    I love a good doc. And I haven’t seen any of these!
    A few I like:
    Bhutto (saw it at Sundance a few years ago. Fascinating.)
    Waiting for Superman (Sundance again. Bill Gates sat right behind me! So good)
    The Pixar Story
    Frozen Planet (not an official doc, but super good)
    The Dust Bowl
    Exit Through the Gift Shop (Banksy is crazy, but super talented)
    The September Issue (addictive)
    My favorite will always be Grey Gardens, but I know you’ve already seen that!

      Oooh! All of those sound so good! I’ve seen the September issue and LOVED it so much. Have you seen Bill Cunningham New York? I think you would lie it as well. It’s not on instawatch anymore, but I think you can have the dvd sent to you. And, yes, of course I love Grey Gardens!
