Nice trip down memory lane... I haven't seen this since I owned it on VHS back in the mid-90s.

From The Back Of The Room

Watched it on amazon instant video. It's about women in the American DIY punk/hardcore music scenes over the last 30 or so years (both behind the scenes and in the bands). I probably would have found it much more interesting if I was even the slightest bit familiar with this type of music; having said that, the biographical elements and social issues held my attention.

The People vs. George Lucas. It's on Netflix.

I tried to watch this, but couldn't get past about 15 minutes. I can't watch most documentaries of this type though.

Inside Chipotle.

Behind the counter? I really love Chipotle in more ways than I can describe. They really care about what they do, and who their customers are.

Now that's a company I would work for; to wit, I might go start applying there.

Not really a documentary, but since it's a nonfiction feature, I figured it goes here better than the movie thread.

On a similar note, I've gone back to Agony and Ecstasy: A Year with English National Ballet. Their Glastonbury performance renewed my interest something fierce.

Yep. If there are two women that are ideal to love and make love to, it's ballerinas and fashion models. What a man would not to have Cara Delevingne or Karlie Kloss! What a joy there is in a Russian ballerina, or any ballerina for that matter. Ballet though is not about lust, but about the beauty of the body in motion. But there's a Sherlock Holmes story where Dr. Watson is flirting with the ballerinas after a show and he is telling Holmes about why ballerinas are so desirable.

I saw the first one.  It was ok.  The guy's girlfriend is really annoying throughout the film.  I like the idea of building one of these houses.

Not exactly a documentary but it's more of a movie Biography of a Maronite Lebanese Catholic Monk renamed Charbel.
It's Not exactly Orthodox but they do come close and it is very touching. I love it!
The whole movie is legally for free aswell! The production is amazing. It's in Arabic but with English Subtitles.

Hope anyone who watches it enjoys it as much as i did   ;D

Just watched "Kidnapped for Christ" today. It's basically about abuses at an Evangelical run Behavior modification school.

Sad to say, it wasn't as good as I expected. Still quite a good documentary I must say.

I'm planning to watch "Korengal" next.

Watched one on Netflix last night called "Happy." It was really good and would recommend it to anyone.



from http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1613092/
"HAPPY takes us on a journey from the swamps of Louisiana to the slums of Kolkata in search of what really makes people happy. Combining real life stories of people from around the world and powerful interviews with the leading scientists in happiness research, HAPPY explores the secrets behind our most valued emotion."

It's the video version of Pacepa's book. Couldn't care less about the sensationalist presentation. That is done just to make the publishing financially viable.


The core of the information is still important, which is that Russia intelligence has always invested more money, time and effort in disinformation than in espionage or even counter-intelligence.

It shows that although it certainly does not have the world-controlling power conspirationists believe, it probably influenced the 20th and 21st century more than skeptics would be confortable with.

"Us and the Game Industry is a film about new thinkers at the new frontier of experimental computer game development. We delve into this untapped world of potential to meet the people who are succeeding in reinventing the medium of game design and challenging the established norms with their finely crafted work. This film explores how their motivation, design process, focus and execution are creating unique and new possibilities of connecting people and providing the possibility for uncharted experiences outside the normal realm of commercial games."

Infinite Secrets: Inside The Archimedes Palimpsest

A Byzantine euchologion from 1229AD made by reusing old parchment, is found to contain, among other texts, long lost ancient mathematical treatises by Archimedes.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfGamQ7Un6o



Very interesting documentary although the people in the video make some odd claims.

Early on they claim that the 'Age of Faith' killed scientific progress made by Greeks and Romans. That is at odds with what I've read elsewhere indicating that the decline was already happening before Christianity became established as well as the fact that many monasteries' libraries preserved much of what was available for use in the 'Enlightenment' period. Anyway, I plan to start a new thread on this topic...

The other odd claim is that if this lost document was known we would be in Mars by now. That it's loss set the science world back by 100 years...

Interesting nonetheless...

Project site is also interesting...

The Overnighters

2014

The North Dakota fracking industry has drawn thousands of men from all over the world, causing severe strain on existing infrastructure in Williston ND.

Men gamble on finding work, sometimes borrowing money for a one way ticket, hoping they will find work once they arrive. 

Some are not terribly employable in a competitive environment that favours the young, strong and able.  Additionally, there is a housing shortage causing rent to be unaffordable if a place can be found at all. 

Pastor Jay Reinke (Lutheran, Missouri Synod) responds by starting the "Overnighters" project at his church in an effort to get men off the streets. 

This a documentary about Jay Reinke, his family, the Lutheran parish, the community, the media, the men who travel far in the hope of bettering their lives. 

Not family viewing due to adult topics.   Available by streaming on Netflix.

Exile Nation: The Plastic People

Ever wonder what happens to the millions of people being deported under the new immigration laws? 

I didn't either until I watched this documentary. 

They are dumped at the border, many of them having grown up and lived in the United States for most of their lives, and they have no family or place to go, some barely speak Spanish.   

This documentary interviews a handful of people to find out what life is like in El Bordo of Tijuana.

Who is Dayani Cristal?

Ever wonder what affect the new immigration laws are having on los illegales who cross the border every year in search of work and a better life in Los Estados Unidos? 

One affect is that many more people are perishing in an attempt to make the journey. 

This documentary follows the case of a dessicated corpse found in the Arizona desert.  The only identification on the body is a tattoo that reads "Dayani Cristal" and a folded up Migrants prayer in the wallet. 

Those who cross the border illegally are told to divest themselves of all identification in case they are apprehended by Border Patrol. 

When someone perishes while making their journey, the lack of identification makes it very difficult to discover who the person is and notify their family. 

This could be the story of any of the thousands who have perished trying to get access to work in the United States. 

Available by streaming on Netflix.

Splinters

2011

Surfing comes to Papua New Guinea. 

This is a documentary about a local effort to bring the sport of surfing to PNG. 

It is a story of youthful dreams of making it big and getting off the island to Australia.

It is a story of provincial humanity, with all its foibles and failed traditions being confronted with change.

It is a story of overcoming all odds and, in the case of one young woman, completely going against the grain to make something of her life.

Becoming a Man in Siberia

Quote
This film describes the destiny of three young boys and their common quest to become men

Very good film that follows two Mongol families; one raising camels, the other reindeer.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

No longer pasting here.

The one about Burt's Bees is awesome.
Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

— Chrysostom

Ordered Thin Blue Line, I'm happy that whatever was told to me about it has already been forgotten. I like going into movies knowing zip beforehand, this is one gift of mine I treasure that I can purge all memory regarding what it is I'm about to experience artistically. I haven't reached the age yet where that purging is going to fall into other mechanical and motor skills....
“I’ve lived to bury my desires,
And see my dreams corrode with rust;
Now all that’s left are fruitless fires
That burn my empty heart to dust.”

Saw the Snowden one, Citizen Four. Pretty unremarkable and most of the conclusions drawn or implied by the doc were completely wrong.

Saw the whole Durst thing. Much ado about nothing. A really poorly made doc.

What I am psyched for and prepping to see is the HBO Scientology doc. Being fascinated by it ever since I was given Dianetics in middle school, I hope it lives up to the hype.

Going to finally watch the Master as part of my weekend of Scientology.

Watched some of the best YouTube clips again of Tom Cruise and his cult. Great stuff.
