I'm not against documentaries...

To be fair, I do love music documentaries, like NO DIRECTION HOME, HEART OF GOLD, and THE FUTURE IS UNWRITTEN. I own all three and several more on Bob Dylan and John Lennon. Anyone else stoked for Scorsese's George Harrison documentary LIVING IN THE MATERIAL WORLD? When is that gonna be on DVD or Netflix?

I also dig documentaries about people I'm interested in (STANLEY KUBRICK: A LIFE IN PICTURES–it's the tops) and political documentaries (THE CORPORATION, INSIDE JOB, etc.). So I'm not advocating against them, even if I seldom watch them. The only thing I don't like is personal documentaries like BROTHER BORN AGAIN that seem unnecessary or should not be publicized. They annoy me.

P.S. To Jerzy, funny post as usual. "Denouncing intelligence as an obstacle to faith was particularly heinous, that it happened more than once was terrible." The fervent atheist in me was seething at these moments as well, but that's a conversation for a whole other time and place.


  1. Are you a fan of The Flaming Lips? If so, you should definitely check out The Fearless Freaks.

    1. I'm a casual fan, but I'll definitely look into that. Thanks!

    2. Fearless Freaks rules. I thought Jeff converted to Christianity after he almost committed suicide after arguing about Passion of the Christ. I guess he's back in the atheist peanut gallery with Chris and Bill Maher.
