    Because I have been recently diagnosed with "Gout" I have gone from a very active lifestyle to just laying aroun, so this movie hit me very hard...

    Just saw "Blackfish" on Netflix today.

    Excellent, but very heartbreaking documentary about Orcas in captivity at Sea World. Focusing on why they have been attacking trainers, with some of the attacks resulting in their deaths. Highly recommended.

    I have seen so many documentaries,

    mainly on documenaryheaven.com but by far the most interesting one I have seen is Zeitgeist. You can find it on YouTube.

    The genre of horror fiction has never worked

    for me because it honestly can’t compete with the horrors we see in the real world. What has been revealed about the Catholic Church in recent years is more horrific than anything the most gifted writers of fiction could ever create. This disturbing Frontline documentary...

    Ken Burns Is A Story Teller Like No Other.

    I love Ken Burns documentaries. I can get droopy eyed at some directors, even though the topic is interesting. But Mr. Burns always gives just enough information and then moves on. Kind of like a girls skirt... should be just long enough to cover the subject. Anything more gets...

    I can't stop watching them.

    Sometimes I've seen a documentary so many times so I just keep it on as background 'music'. Murder and serial killer documentaries are my favourite, but I also enjoy nature or religion documentaries where they debate different theories and stuff like that.

    Absent

    I have recently watched a documentary on Netflix called Absent. It is about the affect of absent fathers on children and adults. This film will absolutely break you heart, however, I think it is a must see for every to better understand the human heart and those around us.

    The Real World

    I'm a firm believer in "The truth is stranger than fiction". I do enjoy a well made movie, but prefer non fiction factual documentaries. History, archaeology, and anthropology simply fascinate me.

    They're my favorite thing to watch.

    Way better than reality because it's actually real and not scripted. I think HBO has some of thebest and I watch some on YouTube. I enjoy a large variety of genres. I love the so much because they take me too a different place.
