Documentary.

Completed documentary films in calendar year 2019:


  1. The Secret Rules of Modern Living: Algorithms (viewed on Netflix).
  2. Free Solo (purchased on Amazon Prime). I’ve been fascinated by climber Alex Honnold for a long, long time. Fascinating film.
  3. Mafia West: Vegas Baby (viewed on Amazon Prime). This is a 90s documentary, made largely of cheesy 70s and 80s news clips. But still weird to have known a few of these players, who were later politicians that I knew from even my short time in Nevada…
  4. Hitler’s Olympics (viewed on Netflix).
  5. Produced by George Martin (viewed on Amazon Prime). Still cannot believe THIS guy produced the Beatles. Would have loved to have had a brandy, or some tea, with him…
  6. The Vietnam War: A Film By Ken Burns and Lynn Novick (viewed on Netflix). Holy hell, this is intense, and hard to watch. But every citizen of the world needs to consume this, and seek to learn its lessons. And it will impact how you view the current problems we are facing.
  7. The Kids Are Alright (viewed on Amazon Prime).
  8. FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened (viewed on Netflix). Mark my words, something like this will happen again.
  9. Explosion: The War of 1812 (viewed on Amazon Prime). Always good to learn about the forgotten war.
