our favorite documentaries

Matt and I watch a lot of documentaries, probably one a week.  Here's a list of our favorites with the shortest tag lines I could think of to entice you:

Fog of War - former Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara tells it like it was
Super Size Me - a man spends 30 days eating nothing but McDonald's
The Greatest Movie Ever Sold - same man takes on product placement and advertisement in movies
Helvetica - a documentary about a font and how you can't ignore it
March of the Penguins - life goes on, even in the harshest of conditions
Grey Gardens - a cooky mother and daughter waste away in the Hamptons
Confessions of a Superhero - they're neither super nor heroes but you will love 'em after this
The September Issue - superbitch Anna Wintour tells people they're too fat and dictates fashion
Who the #$&% is Jackson Pollack - a poor lady vs the snobby art community
Journeys with George - the daughter of Nancy Pelosi goes on a bus ride with George W. Bush as he runs for president
Sicko - love him or hate him, this fat jerk points out some hard to ignore facts about American healthcare
Audience participation: have you guys seen any of these?

loved loved loved March of the Penguins. I'm ashamed to say that's the only of these that I've seen.

I have seen Supersize Me (showed it to my kids when I was doing a nutrition unit in science) and March of the Penguins (in theatres). I want to see Grey Gardens- the play adaptation of that was hailed as very good.
