A time capsule of archive footage strung together with a narration. Adam Curtis does a good job of dissecting and displaying very different, competing, diametrically opposed dreams for futures that could have been and nightmares that have past, but are destined to reappear
A very mixed bag documentary, supposedly it brings together several scientists from very different fields, though these fields are primarily the cutting edge of human consciousness, miscroscopic life and deep space research, yes a lot of excitement about space and half the scientists are female, which is just silly feminist promotion, equally, not every scientist is equally articulate.
So when you...
A fantastic musical documentary about mass formation in humans, the decline of empires, historical trauma, the fog of conspiracies, and the clash of power and group identity
A journey into geo-political history from the perspective of someone who had a hand in crafting it. Is McNamara giving post-hoc rationalizations to bolster his legacy? or is the fog of war thicker than most are truthful enough to admit?

A minimalistic documentary comprised of interviews of Californians ruminating on society's relation to pets and animals in general. There are some pretty compelling trains of thought expressed by people in this film. The level of thought from average people back in 1978 is more nuanced than the curtailed box people through on such subjects...

A documentary in which Werner Herzog, who is apposed to the death penalty, compiles interviews and video on the Michael Perry's triple homicide case for which Perry is on death row.
Herzog questions everyone interviewed in this from his anti-capital punishment perspective, yet maintains a level of skepticism that makes this film engaging...
Werner Herzog is a bit grandiose about himself, but he does make some fun commentary that diverges from the cliches most film makers end up repeating about the purpose of film, it's relationship to society and so on.

Entertaining and funny series sequencing and dramatizing events surrounding a Kentucky attorney making off with social security funds, focusing on his personal history and the impact the investigation had on his employees, and local community
Interesting and informative for a non-Norwegian, not really into metal ether so for me this was kind of just an interesting snap shot related to a guy who is mentioned in various online rightwing clusters
Had to watch the first hour on 2x but I'm glad it exists. We need more content like this on the right so we can share it when loved ones begin to question the bullsh*t normie narratives. It's more palatable to apolitical friends to watch this documentary than to get them into forums and podcasts and streams. And I've found that edgy memes or tiktoks usually don't go over well with females. So the fact...
The big reveal that the woman was a fat gay man catfishing was not a big reveal whatsoever for anyone who grew up with the internet but it's still fascinating to see the story unravel. But also the surprise was ruined because I accidentally watched the 20 minute follow up video entitled "The Tickle King" because the first SockShare link embedded it. Don't make the same mistake...
Weird and disgusting, but interesting. Always seems to be strange Americans with too much money that try to ruin everyone's day
Morbidly funny, character documentary about 2 complete cooks
Funny when circumstances scenes demand attention, but sad and dysphoric on the whole when taking everyone involved in the filming of Coven's dynamics into account
Apocalipse is coming
A filmic Collage of human life filmed around the world in the early 90s. There is no narrative, the juxtaposition of religious events and practices with material happenings makes for a reflective viewing experience
I thought it was a fictional retelling of Robert Crumb's life because he is such a bizarre character IRL that you can't tell if he's an actor or not. After a few scenes I realized and then checked the movie description and cast to confirm. His family is even weirder. Literally autistic or at least on the spectrum. Gets pretty dark and they are unabashedly degenerate. Seems like they all have a genetic...
One of the first attempts to create a genuine moving film, its a short scene of the film maker and his family doing a short dance, or walkabout, I am sure they felt really silly. Very boring, but important in the history of moving pictures
I picked up this documentary on one of the dozens of free streaming sites, now there are some sports I love, mostly everything to do with the human body and physical violence, I like boksing and wresteling, love (female ;>) gymnastics, love dance, like extreme sports and of course surfing, primarily the laid back, masculine atmosphere, nothing better then seeing well build young men and woman engaging...
Slavoj Zizek is probably the only staunchly left wing thinker today that I care to pay attention to, his takes on classic movies aren't that bad, I'm kind of skeptical of his psychoanalytic takes and certain principals of psychoanalysis on the whole. For Example the birds in the film The Birds by Alfred Hitchcock are not "raw incestuous energy."
