Dandy's Delicious Documentaries for Gentilemen
« on: August 07, 2014, 11:27:27 PM »
You can only post documentaries I like and no Willcos allowed.  Posting documentaries about alpha-centaries will get you a spanking* 

Watching this right now; liking it so far



5/10 doc.  4/10 if you were expecting nice African titties.  They crop those out.   

Ok that was pretty good.  Docs with Jimmy Carter in them tend to be better than those that do not have him.   Apparently lifelines is a whole series so I will be watching more of them.  http://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/lifelines/

* have to remember alpha-centaries when spelling documentaries or else it gets spelt documenturies.

I would like to see a documentary on how Father Mike came up with these rules.

"Everything changed on the late evening of August 8th, or 'The Late 88' as it has come to be known. It was on that day that Father Mike, after spending hours watching documentaries, discovered something that would change thread rules forever."

Fucking World War I.

e: Reminds me of some of the German International Brigades in the Spanish Civil War; they had nothing to go back to so they just threw themselves at everything and anything until they were wiped out.

I saw this one on Netflix a couple of years ago.  I wanted to hate it for some reason, but I was really moved and couldn't help it.

I loved Waste Land, but I can see how some people will dislike how melodramatic it can be at times.


The best doc I've seen in the past year is Burn. It follows a fire department in Detroit for a full year. I really can't recommend it enough. Beautifully shot and really nails the feeling of growing up in this part of the world.

Russian nastiness during the Georgia war/occupation. Also some retrospectives of even more nastiness on the black sea coast during the soviet years. Depressing, but really nice. Sad that Olga Nekrasova (co-director) passed away now.



Stranded, about THAT Uruguayan rugby team that crashed in the Andes and survived by eating human flesh. Amazing docu.



A Crude Awakening, a depressing docu about Peak Oil (FULL MOVIE!)



American Movie, about two Wisconsin misfits who want to make a great horror movie. Is on youtube in parts, but can also be downloaded here and there.



Pianomania, about an amazing Steinway tuner who knows the intricacies and sound characteristics of every Steinway piano in the country. Fantastic and hilarious, even if you're not that into classical music.



Manda Bala, about São Paulo, Brazil, and all the business that has evolved in the city as a consequence of the violence and corruption. Bad trailer, but film is gud.



The King Of Communism, mostly hilarious docu about the Ceaucescu couple that ruled communist Romania.



Shadow Of The Holy Book, another hilarious film about a dictatorship, this time about Turkmenistan under former leader Saparmurat Niyazov. Low budget, but worth watching.



The Day After Trinity, about J R Oppenheimer. Probably my fave docu ever. FULL MOVIE!

For some reason this slipped my mind, should've posted this first. REALLY interesting

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/films/poisoners

Some great criminal investigations but some of the most interesting stuff is how they were often tapped for public safety investigations (radium poisoning, leaded gasoline).

Quote
In the early 1900s, the average American's medicine cabinet was a would-be poisoner's treasure chest. Deadly chemicals such as radioactive radium, thallium, potassium cyanide, and morphine lurked in health tonics, depilatory creams, teething medicine, and cleaning supplies. As industrial innovation increased, the tools of the murderer's trade multiplied, but the scientific knowledge to detect crime and the political will to prevent it lagged behind.

In 1918 New York City was on the brink of becoming the largest metropolis in the world, but it lacked a system for accurately recording deaths. Unnatural deaths were handled by the coroner, a position typically filled by corrupt and unqualified candidates as political payback. New York City's coroners were particularly notorious for taking kickbacks from funeral homes and changing death certificates for a price.

All this changed when Charles Norris, the scion of one of Philadelphia's wealthiest families, signed on to be New York's first scientifically trained medical examiner. Alexander Gettler, the son of poor immigrants, was Norris' extraordinarily driven and talented chief toxicologist. Against the opposition of corrupt politicians and powerful industrialists, Norris and Gettler redefined criminal investigation and led the first campaigns against the dangers of a new chemical age. Using chemistry to explain the causes of violent or suspicious deaths, Norris and Gettler championed a criminal justice system based on forensic science. Their work led to corporate and government regulations on chemicals used in workplaces and included in consumer products, and helped lay the groundwork for the creation of the Food and Drug Administration.

Actually think I might watch it again right now.

British command didn't kick John French out until the start of 1916 . Had he been under GQG's authority Joffre would've canned him two weeks into the war. Will check this one out later.
