Your favorite documentary?

I actually have several.

Planet Earth is amazing. We're halfway through it right now. The next episode is about Jungles. :D I also watched one called Living Dolls on youtube last month and it was really fascinating. And the one about Prussian Blue - Nazi Pop Twins.

Oh, and Outfoxed, it's about Fox News. I love to hate them. :D

One more: Who Killed the Electric Car? Watch it and try not to get angry. I think that might be impossible.

Now I'll stop rambling. I want to learn about new ones. :D

[ Jesus camp] - Very objective
The Root of all Evil - Ted Haggard scene is scary
The Most Hated Family in America - Case of a group of individuals with insane / hateful beliefs, who get persecuted for their ideas, and somehow feel their persecution brings them validation

If you can't guess, I'm not very religious.

(Oh yeah, and the Zeitgeist, but that has already been mentioned)
Is The Most Hated Family In America about Fred Phelps?
Yeah it is; actually it's about the whole Phelps family. It's another fantastic Louis Theroux BBC documentary. I recommend most of the Louis Theroux docs.
I've been watching it for a little while now. I'm at a loss for words on these people. It seemed like Louis kind of got offended over a few things they have said. I don't really blame him though.

I've been wanting to see all three of those, actually! I've seen a lot of clips from Jesus Camp - highly disturbing stuff. Reminds me of church camp. But I love when they start forcing the children to speak in tongues and one little girl seems to get stuck saying "chicky" over and over again. She sounds like my boyfriend's Cuban grandmother. Yay! I think more than anything that I'm trying to find humor in it, though I normally just end up really angry. :P
who killed the electric car.

Ha! I have outfoxed on my shelf right now :p I have given up on TV news media and their internet spawn (that's across the board - not just Fox) :/ Planet Earth - absolutely... I wish I had an HD method of watching it. Absolutely amazing and very well done. SiCKO, I thought, was pretty good... It's the only Moore moviefilm I've seen... But I can sympathize to some degree... My parents have been waiting to turn 50 so they can finally get better insurance through AARP (they're self insured as they own what's classified as a "micro business") :/ We're going to have a "Happy Semi-Centenial" birthday for my father in a few weeks :p
Also... Touching the Void - Story of two climbers and their perilous journey up the west face of Siula Grande in the Peruvian Andes in 1985. After watching it I felt like I'd just climbed the mountain! Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer - Nick Broomfield's second documentary on Aileen Wuornos, who was executed in 2002 for killing seven men.
My recommendations would be: Dig! - Documentary following 2 rocks bands; the Brian Jonestown Massacre and the Dandy Warhols, compiled from 7 years of footage. The King of Kong - Diehard video game fans compete to break World Records on classic arcade games. Brilliant! One Day in September - Oscar winning documentary about the 1972 Munich Olympics, that were interrupted by Palestinian terrorists taking Israeli athletes hostage. Gripping stuff. I'm off to watch 'Who Killed the Electric Car' and 'Room 335' on your recommendations...

A great motorcycle flick "On Any Sunday" some awesome shots about motorcycling on any Sunday of the year. Made by the same guys who did "Endless Summer" about surfing around the world.
