Inside Job is the best Doc I've seen for ages,was good on the big screen..had an impact.

This Doc by Adam Curtis on Power,the rise of industry over politicians and the decline of Britain is very good ,involves the guy who started the SAS,Jimmy Goldsmith(corporate raider of the 80's and other ne'er do wells: "The Mayfair Set" :

The Century of the Self

It's about the rise of the consumer culture, and the modern narcissistic identity, and the role that Freudian psychoanalysis played in all of it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IyPzGUsYyKM

"To many in both business and government, the triumph of the self is the ultimate expression of democracy, where power is truly moved into the hands of the people. Certainly the people may feel they are in charge, but are they really? The Century of the Self by Adam Curtis tells the untold and controversial story of the growth of the mass-consumer society. How is the all-consuming self created, by whom, and in whose interest?

The Freud dynasty is at the heart of this compelling social history. Sigmund Freud, founder of psychoanalysis; Edward Bernays, who invented public relations; Anna Freud, Sigmund's devoted daughter; and present-day PR guru and Sigmund's great grandson, Matthew Freud. Sigmund Freud's work into the bubbling and murky world of the subconscious changed the world. By introducing a technique to probe the unconscious mind, Freud provided useful tools for understanding the secret desires of the masses. Unwittingly, his work served as the precursor to a world full of political spin doctors, marketing moguls, and society's belief that the pursuit of satisfaction and happiness is man's ultimate goal..."

RE: 50 documentaries to see before you die
found some new one's:

http://www.vice.com/the-vice-guide-to-tr...-liberia-1
After watching this I never new how fucked up Liberia was. Children shooting coke, hookers, defecating on the beach, AIDS, corruption x1000, the people who shot this doc nearly got into to some shit while there it's worth a look.

Also one about North Korea seems tame compared to the one about Liberia :

Are those vice.com the same as VBS or something like that? I was checking them out on netflix and they have a few on different countries. The one on Poland is pretty good. Ita a young host so he's going to bars and things like that.

RE: 50 documentaries to see before you die
Al Jazeera has done some really nice docs, especially about the global financial crisis and the top 1%.

Here's a comprehensive one they did about the global financial collapse called Meltdown (four-part series):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e8dlqX9-v...re=related (part 1)

You can find parts 2-4 in the margins. The insights are truly groundbreaking. Shit you won't find on CNN.

This is one they did on the top 1% (25-min clip)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdVODFombco


Other documentaries I like in general are:

The Ascent of Money by Niall Ferguson (epic):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Xx_5PuLIzc


The War on Democracy by John Pilger (fascinating glimpse into the history of American imperialism in Latin America):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtZcjt28Oxg

Though not really a documentary, this interview with the author of Confessions of an Economic Hitman is eye-opening. I actually know John Perkins and have met up with him twice in the Bay Area (see attached pic). He's got some wild stories:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTbdnNgqfs8

If I think of any more, I'll revisit this thread and drop some links.

I recommend "The Thin Blue Line" by Errol Morris. A man was actually freed from Death Row after being convicted by a jury after this film was released to the public. Everything Errol Morris does is amazing but this is his masterpiece. Seriously, a life changing film.

I'm not going to lie, that documentary made me cry. I think any human being watching it will have the same reaction. Good selection.
