I watched one in this series about the rivalry between the worlds 2 best Donkey Kong players. It was unintentionally hilarious and well worth a watch.

When the Levees Broke.
Grizzly Man.
Hearts and Minds.

I would like to give special mention to Burden of Dreams and Night and Fog. Both are f***ing brilliant, the latter is harrowing.

Too many to mention really but three I've seen recently that were superb

Man On Wire
The Mayor Of Sunset Strip
One about a bloke that lived with wild turkeys in Florida, dunno what it was called.

That Donkey Kong one looks good, might try and find a copy of that

I was just going to mention that. The King of Kong.

It is very good. The people involved (except the 'hero') have zero self insight. David Brent-esque.

The star trek 'fans' one is also worth a watch if you love a good cringe.

Also 'Into The Void.' It plays amost like a film it is that dramatic.
