I'm in the UK but accidentally installed unlocator and now netflix thinks I'm in th USA so I have a lot more choice than before.

I can't remember the names, but there are a couple of good ones on Steve Jobs, I found them pretty interesting.

Also, Anthony Bourdaine (sp) Destination Unknown... those are good.

Thanks, I have seen the Anthony Bourdaine ones and enough steve jobs stuff already,

I'm watching chariots of the gods again to see what made me believe it all those years ago until I find something better!

I enjoyed 'Genghis Blues.' It's about a blind musician traveling to Tuva to compete in a throat singing competition.
Spoiler alert...he smashes.

"Zeitgeist: The Movie" is a pretty interesting documentary that offers alternative perspectives on religion and other issues in the world. It was made in 2007 but still provides some thought-provoking ideas.

As a pharmacy student, I personally enjoyed "'___': The Spirit Molecule," "Breaking the Taboo," and "Neurons to Nirvana" as the 1st and 3rd offer a unique perspective on illicit drugs as possible remedies for different psychological disorders and the 2nd describes the cons of the ongoing War on Drugs.

A lot of thought-provoking documentaries under the Critically-acclaimed and Political categories as well


Just noticed how many documentaries I've watched by the way O.o

I'm more than happy to watch US based ones as I already have a pretty good idea about life and history in England.

One of my guilty pleasures is trash american tv shows but was looking for something with a bit of meat on the bone.

I know of a few video game documentaries..

"Indie Game: The Movie" was pretty good if you have an interest in the tribulation of independent game makers.

"Minecraft: The Story of Mojang" is another good game documentary, but sadly is not on Netflix. However, "Video Games: The Movie" is on Netflix and was not terribly bad.

"King of Kong" was probably the best game documentary I've seen and it is available on Netflix.

If your up for some hard stuff, watch 'Sick: The Life and Death of Bob Flanagan.'
It will leave a mark. Not for the squeamish.

I refuse to pay for a tv licence and sattelite tv so netflix is my only real option right now.

Most everything is available online. Check out how to use torrents to download stuff. You won't need to rely on Netflix.
