Mad Hot

This movie leaves me with one question . . .
"Herb, will you dance with me?"

It's stuff like this . . .

and this . . .

and . . .
an eleven year old girl named Emma who says things like "It has been scientifically founded that women are superior creatures to men. That is clear!" and "Studies show that eleven year old girls are the primary target for kidnapping . . . you know - kidnapping. Those sickos that LIKE little girls!?!?!?" . . . .

that give me cause to throw up two big thumbs up (or in the words of my husband, two big"Schwap Daddies" . . . he told me today that he made this phrase up to go with a thumbs up. He is currently beta testing it for coolness) to this sweet little documentary . . .

Other favorite documentaries . . .

Born into Brothels
Super Size Me

What are your suggestions? I would love to incorporate more docs into my life.

Big grin and Schwap Daddy!

Hands on a Hard Body (this is not a porn)

hear hear! HANDS ON A HARD BODY is a must see! this doc prophesies america's obsession with reality tv and the "human drama".

the wife and i also enjoyed SPELLBOUND and MURDERBALL.

of course the vh1 behind the music on milli vanilli was quite crushing as well.

i also loved LOST IN TRANSLATION. it's not really a documentary, but it's the most perfect film i've ever witnessed.

We watched Born Into Brothels per your suggestion, and we really liked it. Still haven't seen Super Size Me, as Andrew is very attached to his Double Cheeseburgers.

i totally agree with you about HANDS ON HARDBODIES, but man...asking someone at the local video store where to find that one can lead to some very interesting looks.

i saw one by PBS about chickens that was great. can't remember the name of it, but i loved it nonetheless. haven't eaten anything but cage free eggs since.

natural history of the chicken!

i own the HOAHB doc, if you're interested in borrowing it sometime.

what about the hot dog doc by pbs. it's a must see and you watch eat while eating a hot dog.

LOVE this documentary! It is great! I agree. Ok, here are some I have seen recently.

Spellbound - follows 8 kids on their way to the national spelling bee

Step into Liquid - surfing, but you don't have to be a surfer to appreciate. soundtrack rocks.

Any Ken Burns documentary - all are great Civil War, Baseball, West, Mark Twain.

Hands on a Hard Body...YES!!!

And I'm a fan of the Michael Moore films...whether you like him or not, the films are an interesting watch.

Murderball is a must-see as well as Invisible Children. The latter is disturbing, but it is truth, and therefore should be seen.

wowza. now i have a great list. thanks!

i also forgot how many i have already seen.
the chicken documentary is very good. and weird.

couldn't get into murderball. i think the only person in the nation who didn't dig it.

Step Into Liquid made me want to be so much cooler than i will ever be. so great!

i love any movie (documentary or otherwise) that depicts community in a way i will never engage in community - but truly admire the stories of the ways other people enter into community with other humans. hence my love for war and sports movies.

I've been wanting to see Hands on a Hard Body, Spellbound and Murderball, as well as Fog of War. Really I'm interested in any Errol Morris doc.

"The Cruise" was a really great doc about a guy who does unconventional double-decker bus tours of New York.

"Hype" was a decent doc on Seattle music.

I can't believe no one's mentioned "American Movie" yet.
