Forget just documentaries, this is one of the best movies ever! Why this isn't in the top ten I'll never know: it makes a real-life sports story accessible and heartbreaking, and explores life in the ghetto in a way never before attempted.

A touching and thrilling story of 2 boys who just want to play basketball but who are let down and used by all around them Remarkable film. Will have you laughing and crying within minutes of each other.


A lot of kids need to see this movie.

Amazing documentary about the boxing match between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman in Zaire. - tuponia

53America the Beautiful

Documentary by Darryl Roberts on America's perception of beauty. Extremely well done. - fearundercontrol


So good, and yet, so heartbreaking. I don't think I stopped crying through the whole thing.


One of the best movies/documentaries I've seen. It's so good everyone should watch it. I will never forget it!

56Monsters And Mysteries In America

I like this just as much as MonsterQuest. Another awesome documentary about unknown creatures and terrifying encounters. This is definitely another one of my favorite shows/documentaries.
