Fahrenheit 9/11
Sicko

Bowling for Columbine is better than either of these.

I agree, but it was already on the list :)

Deliver Us From Evil
Taxi to the Dark Side

These will likely be my top 2, and not even really close.

Bright Leaves - Ross McElwee, 2003.

Expect a write up of this one in coming days. I'm not certain, but I suspect it's pretty great. Not sure how available it is.

Wordplay was really fun.


I'll mention Grizzly Man, supposing it's eligible.

I liked Wordplay, but it won't make my list.

Spellbound, on the other hand, is delightful and will be on it.

If we had a best quotes category "Do I sound like a musical robot?" would be on mine.

Waltz with Bashir.

I also just saw My Winnipeg and it totally belongs on the list, its only crime is being stylistically different and unique.  Put it back on the list and people can decide if they want to vote or not.
I’ve lied to men who wear belts. I’ve lied to men who wear suspenders. But I’d never be so stupid as to lie to a man who wears both a belt and suspenders.
