    WHOLE..
    This is a doozy..Its about people obsessed with having one of their limbs amputated..

    WHOLE takes you into the world of people obsessed with becoming an amputee. Some are "wannabes" while others succeed in ridding themselves of a limb.

    They are healthy people like Kees, a Dutchman who pretends to be an amputee up to five times a day; Dan, an American who loves to hike and bike in the French Alps; and George, a man so desperate he shot off his leg with a shotgun.
    This courageous documentary reveals the impact the obsession has on loved ones, and also examines how medical professionals are dealing with the growing worldwide network of amputee wannabes. It dares to ask questions without obvious answers, questions about body image, cosmetic surgery, and the lengths people will go to in order to complete themselves.

    Into the abyss. It's not uplifting, it's a sad interesting story of a dysfunctional family.

    I love documentaries about truly fucked up people with weird obsessions.

    - I Think We're Alone Now, about the motley crue of potential murders who stalk 1980's pop star Tiffany to this day.
    - Grizzly Man, a repressed homosexual flees to the wilderness under the guise of protecting bears, only to be eaten by a bear.
    - Exit Through the Gift Shop, a man enamored with graffiti and street art decides to turn his passion into a payday despite having no artistic training whatsoever

    I'd like some good ones about UFO's or shadow governments that don't just come from Youtube. Dinosaurs, space, or theoretical science would be appreciated as well. Anything about madmen like Telsa. Or crazy cults like Heaven's Gate.

    Just rented a new one from iTunes last night: The Overnighters

    In the tiny town of Williston, North Dakota, tens of thousands of unemployed hopefuls show up with dreams of honest work and a big paycheck under the lure of the oil boom. However, busloads of newcomers chasing a broken American Dream step into the stark reality of slim work prospects and nowhere to sleep. The town lacks the infrastructure to house the overflow of migrants, even for those who do find gainful employment.


    A modern-day Grapes of Wrath, award-winning documentary The Overnighters engages and dramatizes a set of universal societal and economic themes: the promise and limits of re-invention, redemption and compassion, as well as the tension between the moral imperative to “love thy neighbor” and the resistance that one small community feels when confronted by a surging river of desperate, job-seeking strangers.

    Documentary photographer Zana Briski journeyed into Calcutta's underworld to photograph the city's prostitutes. In return, she offered to teach the prostitutes' children the basics of photography so that the kids could document their own lives on the streets of one of the world's poorest cities. The resulting photographs, often astonishing, were exhibited around the world; many of them are seen in this film, which won the Academy Award for best documentary feature in 2005.

    The King of Kong: Fistful of Dollars:

    Obsession and the pursuit of excellence push diehard gamers to break World Records on classic arcade games like Q*bert, Joust, Pac-Man, and Donkey Kong. The film follows a middle school science teacher as he battles a "hot sauce mogul" for the Guinness World Record on the arcade classic Donkey Kong.

    http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/king_of_kong/

    This was one of those docs where you think people can't still be possibly doing this in their 30's / 40's right? They are... It's a very eclectic group of people.
