    The few episodes of Scientology with Leah Remini that I've seen were pretty interesting.

    This is fairly old, it may have already been mentioned, but "Confluence" is well worth a watch...

    Don't know if it's been mentioned yet but 'Shut Up Little Man' is a great one. It's on Vudu, ITunes and Amazon.

    ^^this is about a friend who is making a movie for his best friends baby to watch when he grows up. But his friend is killed by the baby's mother, he continues to document the events and the really surprising and tragic ending. Excellent documentary.

    Netflix- Dr. Feelgood.

    Awesome documentary. It's about opiate addiction and the one dr. who over prescribed to his patients. A real eyeopener.

    I have just watched the worst documentary ever. It's called The Overtaken. It's about kids heroin/opiate addictions. The thing is awful. These kids are unlikable and don't seem to take any personal blame because the general conscientious is that it's pot the gateway drugs problem. lol This was done by two mothers to show at schools to stop drug use, but there is no real horror stories or endings. I don't know how anyone would not do drugs after seeing this. I think it personifies the just say no - it doesn't apply to me, mentality of south Orange County's bubble of false bliss. I loved the few who said they didn't understand or know that Oxycontin and/or ecstasy could be bad for them. Mind you this was during the hey day for both of those drugs. The outcomes/deaths/tradgedies of the use of both of those were splashed all over the internet, social medias. and the news. We here saw a lot of od's and tragic events come during that time. I guess I just call bullshit on the I didn't know crap. I knew as a kid in the 1970's heroin and pills were bad. Sorry for the rant I just had to vent it out, it was better than banging my head against the wall.

    Did you watch that doc I recommended right above your post? Dr. Feelgood? I would def. rate it 5 stars out of 5 stars. It goes into the whole Oxy problem and how it all started. Most of the problems started with one doctor (he is on the doc) and he goes into a lot of details on why he did what he did. You'll either walk away understanding his position or you'll hate him and think he's a POS drug dealer.

    Gonna watch Blood into Wine documentary. Seems very interesting about Maynard James Keenan's Caduceus Cellars wine. Anyone who would name their vineyards Merkin, after a pubic wig, seems like an entertaining watch.

    Has anyone seen this?

    I will include a link, but I'm unsure if you can view it there unless you are Canadian, or at least have a vpn/proxy to pretend you are.

    Okay, so I'm going to recommend this with a large caveat; if you choose to watch it, be prepared that you are likely not only to get very angry, but if you choose to actually watch the footage included (they give you fair warning), you will not be able to get it out of your head. I actually watched this a few years ago, and I have not seen it since, but the images are burned into my brain. I have thought about it often since then, it's just mind boggling. I am horrified by the Canadian justice and prison system. Nothing much has changed since.

    This is an episode of the Canadian investigative documentary show 'The Fifth Estate'. It's about Ashley Smith, a 19 year old girl who died while in custody at a women's prison in Ontario. Horrifyingly, she was only 15 when she was sentenced to one month in a youth detention center for throwing a crab apple at a postman (seriously), which then stretched into almost four years because of behavioral issues while in custody. Then, she died, because prison officers were assholes and they sat there and watched her while she was obviously in serious distress, and did nothing.

    Her only problem was that she very clearly needed treatment for mental health issues, not being given more time and more segregation when she acted out, which only exacerbated her issues. They just treated her instead like a naughty child who was acting out, and a nuisance, when it was clear that she needed help, not discipline.

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=LnHxsjc2h8Y Another Canadian case. This is about Justin Bourque. June 4, 2014 he murdered 3 cops and shot 2 others, then took off, causing us to be put on lockdown. Schools were closed, malls were too. This all happened within a 15 minute drive to my house. I will warn u, I?m not sure if it?s because I know 1 of the cops personally or if it?s actually as sad as it sounds to me but the transmission between the officers and dispatch as they?re screaming for help is just hell to listen to. But. It?s an interesting case.

    "Long Shot" on Netflix is a short, powerful documentary that I hella enjoyed. Very, very good.
    Don't like what I have to say? I respect that. Now go fuck yourself.

    Web of Lies: Crime Scene Selfie. Yes it's a semi-corny one hour crime show, but those kids are now students of mine.

    Just got Diary of a Deadbeat the story of Jim Van Bebber. I've been wanting to see this since I heard they were making it.

    The Family I Had was really good but very sad.

    What screws us up most in life,is the picture in our heads of how it's supposed to be..

    I just watched the Snapped special of Ted Bundy where a few of the victims speak...hearing the victims was SO heart breaking. :( I recommend.
    It?s also the first doc I?ve ever watched where they ACTUALLY DONT make Ted Bundy out to be this ?God-Like? serial killer/Rapist.

    Also 13 Families was really good. About the families of the victims of Columbine. I cried through the entire thing.
