I am a big fan of Morgan Spurlock. I think his documentaary Supersize me was awesome, but I absolutely LOVED his series on the FX channel, 30 days. For three seasons the series challenged someone to walk in the shoes of an opposing view or lifestyle for 30 days. It was moving, controversial, and made you think about viewing life outside of your own bubble. So, when Current TV recently aired the mini series 50 Documentaries To See Before You Die, hosted by my favorite documentary film maker. I was in. So in, that I decided I wanted to see all of these films.

Here is the list. Many of these films I have seen already, but I will leave myself the option open to view them again. But regardless I am going to post reviews of each one I see here with links to those posts on the 50 documentaries permanent page (links to my pages at the top of my site). Join me. Watch the movies. Leave some comments.
