some of the best and/or most interesting/revealing docs pretty much all of them are must see because they tell you a lot about how the human world really works.
also the more of them you watch, the more you start seeing the bigger picture & start fearing that it really is all interlinked with each other & done on purpose by .... ??
true, not all are factual & some should be taken with a 'bucket of salt' there is some truth in all of them, but what they really show in my honest opinion; No matter what you personally think, Money & Power rule the world.. president's are just puppets & people are expandable 'products'
the best thing one could do eventually is search the interweb for a man called William Engdahl, who is best in explaining the whole 'conspiracy-theory' in average joe language.

5. Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers (2006)
Not Rated | 75 min | Documentary, War
Robert Greenwald looks at war profiteering in Iraq by private contracting companies Halliburton, CACI, and KBR.
Private Contracting was supposed to make war "cheaper" for the Americans, but instead it did quite the contrary.. The amounts being spend are just mind-boggling, with no regard for human life (on either side) & only used for personal enrichment of a few . but that doesn't stop the US from still using them, especially since former company chiefs are now in the US government & vice versa

nothing shocking is revealed but still quite informative e.g. that the US gov. has a ban on all things that are made from the hemp plant (which doesn't produce weed) such as paper, cloth, rope, etc. (which in turn are all BETTER than their respective counterparts wood, cotton, sisal) also it show's how the weed is grown & how the trade works (in North America)
8. Home (I) (2009)
Not Rated | 120 min | Documentary, Drama, Family
With aerial footage from fifty-four countries, 'Home' is a depiction of how Earth's problems are all interlinked.
Amazing images but what puts me off is the continuous green moaning about how the human race will destroy the earth by pumping too much CO2 into the air & somehow every problem comes down to that, which just isn't true & gets kinda annoying while you watch..

111 min | Documentary
Controversial radio host Alex Jones presents his theory that the newly elected 44th president of The United States is merely a puppet in a conspiracy to loot the American public and orchestrate a totalitarian world government.
non of the change he promised seemed to result in good things for the US citizens, they who are so proud about their so called 'freedom' have, little by little (and sometimes in big steps), taken their freedom's from them, but yeah.. i don't wan't to stereotype, but it seems to me that as long as they can have their guns, they'll be happy to give up any other right without a second thought..

22. Superpower (2008)
PG-13 | 119 min | Documentary, History, War

23. Wikileaks: The Secret Life of a Superpower (2012– )
Star: Richard Bilton
A well made report about the release of the WikiLeaks US cables, which caused mass media-hysteria & riots in the world.
it's show's the impact of the cable release in the world & in the US itself, how it happened and how the US tries to strike back.
The cables themselves contain information about what American diplomats say, when they think the world will never know, who they trust, who they mock, what they want & how they get it. They show a Nation struggling to achieve it's goals, facing defiance around the world & locked into confrontations with old & new enemies.
The cables are quite revealing but for the average Joe there's just way too many of them (250k), so i'm thankful some people analyzed the lot to filter out & explain the important one's.
Also, on a private note, it's amazing to see how America kinda splits up into 2 camps, one thinks of J. Assange & B. Manning as whistle blower heroes & the other want's to personally execute them for being unpatriotic traitors.
24. Richard Hammond's Invisible Worlds (2010– )
