did anybody watch EARTH last year? I liked that - it was kind of the same as Planet Earth. Disney's releasing another documentary called OCEANS this year, which looks AWESOME. I like nature docs

I really enjoyed Seamless. It was a great look at the up and coming designers and their struggles as well as interviews with Anna Wintour, Tom Ford and industry insiders on making it and problems designers face.

Coming Out Under Fire was also really interesting. I don't often hear the stories and the struggles of the gays and lesbians who fought for this country in WWII.

This doc came up in a conversation about old Hollywood scandals.

At an MGM party in 1937, an extra is raped. Her attempts at justice make the front pages, but are secretly countered by the pervasive influence of the powerful studio. Ultimately, the story falls into oblivion for 65 years.

An interesting (and tragic) look at the dark side of Studio Era Hwood.

I watched To Market, To Market, to Buy a Fat Pig last night. It was a nice documentary on various farmers' markets across the United States, and included interviews with vendors and their customers. Pretty cool to watch, but nothing mind blowing.

Thanks for this recommendation. I'm going to add it to my Netflix queue.

I watched Babies yesterday... it wasn't exactly what I expected, and it felt long - but I did enjoy what I saw of it.

Exit Through The Gift Shop

This year, I saw this docu/movie at a film-festival in September, about this guy that was possessed by his videocamera, and his passion to film streetARTists. Such a fun movie to watch.

here's one I liked, about Julius Schulman's modernist architecture photography

Visual Acoustics (2008)




and another one, about a hilariously bad movie that's recently had a cult revival

Best Worst Movie (2009)
