    "Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room", "Herb and Dorothy", "Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Prices", "Gay Sex in the '70s", and "Capturing the Friedmans" are a few of my favorites.

    Dan Dicks' "Into the Fire". It gets into the fuckery that was the G20 summit in Toronto last summer.



    From website: "World leaders and activists from around the world gathered for the G20 summit. With over 19,000 police officers and security personnel on hand, the results lead to over 1100 arrests, martial law in downtown Toronto and the most massive violation of civil liberties in Canadian History."

    2 that I saw the makers on Real Time with Bill Maher:

    The Big UN-Easy, about the Civil Core of Engineers and the destruction of New Orleans.

    http://thebiguneasy.com/trailer.html

    Too Big Fail, about the financial industry collapse, centers mainly on The Lehman Brothers, but giants Bank of America and Wachovia are mentioned.

    I saw "Project Nim" a few weeks ago at the Newport Beach Film Festival.

    From the Oscar-winning team behind Man on Wire comes the story of Nim, the chimpanzee who, in the 1970s, became the focus of a landmark experiment that aimed to prove an ape—if raised and nurtured like a human child—could learn to communicate using sign language. If successful, the consequences of the project would be profound, breaking down the barrier between man and his closest animal relative and fundamentally redefining what it is to be human. Combining the testimony of all the key participants, newly discovered archival film, and dramatic imagery, Project Nim tells the picturesque story of one chimpanzee's extraordinary journey through human society and the enduring impact he makes on the people he meets along the way.

    You'll contemplate this movie days after you see it.

    After watching this video, I have to say I'll never look at deaf people the same way.It's changed my whole perception on life, and I never realized that there are many deaf people that enjoy being that way. Be warned you may get angry after watching it though.

    I can't remember the exact title, but it is a 4 part series made by the History Channel called "Hooked". It is an eye opening (and heart breaking) look into the world of drugs. Everything from trafficing to production to users. They do such a great job of showing this hidden world and creates a fairly unbiased view (especially considering the DEA sponsored it).
