....including the 38 minute set from the 1970 Isle of Wight concert.

Highly, highly recommended.

At my theatre, we just showed "Heima" which follows the Icelandic band Sigur Ros as they do a fan tour of Iceland.  Visually, It was the most stunning film I have ever seen.

I also enjoyed Devil's Playground.  Jesus Camp and Hell House are two films about extreme religion in the US.

MOOG- about bob moog the man who invented the synthesizer as we know it. He talks about his connection with electronic circuitry and how he can hear the sound a circuit could produce just by feeling it.

We live in public- strange social experiment based on how connected the internet has made us all

Confessions of a superhero- follows the life of a guy who dresses up as superman everyday of his life

Helvetica- about the font helvetica, surprisingly interesting

Food inc.- about the food industry in america and how bad its gotten (This may make you not want to eat meat for awhile)

+1 for "Helvetica"

Other good docs include:

"Sketches of Frank Gehry"
About the nice-guy genius architect.

"Wordplay"  
Crossword puzzle doc, featuring the NY Times crossword editor Will Shortz , with some seriously good - that is, seriously fast -  players.

"Elliot Carter: A Labyrinth of Time"
Enlightening glimpses of the  straightforward, age-defying Carter discussing and rehearsing his very non-straightforward, complex music.

"Examined Life"
Engaging philosophy doc by Athens native Astra Taylor. One-on-one interviews with philosophers/ponderers on the meaning of life. Or the lack thereof.
