    I urge you if you haven't seen this to NOT google what it's about but to just watch it. It's available on YouTube and is without a doubt the most moving documentary I've ever watched.
    I saw this at its premiere in 2007. OMG.

    Default Documentary appreciation thread

    I've lost track of the crime docos I've seen through the years, so many, but last night I watched a documentary on Jaycee-Lee Dugard's abduction.

    Women who kill, Serial Killers, Child murderer docos etc, etc are ones I tend to regularly watch.

    I also enjoy S.ex/worker/fetish documentaries, Louix Theroux, Lisa Ling's America, paranormal and music artist biographic and cultural, military/war docos. In fact, it would be a short list if I wrote the type of docos I 'don't' enjoy watching.

    The things I have learnt, had my eyes opened to, become aware of, empathetic to, been enlightened, educated, cried and laughed to as a result of watching documentaries is endless.
    Documentaries really do open your eyes and ears to the world and it's people and make it a smaller place, so thoroughly enjoyable, thought provoking and at times heartbreaking.

    I love docos! There are a few on stan & Netflix which are good but I wish they added more. I mostly watch stuff in YouTube as it has more variety.
    I recently watched food inc and omg what an eye opener it was! It made me never want to eat minced meat again though!
    I love stuff about space, conspiracy theories, the human body, Louie Theroux series etc

    I must be the last person to not watch Louis Theroux! I need to check him out.

    I'm also a huge fan of Dr. Michael Mosley.

    Def watch this one. I'd love to watch it again but i think having just had a son 7 weeks ago I'd be balling through it!

    What's the difference between a doco and a reality show? I'm watching a show now that is classified as a doco on Netflix, called tattoo tales about a Bondi tattoo shop. But it seems like a reality show to me so I'm just wondering what the difference is?

    One thing I really miss about living in the UK is the great documentaries on channel 4 and BBC 2. I really like social documentaries as they appear to my youth work/social work brain. :-) But haven't watched anything good for ages!!
