    Hey all! I'm a big fan of moving documentaries that are attention-catching. The ones I recently have enjoyed are:

    Dear Zachary
    The Imposter
    Jiro Dreams of Sushi
    The Interrupters
    Exit through the Gift Shop
    Capturing the Friedmans

    What are some that you loved/were disturbed by/were moved by? What's on your list?

    Blackfish (film) Blackfish is a 2013 American documentary film directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite. It concerns Tilikum, an orca held by SeaWorld and the controversy over captive killer whales.

    I cried.
