I was going to post in the movies thread but decided to start a new one instead.

So, last week I watched "The fog of war". Wikipedia describes it as

Quote
The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara is a 2003 American documentary film about the life and times of former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara as well as illustrating his observations of the nature of modern warfare.

Very educational I thought. McNamara certainly seemed repentant of many of his actions and decisions. Glad to see the with age indeed comes wisdom but is anyone paying attention?



And just now finished watching "Flight from Death: The Quest for Immortality".

The summary seemed to be that more or less our entire lives are governed, consciously or unconsciously, by fear of death.  Sad  I don't know that I would agree with a lot of it, but what do I know, I am not a Pulitzer winning anthropologist... From Wikipedia again

Quote
The film's purpose is to investigate humankind's relationship with death, and is heavily influenced by the views of cultural anthropologist Ernest Becker.

Rats! Just found out from the Wikipedia article that "Fog of war" is available for free on Google Videos. Oh well, I hope you enjoy my 3.99 apple! Scroll to the bottom, you can't miss it.

One of the most thought-provoking documentaries that I've seen. Some Indian-American was impersonating as an Indian guru and gained suprisingly devout followers. Some even stayed in contact even after he revealed that he was a fake guru.

How to Die in Oregon, a film about assisted suicide and the reality of facing imminent death. Worth a see, I'd say, regardless of what side of the debate you are on.

I remember watching that one. Very thought-provoking indeed.

A few days ago, I watched a very interesting documentary about the life of the Yongle Emperor and the construction of the Forbidden City.

YouTube. Wink Pretty much everything Worsley is on there. Coast has been going on for a long time, so there are probably several episodes missing, but there's still a lot, even from the first season. I just hope they're not blocked in your country.

I have seen the trailer on this and it looks interesting. It reminds me of that story of an author who wrote a book which described a fictional religion but their readers started taking as being real and started pestering the author even after they flat out said that it was all made up!

I loved that one. It was pretty obvious early on in Super Size Me that Spurlock was full of it. I just didn't know how much.

I like how the Fat Head guy made everything he did publicly available.

"Happy People" was the latest by Werner Herzog that I saw. It's about hunters in Siberia. The Herzog before that that I saw was "Grizzly Man," about an wildlife activist in Alaska who gets eaten by a bear. Werner Herzog is awesome.

 <------- has never seen American Graffiti.

    “Star Wars” is like getting a box of Cracker Jack which is all prizes. This is the writer-director George Lucas’s own film, subject to no business interference, yet it’s a film that’s totally uninterested in anything that doesn’t connect with the mass audience. There’s no breather in the picture, no lyricism; the only attempt at beauty is in the double sunset. It’s enjoyable on its own terms, but it’s exhausting, too: like taking a pack of kids to the circus. An hour into it, children say that they’re ready to see it again; that’s because it’s an assemblage of spare parts—it has no emotional grip. “Star Wars” may be the only movie in which the first time around the surprises are reassuring…. It’s an epic without a dream. But it’s probably the absence of wonder that accounts for the film’s special, huge success. The excitement of those who call it the film of the year goes way past nostalgia to the feeling that now is the time to return to childhood.

Just today I watched two documentaries on the small Central Asian country of Tajikistan on YouTube.  I've read a little here and there on Central Asia and I've always thought they were Turkic in origin.  Tajikistan is predominantly Persian, they practice a mixture of Sunni Islam and nativist religion, and they've recently dropped the Russian suffix -ov from their names.  But what really amazed me was that some of them look Persian while others look Caucasian with blond hair and blue eyes.  I'm not sure I'd want to visit, but I have a new respect for Tajik's and their country.

The Australian science show Catalyst dedicated two episodes on the 'Cholesterol causes obesity' theory so this documentary didn't show me anything new. Although I realise it was meant as a rebuttal to 'Supersize me', I didn't care for their presentation style.

If anyone is interested in the Catalyst episodes here are the links.

the last really good -though very sad- documentary that I saw was the "Armenian Genocide."

I forgot if it was the BBC or the PBS one.  Though all I've seen have been pretty well done.  I also saw one in spanish.  The turkish treatment and cruelty pretty much made me sick.

Apparently, trusting Hitler is what almost caused the Russians to lose the war. This and other of his mistakes which caused some to say that "Russians won the war not because of Stalin, but in spite of Stalin." So, on one hand you have him killing everybody in his way by the tens millions (including friends and priests), using them for unimaginable labor, etc., and on the other hand you have him not even being able to secure his own life and almost destroying the very country that was supposed to worship him. Truly, a one man apocalypse.

Not watching, but I like to recommend "Beyond Torture" about a communist prison camp in Pitesti, Romenia that was more than a prison, it was a place where they did experiments in brainwashing to try to create the "new man" by trying to destroy the personality of people.

http://youtu.be/9QGUTBXgz3g

Also "The Soviet Story" is very good, precisely in making the point that while we have rightfully put Nazism well into the side of evil in our culture and reference, Communism, which killed many more people, which was far more cruel, is still galmourized by many, while it should have the same cultural and historical treatment of Nazism.

Not exactly documentary, more a historical variety show, but I'm an enduring fan of Horrible Histories. As usual with series, though, I find it hard to keep track of it while it airs, so I invest in the DVDs. Looking forward to bagging myself series 4, as soon as I can scrounge up the dosh. Grin
