50 Docs List

I found this article and thought it would be interesting to go through and see how many I have seen. The ones that are bold I have seen and I am going to put a little something about them. The ones I haven’t seen are going in my Netflix queue…as long as they are on instant watch. How many of these have you seen???

50. Spellbound (2002)
49. Truth or Dare (1991)

31. Jesus Camp (2006)– Oh man. I can’t believe how much this documentary is like my childhood growing up in the church. This is such a good doc if you haven’t seen it.

20. Capturing the Friedmans (2003)
