Watched "Only the Dead" last night. Made by an aussie.
It's pretty graphic in some parts but if you want to see and learn more about the Iraq war then I highly recommend it. Short too, just over an hour.

Seven Steps To Mercy: Cracking The Shakespeare Code

This film genuinely shocked me and had me mulling on what I had watched for days.

Theres a trailer on youtube, but I have elected not to post it as it has spoilers in it. Best to watch with no prior knowledge at all.

Think Da Vinci Code, only non fiction, involving original Shakespearian texts.If this sounds at all appealing head for your nearest dodgy download site.

These have probably been mentioned, but last week I watched Welcome to Leith and Muscle Shoals, and each was excellent.

Then I started watching the second Somm, and it sucked.

My friend made this doco - http://www.punks4westpapua.com/

It's pretty lo-fi, but has some horrifying information about the oppression and murder of West Papua's people.

Aah, the arsehole strikes again, running his mouth off whilst not having a drymountin clue.

Just to clarify, you haven't watched the film, haven't ever even heard of it, yet you are happy to publicly run it down.... then for good measure nitpick my spelling?

Can you not see how poorly you come over?

Are you really sooo devoid of any self awareness?

The Barkley Marathons is a fun doc on Netflix. It's about an ultramarathon in Tennessee organized by a few smart ass guys. In its 30 year history only 14 people have finished.

Good doco, the Aussie being Michael Ware, former Time/CNN correspondent in Baghdad.
Thanks for the tip wottagun.

OJ: Made in America was pretty damn fantastic. .fairly dense for a nearly 8hr doc, gives some really great insight in to how beloved OJ was before June 1994, and what a sad figure he has become since then
