There was a 2006 Russian Documentary titled: Water. So good. I'll have to think about more I want to recommend. It's been a long time since I've watched anything that doesnt have Dora the Explorer or Daniel Tiger in it.

If you liked food inc. you should watch Earthlings as well as GMO OMG, Forks over Knives, FrackNation (I just watched this to inform myself since I'm a n00b about fracking) and of course there are so many other good ones but those are great for starters :) 

 

@rwmurrayVT watches lots of documentaries, maybe he can suggest a few :)

I don't watch many documentaries, but I think my favourite is probably 'TPB: AFK', a documentary on The Pirate Bay: http://watch.tpbafk.tv/

 

Followed up closely by 'Minecraft, The Story of Mojang': http://www.2playerpr...jects/minecraft

BBC Nine Muses Documentary

How K-pop groups are created, trained, what they go through, etc.

 

TPB AFK: The Pirate Bay Away From Keyboard

Someone mentioned TPB AFK. I loved that one. I haven't seen the Aaron Swartz movie yet but I intend to.

 

Interview with a Cannibal

I just saw the Vice video on Issei Sagawa, the cannibal, the other day.

Waltzing with Bashir is pretty good, it's about the massacre in Lebanon

I love Vice documentaries. One of my favorites is when they snuck into Russian labor camps where the miners were made to believe they were still in North Korea.

 

(Wait that documentary would actually be really relevant right now. )

Samsara, it's in the same style as Baraka and sort of expands on the themes found in that film. They are both non-verbal, visually intense and beautiful documentaries focusing on the human condition. Spiritual, hypnotic, provoking... I first watched Baraka and only just found Samsara. Previews don't do them justice. 

 

edit: Samsara is the cycle of death and rebirth. There are some weird parts. Not for kids.

Besides the ones mentioned in this thread, I personally liked The Woman Who Wasn't There. It draw the question of how far is too far when it comes to some things.
