Need Documentary Recommendations


I have been on a documentary bender lately. I was looking for the "movies we can agree don't suck thread, but couldn't find it". I have watched Craigslist Joe, Cocaine Cowboys, and Queen of Versailles in the last few nights. Looking for some stuff you guys found interesting. I have seen all the 30 for 30's so those are no good.

My two favorite documentary series:

The Day The Universe Changed -- Examination of how technology has affected history

Hollywood -- A history of American silent movies, with lots of great clips and interviews with many stars and directors
