http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/watch-online/

That has a huge list of documentary films and isn't too far out of date. It's where I first found Food, Inc. and most of the money flicks I could think of. (I've watched almost all of the money ones!)

Also, The Cure for Cancer

The Creature From Jekyl Island

The World According to Monsanto

Brazil

Brazil, a great movie about a rogue air-conditioner repair man. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088846/

Ohh we all forgot about "The

Ohh we all forgot about "The Magic Christian" by the Beatles! Remember the banker-types in the swimming pool?

Tucker speech:

"When I was a boy I used to, uh...I used to read all about Edison and the Wright brothers, Mr. Ford...they were my heroes. Rags to riches, that's not just the name of a book, that's what this country was all about. We invented the free enterprise system
where anybody, no matter who he was, where he came from,
what class he belonged to, if he came up with a better idea about anything, there's no limit to how far he could go.

I grew up a generation too late, I guess,
because now the way the system works, the crackpot who comes up with some crazy idea that everybody laughs at,
that later turns out to revolutionize the world,
he's squashed from above.

The bureaucrats would rather kill a new idea than let it
rock the boat. Today, Benjamin Franklin would be arrested for sailing a kite without a license.

It's true.

We're all puffed up with ourselves now 'cause we
invented the bomb. Dropped the...beat the daylights out of the Japanese, the Nazis.

But if big business closes the door on the little guy with a new idea,we're closing the door on progress and sabotaging everything we fought for, everything that
the country stands for.

We're going to find ourselves at the bottom of the heap, having no idea how we got there, buying radios and cars from our former enemies.

I don't believe that's going to happen. I can't believe it because...if I stop believing in the common horse sense of the American people, there'd be no way I could get out of bed in the morning."

The Singing Revolution

We need this right now, about Estonia freeing itself from Soviet Occupation.

Next to Harold and Maude, I would say

'Baghdad Cafe' is one of the most free and transformational films. Like Harold and Maude, it too has a sound track played so hauntingly by CCH Pounder that just brought tears to my eyes. Very moving.

oboy..never saw that one

oboy..never saw that one yet..maybe I can find it..:)

review: features some colored people, and machine people (who would make good servants of the NWO). Will they wake up and join wonderful humanity?

rating: matter of opinion ;-)

The Grand Inquisitor by Dostoevsky

How about a book and how about just one chapter from that book?

The Grand Inquisitor

Absolutely essential reading.

"If you’re into political activism, at least for Ron Paul if not for anyone else, I strongly recommend spending some time with iroots.org." - Tom Woods

Thank you for that chapter.

It was one of his books I never got around to. Wow you are right it is a great one!

Idiocracy

'Idiocracy' always seemed eerily prophetic...

Movie Guide For Enlighting Entertainment

There are a number of movies that throw light into darkness.
Darkness means absence of Light, no attention, no focus,= no
knowledge, because you gain knowledge by witnessing.

I will list 5 that have similar themes, but are different in
style, time and location.

1) "The International", starring Naomi Watts, was shown on
HBO last week.
2) "Wisdom", starring Demi Moore, girlish, 1986 movie.
3) "Scars of Dracula", starring Christopher Lee.
4) "Being There", starring Peter Sellers, Shirley Mclaine,
subtle humour.
5) "Conspiracy Theory", starring Mel Gibson, Julia Roberts.

Stories from the dark world.

Being There is really a good

Being There is really a good one. For personal freedom, I would really need to ad "Harold and Maude" with the Cat Stevens sound track.

We just watched 'Harold and Maude' the other night for the

upteenth time. I absolutely adore that film and I agree the Cat Stevens sound track totally dovetails the essence of the film.

It is one of the saddest and joyous of films I have ever seen.

"Being There" shows

something new on 2nd watch, is more hilarious,
you notice what you missed the 1st time.
The unknown sides of the chiefs, and insiders.

Peter Sellers had died before the release, I recall.
Shirley Mclaine later on became the leading light of
the New Age Spiritual Movement.

Yes. His last movie and, imo,

Yes. His last movie and, imo, his very best..
Ruth Gordon was so amazing in Harold and Maude. A story about a 17 year old boy and how an 80 year old woman taught him freedom. The 17 year old..think his name was Bud Cort..committed suicide not long after. He was in another really cool movie, too..but I forget the name now..

I am almost sixty and Harold

I am almost sixty and Harold and Maude remains one of my absolute favorites. Ruth Gordon and Bud Cort did a fantastic job. I have lost count of how many times my husband and I have watched it.

Dumb and Dumber.....

For those who have yet to see the light.
