I've watched countless WWII docs, too many to name here.

Lots of good ones named here already. A couple more to add:
Trinity and Beyond
Jiro Dreams of Sushi

Bill Cunningham New York is a lovely and heartbreaking little film.

If you want to see amateur filmmakers pretend to be in love/scared/shocked by obviously contrived and constructed events, go for it.

I thought it was insufferable. A bunch of ridiculous windbags droning on about their insane, bullshit theories. Ugh.

Team LV on Room 237. I'm a pretty big Shining fan and I thought it was damn near unwatchable. Particularly annoying were the cutscenes from other Kubrick films that had fucking nothing to do with what they were talking about.

You send your hair to a guy; you give that guy a sense of you, and your smells.

It was hilarious. My favorite was the Kubrick faked the moon landing theory. Just absolute horshit.

However, the movie did teach me a lot about why The Shining is such an unsettling film. Kubrick did some brilliant maneuvering, some expert psychological sleight of hand.
