My Favorite Documentaries

Call me a nerd but I love documentaries! Just saw Year of the Yao last night and I thought it was very informative and entertaining despite not being a huge basketball fan. I had no idea the struggles that Yao had to go through to get to where he is now. I have a newfound respect for him and other athletes from China. They are so dedicated, hardworking, and humble. Anyways, the movie is not really just a basketball movie…like in the extras, the producers called it more of a “cultural” film.

Anyways, I thought I might make a list of other documentaries that I’ve enjoyed:

Spellbound – One of my alltime favorite documentaries. It’s about the national spelling bee kids. It follows a handful of kids and how they prepare for the contest. It’s pretty crazy! The kids are so quirky. Love it.

Jesus Camp – inside look into evangelical christians and christian youth. really interesting!

Supersize Me – Most everyone’s seen this but worth a mention. It didnt’ stop me from eating McDs though! hehe

Grizzly Man – I think I liked this one a lot cuz I had just come back from Alaska and was in love with the outdoors

And despite all the controversy about how biased michael moore is, I enjoy his documentaries. They are pretty amusing! hehe

I’m a documentary lover too:)

Check out: Black Tar Heroin – Dark end of the Street

It’s a bit dated, but very well done! Definitely one of my favs.

Have you seen Sicko? I saw it over the past weekend. Makes me want to move to a different country just for the health care! America is f*cked up indeed.
