Recommended Docs

  • Public

This is a topic where you can say which documentary has really impressed you, and why people should see it. Can be a recent one or an all-time favourite. Can't be your own though, sorry...

This topic is for praising the work of others, not your own. If you want to beat the drum for your own documentary, please don't do it here. Fans use our Public Classifieds, and Professionals have their own Shameless Self-Promotion topic.

We also have a Documentary Films topic for our Professionals where the debate is private and possibly more controversial. This topic here is for recommendations to the documentary-interested public.

The one film that sticks with me more than any other doc I've ever seen is CAPTURING THE FRIEDMANS.

American Movie is possibly my all time funniest doc choice ever, about obsessive moviemaking.

Closely followed by the gem, Exit Through the Gift Shop, also about obsessive movie making, in a strange sort of way...

And just to round out a trio of great films about obsessive movie making, don't forget Lost in La Mancha.
