Share some neat documentaries, I'll go first

>Citizen four

>TPB AFK
>The Weight of Chains (it's kind of biased but it's not too far from the truth)
>wikileaks secrets and lies (I find the anti wikileaks propaganda to be funny)
>Revolution OS

Gates of Heaven is the golden standard for documentaries in my opinion.

I'd also recommend Helvetica and The Act of Killing.

"Aliens on the Moon"

A great comedy. Except it's a documentary, and that the aliens are harvesting plasma from the sun.

I generally only watch the documentaries that revolve around serial killers and urban legends. Cropsey is a pretty good example of one.

Could you recommend some good documentaries about Mathematics, Astronomy or Computer Science? I've already watched all the ones @idek mentioned.

I'm gonna watch Into the Wild soon. Not really a documentary, but it's close enough.

This isn't a real documentary, but it IS hilarious: C.S.A: The Confederate States of America. It's a comedy/documentary that pokes fun at what history could have been like today if the South had won the American civil war.

Another one that I had looked up thanks to @losi . Krokodil: Russia's Deadliest Drug. It's a VICE documentary and I'll go ahead and include it here:

BBS: The Documentary, it's eight parts, each about forty minutes. It's about the origin of BBS and the subculture that evolved around it. I've only seen the first three, but it's pretty interesting stuff.

Saw your reply and it piqued my interest, I'm on episode 5 and I'm loving it so far. Those guys are really old school.

This one looks like one of those bloods & crips documentaries that I used to watch years ago, I might give it a try.

The only documentary that I can think of is "The King of Hosts" by Vice Japan  but that's not really bara yaoi

Highly recommend Oliver Stones documentaries. Specially "The untold story about the united states" beware though the whole documentary series is together 11 hours long or more if I remember correctly. I have the DVD box at home. Here's something that I believe to be the first episode of the untold story about the united states.


I'm pretty hyped for his new documentary soon, about Edward Snowden. See trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RKto0Yh4so

I saw a really good one, well only like a bit of it.
I think it was called something like "Hunting Hitler" or something, it was on the History channel.

Was pretty cool, I should watch it someday.

Saw "Freedom Downtime" yesterday, good documentary about what was really going on when Kevin Mitnick was arrested. Can recommend to anyone who likes hackers/tech. Very interesting, full video below.
