This is another good crime doc on Netflix. These cops were total gangsters.

There's nothing better than an Orangina after cheating death with Digger.

There was also a doc about a man who drove a nine inch nail through the head of his penis I'll try to source that for this thread.
Here you go…..

Not a documentary, but thoroughly enjoyed Tracks.

Let me preface this by saying: I don't like basketball. It's stupid. Why would anyone watch a game for 60 minutes when only the last 30 seconds matter (and it takes about 10 minutes real time to play). I've never made it through an entire game. Ever. I even walked out of a grizzlies game.

Having said that, "A courtship of rivals; Magic v. Bird" is one of the best sports documentaries I've seen. It's up there with the very best 30 in 30's (it's not one).

I have the utmost respect for both Magic Johnson [HTML_REMOVED] Larry Bird now. Larry Bird was especially bad ass.

I'd recommend the movie to all non basketball fans. It transcends the game. It's like 90 minutes long and I've watched it multiple times.

I really enjoyed this one too. But if you didn't skate in the 80's and / or 90's, I can see it not seeming relevant. It was a trip down memory lane for me!

Also enjoyed The Devil and Daniel Johnston.
