A partial list of movies (via Netflix) I have watched in the past few years:

Sicko (2007)
Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price (2005)
An Inconvenient Truth (2006)
Murderball (2005)
Sound and Fury (2000)
Super Size Me (2004)
Grizzly Man (2005)
March of the Penguins (2004)
Why We Fight (2005)
The Fog of War (2003)
Bowling for Columbine (2002)
Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004)
Spellbound (2002)
Word Wars (2004)
Wordplay (2006)
Born Into Brothels (2004)
The Blue Planet: Ocean World/Frozen Seas (2001)

Here’s what we can learn from this list. I like documentaries. I am interested in politics, environmental issues, nutrition, language, special needs, advocacy, and justice for all.

Anyone have any suggestions for ones I have missed?

Planet Earth. So, so purty. And so, so much better on DVD, where we get the original David Attenborough narration instead of Sigourney Weaver.

Deep Blue. Control Room. New York Doll. Crumb. This Film Is Not Yet Rated. Who Kilt the 'lectric Car. Winged Migration. Mondovino.

King of Kong. (I actually haven't seen it yet, but it's out on vid now and I've heard nothing but good.)

OK, some of those I have in my queue. And we bought Planet Earth. But can I just say, Winged Migration pissed me off because after imprinted those endangered birds they had to destroy them.

I'll definitely check into the ones I don't know, though. Thanks!

Try Enron, Control Room, Marjoe, Outfoxed, Jesus Camp, and especally Monty Python's The meaning of life

Indulge yourself with the old but still fabulous Harlan County, USA, from 1976 I believe
