I've seen two fantastic music docs over the past while. Really well worth catching if you can. One even makes Lars Ulrich seem like a normal, nice dude.

This one was pretty insane!

Dirty Wars

Investigative journalist Jeremy Scahill travels to Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia, and other countries where the United States has taken military action. In Afghanistan, he investigates a night raid conducted by the Joint Special Operations Command. He also investigates the U.S. assassination of Anwar al-Awlaki, a United States Citizen. The documentary also shares testimonies from CIA agents, Special Forces operators, military generals, and warlords backed by the United States

We're Not Broke

WE’RE NOT BROKE tells the story of U.S. corporations dodging billions of dollars in income tax, and how seven fed-up Americans take their frustration to the streets…and vow to make the corporations pay their fair share.

Isn't there some irony in the fact that you can buy the film on iTunes??

The recent documentary made on the reunion of The Stone Roses. Pretty good movie I thought.
