Documentary world

***Can`t sleep***

This are some really amazing documentaries that I have seen in recent years. Inspirational. Breathtaking.

I am sure there are many amazing works that I am not aware of.
Which ones realy left you in awe?

Re: Documentary world

Uff,so many documentaries... I will mention just my top 20 from last few years:
Tarnation (2003)
Dear Zachary (2008)
Weather Underground (2002)
A Skin too few (2002)
About a son (2006)
Hearts and minds (1974)
Jonestown :the life and death of Peoples Temple (2006)
Paradise lost 1&2
The cats of Mirikitani (2006)
Bodysong (2003)
Decasia (2002)
The Devil and Daniel Johnston (2005)
Beyond this place (2010)
Koyaanisqatsi (1982) + other 2 parts of trilogy
Capturing the Friedmans (2003)
Encounters at the End of the World (2007) + anything that Herzog done really
In the Realms of the Unreal (2004)
Cosmos (1980)
Catfish (2010)
PJ20 (2011)

Some of them like Heart and Minds, or Dear Zachary I could only watch once, cause they leave me paralyzed and depressed for weeks, but generally documentary is my favorite genre.

Re: Documentary world

A great one about musical scene of Istambul is
Sound of Istambul- Crossing the bridge

I cant find one with english subs from youtube,and most of it is in german and turqish but if you find one with subs- it worth watching. Has inspired me to visit Istambul
