    Personally I think it must be Michael Moore`s "Bowling for Columbine"

    It can be both exciting and funny and it`s great entertainment.
    This is a film that leaves you with the feeling of have seeing something important

    And great clipping to

    I don't know if you've seen it in US but I've seen this great documentary called ''Baraka''. It talks about the world from its creation showing the parts of the world that are untouched by humans and they are representing ancient times, all the way to our modern age, showing crowded traffic and advanced technology. The film doesn't have any narration to it, it is up to you to understand it. It shows point of view from many civilizations, comparing the African tribes way of life to ie. modern American. It has much time lapse work, with moving camera. When I saw it I wished I had some better camera to go and shoot something like that. I strongly recommend it.

    Dogtown and Z-Boys - the editing alone captured the whole spirit of the time. One of many favorites.

    The 3 best that have not been mentioned: (For those who are political junkies or not.)

    A Perfect Candidate -Oliver North and Chuck Robb go bare knuckle and ultimatley show they both have feet of clay

    The War Room - Clinton v. Bush in 92, campaigns were never run the same after this for better or worse, Carville gives a speech to his minions at the end that will give even the most die hard conservative chills.

    Street Fight - The battle for Newark, New Jersey. I was moved to donate money to Corey Booker until I realized Sharpe James would not run again. Hard not to be cynical after watching this one.

    Ditto for "The War Room", along with ANYTHING else DA Pennebaker has done.
