I'm starting this so that we can recommend/discuss documentaries. I can't be the only one here that loves documentaries. They can be political at times, so let's not discuss the political aspects of them. If you want to recommend a political documentary, go for it. Provide only a summary. Just don't be an asshole. I'll start with a documentary I saw very recently: Collapse. It's based on a long interview with one man, Michael Ruppert, who is an independent investigative journalist of sorts. The documentary outlines a number of interesting topics, notably the utter dependence that industrialized civilization has on petroleum. He talks about food, money, politics and how he believes they are all quite dependent on infinite supplies of cheap oil. Then it goes into "Peak Oil theory," and the impact that dwindling oil supplies have on geopolitical events. The whole time the interviews and clips are going on, there is just a creepy feel to the whole thing. It's dark, mysterious and has pretty ominous music. I'd recommend it on that basis alone. Politics aside, it left me with some interesting questions. I like that. . What are some that you recommend? Seen any that were utter crap? Let's hear it all.
