Default Best Documentary

I've seen "Touching The Void", about two English hikers who go through hell on one of the highest peaks in the world. It was very well done. My favorite.

Another good one is "Super Size Me".

I was wondering if anyone knows of any other documentaries that are good.

Sicko and Hoop Dreams, I'll check those out. I heard good things about Hoop Dreams, but keep forgetting to rent it.

Why We Fight is by far the best documentary I've seen.

I hear the one about credit cards and debt is pretty good as well.

"Why We Fight" was a good one.

"An Inconvenient Truth" was good too.

I thought Supersize Me was pretty good. I also think any documentary on WWII, is pretty good.

In sports, I do like Hoop Dreams, also if you can check out Bud Greenspan's 16 Days of Glory - tells you about how there's much more to winning those gold medals than you see on TV...

It was entertaining but it had the opposite effect to me. I was just cravin Whoppers after that.

Watch the trailer to "Touching The Void". Best documentary. It'll make you not want to mountain climb.
