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.

Maybe I went into it with a tongue-in-cheek attitude and that saved it for me. Is it an informative documentary? Barely. But it's super entertaining when viewed as more of a "can you believe how batshit awesome people can be sometimes?" sort of documentary.

Basically, I went into that movie with the exact same level of expectation and enthusiasm as I do every time I come to RM. It was like two hours of watching a good GD thread.

A lot of good ones already mentioned. I'll add a couple.

- Let's Get Lost: A gorgeous and heartbreaking documentary on Chet Baker, a tragic figure in West Coast jazz.
- Fifi Howls from Happiness: One of the most inspiring and expertly crafted documentaries I've ever watched, about Iranian artist Bahman Mohassess.
- 20,000 Days on Earth: The new Nick Cave doc. Part concert film, part documentary, part stream-of-consciousness poetry, part rumination on the creative process, eschewing every traditional rock-doc trope. Very powerful film.

-Anvil! The Story of Anvil

I remember watching this, senior year of film school. We had a weekly screening that we were all obligated to attend every Saturday morning. I was usually late ('cause Saturday morning), so I'd often miss the introductory speech that preceded the film. So I walked in just as the movie was starting, without knowing anything about it. I remember being convinced for the first... I don't know, 45 minutes?... that it was a mockumentary a-la Spinal Tap. It starts out that absurd, but becomes very emotionally involving by the end. Really cool doc.

The Frontline docs that were just added to Netflix are awesome. League of Denial was fucking brutal. I should really stop watching the NFL.

Looking forward to this Scientology doc that has been the buzz of Sundance. Going Clear I believe it's called.

Yeah I'm pretty much pro-steroid now. If it's good enough for Hulk Hogan, it's good enough for me.
