    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.

    How to Survive a Plague- fairly popular last

    year, but if you haven't seen it you should. It's the story of the activists and founders of the AIDS groups ACT UP and TAG as they fight for the development of effective HIV/AIDS medications. I found it inspiring and incredibly moving, definitely shouldn't be written of as just...

    Ken Burns Is A Story Teller Like No Other.

    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.

    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.

    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.
