    I just finished my postgrad degree and am bored when not applying to jobs. Documentaries are my favourite things to watch and I'm not sure where to begin. The last ones that I watched were:

    Hell's Angel by Christopher Hitchens
    A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy
    Reggie Yates' Extreme series

    Well its quite graphic as it shows the real life of south London gangs and shows scenes such as someone concealing cocaine in his ********, I dont know if you will like it but it is fairly intense, so if you dont like that then you should probably not watch it.

    Oh! Now that you describe it, I think I saw an episode of that on TV last week. It was pretty good, although watching the gang member concealing the drugs was quite a sickening sight. Will probably watch the rest, as I didn't see the verdict for his trial.

    I used to watch WWE back in secondary school but am not a fan anymore. Depends on what the documentary is about.

    It's about the nWo, how it was created (the single most significant moment in wrestling history), past and current wrestler's thoughts on certain eras and generally how it changed the face of wrestling at the time. It also covers the thought process behind the unthinkable (at the time) turning Hulk Hogan heel (bad guy). Very interesting stuff if you were a fan back in the 90s or if you're just learning of them now and are interested in the history. I don't keep up with WWE really these days but I still enjoy watching the stuff I used to watch as a kid

    He's talented, no doubt. Bitter Lake seems pretty good as well. I think I might try those first.

    I was quite enthralled by the recent documentary on Scientology, 'Going Clear'; it's almost morbid seeing how such a huge and obvious cult can thrive within our society.
