Heima (2007)


Sigur Rós is back in their home country, touring every little small-town on this little island in the north. Seeing the amazing nature of Iceland presented by beautifully crafted images, it makes one understand how the band's haunting melodies are truly able to reflect the soul of the tiny volcanic island, and inspire music lovers all around the globe.

Not "just another WW2 doc."; this documentary takes you through the horrors of modern warfare presented by archival footage only. And it is all colorized! Something which makes the well known history-lesson appear more vivid, authentic, powerful and frightening than you could ever have imagined.

The most thought-provoking documentary I've watched. Anwar Congo is one of the never-punished mass murderers of the Indonesian killings in 1965 where more than one million people were slaughtered for allegedly being communists. In this doc Anwar is asked to reenact the many ways in which he murdered people, and we witness the most bizarre scenarios which seems to transcend everything we once knew about ethics and moral judgment.

Home video presenting the day-to-day struggle of 19-year old drug-addict Jani. A docu that puts nothing in between and really lets the audience feel the ever-present withdrawal symptoms and the dreams of a better tomorrow.

Very good choices sir, i'm currently watching the Steam of life, and most of these i have watched, but i think the list would be a lot better if you add a brief about each documentary.
