I like documentaries. Me and Jen watched a lot of Louis Theroux documentaries. He's not only hilarious but a really good journalist. Do you know about him in the Yoo Ess?

Documentaries have always interested me, though I've always preferred ones that involve somewhere around music. But now that I've become a little older and a little more interested in the world we live in I'm more open to documentaries.

Watched a PBS Documentary called Women Who Make America last night. It was actually really interesting and information. Although, I suppose those that are more conservative may find it a bit biased.

Most documentaries in a way are biased. I watched a podcast where the guy, who's helped film documentaries before, explain that whoever is filming the documentary can manipulate what the people say into what they want the viewer to know.

I love Theroux! I don't get to see them on the television but I watch them online. I got hooked on him after I watched "The most hated family in America". His Documentaries are always so insightful and he has such a charm about him that allows him to get a lot out of people.

It was pretty bad unfortunately, but also kind of funny because of the parish rivalries between the consultants and all the nonsense.

Anyways, thanks for the list of sites! I don't have much time to watch documentaries right now, but now I know where to go if I do. Any particularly good ones you watched recently?
Oh man I could go on! It depends on what you like; I recently saw Black Fish, it's very stirring and has garnered a lot of attention recently.

Children Underground is one of my all time favorites.

Capturing the Friedmans, The Bridge and Deliver us from Evil are the first that come to mind. If you let me know what kind you like I can tell you more.

They can be terrifying, especially for those who live in the US. But it's great for being better informed.

I wish PBS made more documentaries, they make good ones.

Well anything can be biased if you argue it that way. A good documentary shows information without being tainted by bias.

And you really can't go by one guy, there are always people with hidden agendas all over the world. But then there are people like Theroux who just go with the facts.

I have never seen nor heard of a documentary that was bad (and please don't direct me to one that is (or maybe you should...)). I can't wait to start making documentaries of my own.

Not going to lie, I've thought about that idea myself to make a documentary.

The one I want to make, or see anyways, the something about the revolution of the internet. I've put some thought into it, and if I were ever to do such a thing I think it would have to be in volumes because there is so much to talk about when it comes to the internet.

I'd definitely want to make a doc about a music artist that's never been done before. So many to choose.

And something I've really wanted to make is a documentary about a fictitious event/person/whatever, and make it seem believable.

Something somewhat similar to that is;

That my dear is called a "mockumentary", one of the most popular ones being "Spinal Tap", and a lot of "found footage movies" follow that forumla; Blair Witch Project, Grave Encounters, Rec, etc.

That's what I really meant. My idea of the documentary would involve almost all aspects of the internet. So many.

If that was the case you'd have to do a series, instead of feature length docs about one subject doing one hour docs about one thing. Like one for online dating, trading, pirating, forums, social networks etc. Like the BBC did with "The Dark Side of Porn".

But if you want to discuss all facets of the internet you'll have to talk about Deep Web and I wouldn't touch that stuff.
