Well, 25 isn't much. Should at least have a minimum of 30, as 1/day average.

But with the holidays coming up I'm guessing there are several that will slow down.
Or speed up since Christmas holidays = no work. At least that's the case for me. tehe

Three more docs from the Badmovies.org list. The first may not be politically, but it's certainly a well-intentioned if occasionally unintentionally comical film. The second is a pretty boring fear-mongering docudrama. The third though is probably the best of the bunch. Begins with an awesome Bonnie and Clyde spoof and includes some cool reenactment sequences, speeding through lights and so on.

31d. The Talking Car (1969) 16 mins (62 mins)

Okay; final batch of Badmovies.org documentary shorts. After this, I promise to go back to watch more 'normal' stuff. :innocent:

This batch wasn't too bad really. The Human Growth educational film was acting pretty well done despite some hammy acting, the LSD documentary is narrated by Sal Mineo and includes bits and pieces about fashions of the day (!) and The Talking Car is everything that it sounds: a loopy road safety video with talking cars (animated lips, eyebrows and moustaches).

Makes albajos a dull boy. :D

Sorry - I couldn't resist that one.

PS: Agreed about 25 - I had to go down that far to get a top 20 in the original post, so I was just continuing with that.

82. I'm a Stranger Here Myself (1975, USA)
An interesting snapshot of the mind of eccentric and talented director Nicholas Ray.

84. The Queers Are Here (2007, USA)

Spoiler: click to toggleShow
1. Zeitgeist: Addendum - pretty good until it went devolved at the end and said we should all join a New World Order, yet the calls to action at the end were very good.
2. The New Radical - https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/the-new-radical/
3. Ken Burns’ Mark Twain (2001) Part One 9/10 - covers his life until he finishes Huckleberry Finn (streaming on Kanopy)
4. Ken Burns’ Mark Twain (2001) Part Two 9/10 - the second part is sad as his life and zest for it spirals down in the depths of sorrow, however the documentary covers his whole life and career as an author and it’s amazing (streaming on Kanopy)
5. The Drugstore 6/10 - not as captivating compared to the other Joris Ivens films I’ve seen, but it was okay.
6. Captivated: The Trials of Pamela Smart 7/10 - More interesting than I was expecting. I was too young to really hear about the story when it came out, but the documentary brings a fresh perspective after the media circus that followed the killing of Pamela Smart’s husband.
7. Voyeur 6/10 - weird movie. It’s like the personification of Norman Bates, about the owner of a motel spying on people. Writer Gay Talese gets involved and propels this guy to the spotlight. Well, it was very interesting, but toward the end I wish they would have just cut it by a few minutes, because it got a little painful.
8. At Night I Fly (2011) - American prisons from a Swedish POV ended up being very mundane. The filmmaker may have been interested in cultural differences between Americans and between Americans and Swedish people, but really, it wasn’t that engaging or compelling enough.
9. What Happened in Vegas - Letterboxd review: https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/w ... -in-vegas/
10. What I Want My Words to Do to You: Voices from Inside a Women's Maximum Security Prison (2003) I wanted to see this after watching Captivated: The Trials of Pamela Smart.
11. Festival 7/10 - Pretty good, but I don’t feel that Murray Lerner is as good of a filmmaker as D.A. Pennebaker or Albert Maysles or other exciting documentarians from the time period. However, the supplements were good and showed his vision, which seemed cool.
Festival extras: Making Festival (27 mins)
Festival extras: When We Played Newport: Countering Culture Through Folk Music (31 mins.)
12. Nippon Sengoshi - Madamu onboro no Seikatsu 6/10
13. Murderball (2005)
14. Big Sonia 8/10 - I wanted to see this, but I had no idea how much it would affect me. It’s a great story of a holocaust survivor. It’s in theaters in Los Angeles now, but I also noticed it’s on Kanopy, a streaming service through some library systems.
15. Never Sleep Again - https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/n ... et-legacy/
16. Earth (2007)- no longer an official check, but worth checking out. James Earl Jones voice-over.
17. Along for the Ride (2016) - A great overview of the work of Dennis Hopper. Some of the lesser known films he acted in aren't talked about. His children aren't mentioned. It focuses more on his story as told by his right-hand man, Satya de la Manitou.
18. Z Channel: A Magnificent Obsession (2004) No longer an official check, but worth seeing for films and people you love if you are a movie lover.
19. Shadowman - https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/shadowman/
20. Cuba and the Cameraman (2017) A great documentary on Cuba filmed over several years.
21. The Rape of Recy Taylor 2017 - https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/t ... cy-taylor/
22. From the Ground Up (2017) - this movie explores athletes that eat plant-based foods, redefining traditions and people’s perceptions of strength, masculinity, etc.
23. Bud Greenspan's Athens 2004: Stories of Olympic Glory - On one hand, it was more interesting than I expected. But on the other, it seems to focus on some personal stories without giving an overview of everything that happened at the Olympics.
24. 4 Little Girls - https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/4-little-girls/
25. The Execution of Wanda Jean
26. The Loving Story - Nancy Buirski directed, my thoughts on the directed in another review: https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/t ... cy-taylor/
27. Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds (2016) I love Debbie & Carrie, but they seemed to think they were better than everyone else. Carrie thought it was harder for her mother to age and Todd Fisher (Debbie’s son) talked about marrying into Hollywood, because normal people wouldn’t understand. Love them, but I enjoyed the documentary RISKY DRINKING from Carrie.
28. Killing for Love - https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/das ... chen-2016/
29. Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory - Good, but depressing.
30. Twist of Faith - alright, but lackluster compared to other movies on the same topic (child abuse from those in positions of power in the Catholic Church). I felt sorry for the victims, but it wasn’t excellent filmmaking. I was shocked, because Kirby Dick’s other films I’ve seen are great.
31. Quest - nominated for a Spirit Award - alright film about a family in the Philadelphia area. They are faced with extraordinary challenges. I liked the family, but I again felt the filmmaking wasn’t top notch.
32. Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God - way better than Kirby Dick’s Twist of Faith. Alex Gibney is a master.
33. Roy Orbison and Friends: A Black and White Night (1988)
34. An Apology to Elephants - 40 mins. review on LB https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/a ... elephants/
35. Wormwood - Chapter 1: Suicide Revealed
36. Wormwood - Chapter 2: A Terrible Mistake
37. Wormwood - Chapter 3: The Forbidden Threshold
38. Wormwood - Chapter 4: Opening the Lid
39. Wormwood - Chapter 5: Honorable Men
40. Wormwood - Chapter 6: Remember Me - review of whole program: https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/wormwood/
41. If God Is Willing and da Creek Don't Rise - Episode One
42. If God Is Willing and da Creek Don't Rise - Episode Two - watched the two disc set. This is about the aftermath of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. It’s disturbing. There are several noteworthy things, however, not only was When the Levees Broke way better, but Spike Lee (superfluously) references his previous film on Hurricane Katrina enough to make you wonder if it was necessary.
43. Bill Frisell: A Portrait - Review: https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/b ... -portrait/
44. Methadonia (2005) - Great. One addict even talks about his stinky socks that almost made his girlfriend leave him. He gives this advice: “Ima tell you: if you want the President outta the White House, just throw a sock in there. His ass will run like hell. And he wouldn't come back.” We need to find this guy and get some of his socks.

Great reenactment footage but the guy comes across as a self-absorbed prick and I still don't get why all his friends were happy to risk jail time to aid him in his crazy quest. I think The Walk will make an interesting companion piece though, so I'll aim to watch that one over the next couple of days in between all these challenges.

Pretty good - but the radio host segments somewhat ruined it. I mean, those segments aside, this is pretty much an objective documentary without any commentary. The deluded adults and brainwashed kids simply speak for themselves and that's enough alone to be convincing. Imagine telling kids that Harry Potter would have been put to death were he alive a couple of hundred years ago! Shame about the radio sequences. This is almost a great film, and it certainly deserved the Oscar more than An Inconvenient Truth that year (though Deliver Us from Evil, a true objective documentary, is my favourite of the nominees).

This really is a great series but man, it's a tough watch. Will still try to finish this, the last episodes of The Story of Film and some short films by Les Blank during the challenge, I don't think I can take much more than that :P

@Simba63: If you could slow down so I could stay ahead of you, that's be great... :whistling:

PS: It is wicked hard not to comment on nearly every post in this thread. So many interesting docs... :turned:
Sadly, you probably will stay ahead of me as I'll be slowing down soon enough. :D

86. Belovy (1992, Russia)
A minimalist portrait of an impoverish Russian family.

87-90. The Fabric of the Cosmos (2011, USA)
A 4-part NOVA miniseries that attempts to distill heady concepts such as string theory and universal inflation into digestible chunks that the average person could understand. I found it informative but also felt like it was intentionally omitting a lot of info in an effort to dumb it down.

91. Into the Shark Bite (2010, USA)
A Shark Week doc that involves observing the shark's bite appropriately enough.

92a. Les Français vus par" Les Gaulois (1988, France)
Apparently wine and rugby are what France means to Werner Herzog.

92b. Before My Eyes (1989, India)
A serene, pretty view of the landscapes of Kashmir.

92c. The Story of a Village and a War (1979, Lebanon)
Some striking footage of the titular war but left me wanting more.

93. The Trail of Dracula (2013, USA)
An overview of Bram Stoker's Dracula and it's influence and adaptations in film.

94. A British Picture (1989, UK)
An autobiographical doc as eccentric as the filmmaker it represents.

95. 15 stron swiata (2014, Poland)
An interesting exploration of synthetic tape loops and how they play off various imagery to create unique experiences.

Spoiler: click to toggleShow
1. Zeitgeist: Addendum - pretty good until it went devolved at the end and said we should all join a New World Order, yet the calls to action at the end were very good.
2. The New Radical - https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/the-new-radical/
3. Ken Burns’ Mark Twain (2001) Part One 9/10 - covers his life until he finishes Huckleberry Finn (streaming on Kanopy)
4. Ken Burns’ Mark Twain (2001) Part Two 9/10 - the second part is sad as his life and zest for it spirals down in the depths of sorrow, however the documentary covers his whole life and career as an author and it’s amazing (streaming on Kanopy)
5. The Drugstore 6/10 - not as captivating compared to the other Joris Ivens films I’ve seen, but it was okay.
6. Captivated: The Trials of Pamela Smart 7/10 - More interesting than I was expecting. I was too young to really hear about the story when it came out, but the documentary brings a fresh perspective after the media circus that followed the killing of Pamela Smart’s husband.
7. Voyeur 6/10 - weird movie. It’s like the personification of Norman Bates, about the owner of a motel spying on people. Writer Gay Talese gets involved and propels this guy to the spotlight. Well, it was very interesting, but toward the end I wish they would have just cut it by a few minutes, because it got a little painful.
8. At Night I Fly (2011) - American prisons from a Swedish POV ended up being very mundane. The filmmaker may have been interested in cultural differences between Americans and between Americans and Swedish people, but really, it wasn’t that engaging or compelling enough.
9. What Happened in Vegas - Letterboxd review: https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/w ... -in-vegas/
10. What I Want My Words to Do to You: Voices from Inside a Women's Maximum Security Prison (2003) I wanted to see this after watching Captivated: The Trials of Pamela Smart.
11. Festival 7/10 - Pretty good, but I don’t feel that Murray Lerner is as good of a filmmaker as D.A. Pennebaker or Albert Maysles or other exciting documentarians from the time period. However, the supplements were good and showed his vision, which seemed cool.
Festival extras: Making Festival (27 mins)
Festival extras: When We Played Newport: Countering Culture Through Folk Music (31 mins.)
12. Nippon Sengoshi - Madamu onboro no Seikatsu 6/10
13. Murderball (2005)
14. Big Sonia 8/10 - I wanted to see this, but I had no idea how much it would affect me. It’s a great story of a holocaust survivor. It’s in theaters in Los Angeles now, but I also noticed it’s on Kanopy, a streaming service through some library systems.
15. Never Sleep Again - https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/n ... et-legacy/
16. Earth (2007)- no longer an official check, but worth checking out. James Earl Jones voice-over.
17. Along for the Ride (2016) - A great overview of the work of Dennis Hopper. Some of the lesser known films he acted in aren't talked about. His children aren't mentioned. It focuses more on his story as told by his right-hand man, Satya de la Manitou.
18. Z Channel: A Magnificent Obsession (2004) No longer an official check, but worth seeing for films and people you love if you are a movie lover.
19. Shadowman - https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/shadowman/
20. Cuba and the Cameraman (2017) A great documentary on Cuba filmed over several years.
21. The Rape of Recy Taylor 2017 - https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/t ... cy-taylor/
22. From the Ground Up (2017) - this movie explores athletes that eat plant-based foods, redefining traditions and people’s perceptions of strength, masculinity, etc.
23. Bud Greenspan's Athens 2004: Stories of Olympic Glory - On one hand, it was more interesting than I expected. But on the other, it seems to focus on some personal stories without giving an overview of everything that happened at the Olympics.

24. 4 Little Girls - https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/4-little-girls/
25. The Execution of Wanda Jean
26. The Loving Story - Nancy Buirski directed, my thoughts on the directed in another review: https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/t ... cy-taylor/
27. Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds (2016) I love Debbie & Carrie, but they seemed to think they were better than everyone else. Carrie thought it was harder for her mother to age and Todd Fisher (Debbie’s son) talked about marrying into Hollywood, because normal people wouldn’t understand. Love them, but I enjoyed the documentary RISKY DRINKING from Carrie.
28. Killing for Love - https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/das ... chen-2016/
29. Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory - Good, but depressing.
30. Twist of Faith - alright, but lackluster compared to other movies on the same topic (child abuse from those in positions of power in the Catholic Church). I felt sorry for the victims, but it wasn’t excellent filmmaking. I was shocked, because Kirby Dick’s other films I’ve seen are great.
31. Quest - nominated for a Spirit Award - alright film about a family in the Philadelphia area. They are faced with extraordinary challenges. I liked the family, but I again felt the filmmaking wasn’t top notch.
32. Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God - way better than Kirby Dick’s Twist of Faith. Alex Gibney is a master.
33. Roy Orbison and Friends: A Black and White Night (1988)
34. An Apology to Elephants - 40 mins. review on LB https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/a ... elephants/
35. Wormwood - Chapter 1: Suicide Revealed
36. Wormwood - Chapter 2: A Terrible Mistake
37. Wormwood - Chapter 3: The Forbidden Threshold
38. Wormwood - Chapter 4: Opening the Lid
39. Wormwood - Chapter 5: Honorable Men
40. Wormwood - Chapter 6: Remember Me - review of whole program: https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/wormwood/
41. If God Is Willing and da Creek Don't Rise - Episode One
42. If God Is Willing and da Creek Don't Rise - Episode Two - watched the two disc set. This is about the aftermath of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. It’s disturbing. There are several noteworthy things, however, not only was When the Levees Broke way better, but Spike Lee (superfluously) references his previous film on Hurricane Katrina enough to make you wonder if it was necessary.
43. Bill Frisell: A Portrait - Review: https://letterboxd.com/allisoncm/film/b ... -portrait/
44. Methadonia (2005) - Great. One addict even talks about his stinky socks that almost made his girlfriend leave him. He gives this advice: “Ima tell you: if you want the President outta the White House, just throw a sock in there. His ass will run like hell. And he wouldn't come back.” We need to find this guy and get some of his socks.
Could really expound on all of these, but I’m about to go to sleep.

24-29: Bloodlands (2014 true crime series)

"In this documentary series, the discovery of a gruesome crime scene in a remote area sets investigators on the trail of a killer."

But it really shows how police work un rural areas do a horrible job, believing every murder to be drug crime related or some other nonsense, when it is clear even for an untrained observer, who it is.
