I haven't seen it yet but Dear Zachary is supposed to be showing on MSNBC tomorrow (Sunday) night. It's been getting a lot of positive reviews so I'll be checking it out for sure.
My favorite is still Paradise Lost (1 and 2) about the West Memphis 3. Informative and infuriating at the same time.
I know it's been all the talk this year but good God Man on Wire is truly one of the best documentaries I've ever seen. Masterful on all levels. It's Errol Morris level good.
I also finally got to see King of Kong...lots of fun, and Billy Mitchell is one of the evilest men in all of time.
For those of us with Charter on Demand? LOL Murderball No Way!
I'm award winning!
On a related note, I really wish The Shark is Still Working would find a distributor. It's apparently the ultimate Jaws documentary.
I received Runnin' Down a Dream from Netflix and randomly played a chapter... and I watched the Johnny Cash section. Really good.
And it has footage I've always wanted to see: Dave Grohl playing drums for Tom Petty between Nirvana and Foo Fighters. Never saw those episodes of SNL.
I can't wait to watch this in its entirety this weekend.
I love this thread already. I just netflix'd this petty doc, which I had never heard of before this thread.
Recently, I was Man on Wire. So good.
A couple of nights ago, PBS had a documentary called Helvetica, which was about the font of the same name. Didn't have time to watch all of it, but it was really well done and had a great soundtrack.
Net up on the netflix queue is that documentary on cinematography that Bendis keeps praising.
Just watched Listening to You: The Who at Isle of Wight, which is a great concert film. Greatest live band ever in their prime. For some reason I don't have it on DVD, but watched it in HD on Palladia.
Also two enjoyable music docs: Love Story (about the seminal sixties L.A. band) and Standing in the Shadows of Motown (which I'd seen part of, but just picked up dirt cheap for my dad).
