Die-hard gamers compete to break world records on classic arcade games.
Votes: 32,324 | Gross: $0.68M

Probably the most famous boxing match in recent times gets it's due with a fascinating study of all it's facets and contexts. George Plimpton pushes it into something approaching greatness. A necessary argument to the somewhat messianic stature it affords Ali is worth reading in Ghosts In Manilla.

Mythology and belief in society today, presenting uncommon perspectives of common cultural issues.
This doc has inspired more debate as to it's veracity more than any other on this list and it could be considered conspiracy theory nonsense from start to finish. It's beyond my means to comprehend entirely what's truth and what's fiction, investigation online only yields people arguing back and forth the merits of each other's facts. What is true is that to my poorly educated mind it is a compelling piece of work, and should be taken with a pinch of salt.
