    Helvetica

    It's about the font Helvetica. I saw it not too long ago and it was actually pretty interesting. It's about the background of it and how it's commonly used in signs and business logos all over the world now.

    Some good shit in hear already, cosign on Capturing The Friedmans, that movie was crazy. Hoop Dreams is Top 10 movies of all time for me too. Man On Wire, Food Inc., Cocaine Cowboys & Bigger Stonger & Faster are all must see movies too. Anyways heres some other ones you may have not have seen, all worth watching. Dear Zachary is one of the craziest and most depressing movies I ever seen. Paradise Lost is worth checking too, real interesting murder trial.

    Wouldn't American Splendor be a Biopic? Good nonetheless.

    The Thin Blue Line was pretty creative in it's story-telling. Such a strange story.

    Resolved is a good documentary about competitive debating in high school. Liked this one a lot.

    American Movie is a classic about a small-time director and his friend both from Wisconsin trying to get his horror film made. These two guys really cracked me up.

    No Direction Home:Bob Dylan was great, but too long.

    American Hardcore has got to be up there as one of my favorites. Was actually informative on the hardcore scene in the 80's and early 90's.

    Here's a top 100 list of Best documentaries of all time. Good list to go off of if you're not sure of which Docs to see.

    1) The Arrivals, that one's about Illuminatie, Israël and the 911 conspiracy, wether you believe it or not its interesting imo..

    2)Edgar Davids presents Street legends, about a couple of young street soccer players from Amsterdam and Rotterdam who tour the world to show that they are the best street soccer players, and they succesfully body bagg the entire planet in 3, including Brasil..

    3)Gangland, every episode is dope imo, my favourites are Zoe Pound, Vice Lords, and Tango Blast!
