    Well that went some weird places!

    The documentary that sort of got me the most riled was The Art of the Steal. It really frustrated me. Kind of vaguely remember finding Devil’s Playground pretty amusing at the time, in a “better you than me” sorta way…

    Sandwiches You Will Like” It is about what it sounds like. That guy that played Wolfgang also was in the movie Parenthood.

    Bowling for Columbine because I was a 14-year-old entering high school. Or “Meet Your Meat” for obvious reasons.

    Being a big time wrestling fan, my pick is “Beyond The Mat”. Seeing Jake The Snake Roberts story broke my heart.

    Theremin: An Electronic Odyssey. I randomly picked it up in the mid 90s at my video rental, because I knew that theremins were the creepy instrument used in old sci-fi movies. The story of the guy that invented it ended up making me cry like a child.

    The Jamie Kennedy doc. Heckler. This one stuck with me because I was a fan of many of the people interviewed, and it was interesting to hear them speak on this subject.

    The Pixar Story. I’ve always been huge fan of cartoons/animation, so it didn’t take me long to become a fan of Pixar Studios and the movies they would bring our way. Not only did they have quality animation styles, these movies invoked heartfelt emotions that many other animated movies rarely seem to do, and that to me was amazing.

    The documentary was just so awesome and inspiring to watch. Pixar began as a dream and evolved into so much more. It was also very insightful to see Steve Jobs’ involvement in helping build Pixar into what it is today. Would definitely recommend anyone to watch it!

    Hoop Dreams, saw it when i was 11 (4 years after it first came out) really changed how i thought of potential star athletes in all sports. Showed the struggles they went through, and showed how, even if you were really good at the prep level it was so unlikely for you to make it professionally.
