Favorite documentaries?

The History channel website was having a good clearence sale the other day, so I ordered a couple dvd's. Last Stand of the 300, Battle of Thermopylae, and Heroes of the Holocaust. I watched Last Stand of the 300 earlier and it was very impressive. It went into detail of everything that lead up to the battle and what happened during and after. There was a lot that I didn't know about. If you are into Greek battles or Persian military history I highly recommend this documentary. It discussed King Leonidas life, Xerxes life, the sea battle that took place during the battle and what took place before a boy could become a man.

What are your favorite documentaries or recommended documentaries?

Resurrect Dead is pretty entertaining if you're a conspiracy person. Watching it now. About half way through.

I read the book "The devils knot" about this. There is a sequel made now that they are out. I can't find those movies anywhere though. It's terrible how those kids were judged.

That one is great. "I held a butchers knife to her throat and I said, you better start fryin' them eggs a little bit better. I'm sick of eating them sloppy, slimy eggs."

Just watched Jiro Dreams of Sushi on Netflix

Somehow they made a movie about a 80 year old Japanese guy who makes sushi fascinating and compelling for about 90 minutes. Recommend.

As Buck mentioned, Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles is very good. They do a good job of framing the entire documentary as a detective case that they're attempting to solve, complete with timelines, suspects, locations, etc. And the subject matter is trippy enough to keep it all interesting.

Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin' About Him)? is a good one. I'd heard of the guy before but didn't know much about him. It was incredible how many songs I recognized during the film for only vaguely being aware of the guy. Here's a wiki description:

Quote:
David Leaf and John Scheinfeld interviewed close to three dozen of Nilsson's friends, colleagues and extended family, who all shared their memories of Harry Nilsson, his music and how it affected them. This was put together in a documentary where we follow Harry Nilsson from childhood to death, enjoying the highs and lows along with him, from Grammy wins through divorce and substance abuse.

The film features original interviews with well-known friends and acquaintances of Nilsson, including Perry Botkin, Jr., Micky Dolenz, Terry Gilliam, Mark Hudson, Eric Idle, Al Kooper, Randy Newman, Yoko Ono, Van Dyke Parks, Richard Perry, Jimmy Webb, Paul Williams, Robin Williams, Brian Wilson and The Smothers Brothers. Also included are interviews with Nilsson's family, including his wives and children. Perhaps the most notable absence in the film is Ringo Starr, who does not feel comfortable talking about three people in person: John Lennon, George Harrison and Harry Nilsson. Another notable absence in the film is arranger-composer George Tipton, who worked closely with Nilsson on nearly all of his early RCA recordings - they reportedly had an unexplained and permanent falling-out, and Tipton refused to be interviewed for the film.
