I thought When The Levees Broke was amazing too. I'm a big Spike Lee fan so maybe I'm a little biased. I live in New Orleans and thought that it captured a lot of the thoughts and emotions I was dealing with after the storm. I know a few didn't care for it because it was either too focused on lower/middle class, New Orleans residents, or other reasons. I've only really seen it once when it originally aired and I don't think I could ever watch it again.its doesn't really fall under any of those categories, but Spike Lee's When The Levees Broke sheds incredible light on hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. It made me angry and it made me cry, just some of the images and stories are so frustrating and heartbreaking. Definitely one of the best documentaries I have ever seen.
Agreed. This is one of my favorite TV shows, always makes you think and keeps it understandable. Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson is a badass.I'd recommend The Universe series on the History channel (US station). 3 seasons have aired. I think now you can find all of the episodes on dvd or itunes.
That was upsetting. I felt so bad for those kids, all of that pressure and responsibility that their parents and pastors put on them. It's rather sick.I found Jesus Camp very upsetting too. It disgusted me.
It was and it was very thought provoking.Iheartstevemcqueen said:oh yeah Capturing the Friedman's thats a good one, sooooooooo uncomfortable.
