Best Documentaries of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Sicko

Excellent topic, good film making, genuine dilemma and truth has been exposed in this documentary. Daring and bold attempt by Michael Moore.

Funny and educational. Michael. Moor is a genius

2 Super Size Me

It really opens the eyes of the viewer."

3 Truth Or Dare?
4 Bowling For Columbine

Blaming Marilyn Manson didn't solve anything, did it? Marilyn Manson just sang his music. Eric and Dylan did what they did because they fed each other to do it; they encouraged each other to go through with the massacre.
Marilyn Manson is a highly intelligent and talented musician who represents individualism. He had no part whatsoever in Columbine.
Listen to "The Nobodies" by Marilyn Manson, which he made afterwards regarding the entire situation.

Marilyn Manson isn't a bad person, but he's blamed for so much. He doesn't deserve all the hate he gets. And despite his music, he's very nice and very smart, and his music does have meaning. It's just misunderstood. Personally, I love Marilyn Manson. I have a lot of respect for him.

This represented Marilyn Manson the way he should be. He didn't do anything, and in the end they even found out that the killers didn't even like him.

5 The Thin Blue Line
6 Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmakers Apocalypse

One of totally the best documentaries of all time, but unfortunately list is missing some essentials. I wouldn't focus on Michael Moore personally. He is good but how to say it, maybe pretentious a bit.

7 The Decline of Western Civilization
8 Walking with Dinosaurs

I loved this series as a kid and still do! It needs to be put back on the air! It was astounding!

This should be on top, even though it is a series its still pretty good

9 The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert McNamara
10 When We Were Kings

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

The Newcomers

? The Kingmaker
The Contenders
11 Harlan County USA
12 World War II in Colour
13 Grizzly Man
14 Dont Look Back
15 Salesman
16 Roger & Me
17 Ken Burns' The Civil War
18 Planet Earth
19 Capturing the Friedmans

This family goes through every imaginable emotion, leaving none aforementioned.
How a well-to-do american family can be destroyed by lies for the justice system of America. Nobody is safe!

20 Hoop Dreams

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.

21 Grey Gardens

Loved this movie. Very well made and acted!

22 Woodstock - 3 Days of Peace & Music

The filiming & music is so good I have watched this endless times.
