Thread: Documentaries You Would Recommend

  1. #21
    I want to see the new documentary Super High Me.

    http://www.superhighmemovie.com/about/story/
    Super High Me features comedian Doug Benson and explores the current situation with medical marijuana in California and the United States, specifically focusing on the conflict between federal and state law and the explosive growth in medical marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles over the past two years.

    As part of his journey, Doug smokes, eats and vaporizes medical marijuana for thirty consecutive days in order to get “Super High.” But there is a catch–first Doug must go thirty days without any marijuana and undertakes a number of tests, completing the same tests while medicated and while sober, in an effort to find out what marijuana does and how it really affects people. Along the way, we follow Doug as he goes out on the road to stand up gigs across the country and hangs out with fellow comedians Sarah Silverman, Bob Odenkirk and Patton Oswalt.

    I meant the actual film footage, not the narrator, when I used the word "enchanting," Leif. But I agree regardless

    And maybe you've been listening a bit too often to that old Beatles' tune, Norwegian Woody

    American Blackout about vote suppression got me fired up. Here's a preview.

    I watched Darwin's Nightmare today for a class. It's about the Nile Perch fishery in Lake Victoria and the local economy of the Tanzanian people. Very moving. Here's a brief preview.

    You know, now that I think back on the Planet Earth series, maybe I enjoyed it so much because of Miss Weaver's voice. It is very pleasant to listen to.

    And all that link did for me was make me want to eat supper

    A movie has been made about me!

    Has anyone else noticed how many of the recommended documentaries are about the pervasive corruption of the American Republic at just about every level? I think I'll go crawl into bed and never get up again.
