Hey guys! There are many movies that mark our life for different reasons, but in this thread the idea is to share those documental that has made you to change the way you perceive the world.

There are two of these that came to mind: Zeitgeist and What the bleep!. I was both movies some years ago and they has been first steps for me to continue investigating in both topics.






What about you?

Cool adds Gab. To be honest I'm very curious of the world as well but my worst thing is that...I usually have a blank head when it comes to give examples...Sometimes I watch guys like David Ike or lately seen very interesting and sad as hell document about Polish Doctor who lives in U.S.A and provides non usual research about the cancer treatment. Try to find some movies about doctor Burzynski (Burzyński)...those made me think lately....

when I dated a vegan girl (remember my song "too young"? that one) she told me about a movie called "Earthlings".
This movie discusses how people are treating animals and shows drastic examples. It is not for the faint-hearted, but I highly recommend it.

I didn't watch the movie, I will. Are you Vegan now?

No, I'm not vegan, but I eat much less meat than before. I buy meat and dairy products in small supermarkets that specialize in selling food that was produced in their region. So I actually know which farm the meat and cheese come from. it is a farm about 25 km away from my place and I actually visited it once. The food is a bit more expensive though.
But let me warn you again, there are terrible scenes in that movie. It is free to watch, just check their website.

Thanks again. I'm a bit scared of what I will find there but it's always better to know the truth. I'll bookmark it.

I'm not sure I've watched any movie that I remember changing my view or mind on much really. Maybe some documentaries on which circumstances life can exist (like the fact that there are species of life on earth completely different from anything else, perhaps pointing to the fact that life could have existed TWICE on earth), and thus also changing my view on life in space (I still think there may be life in more planets than we think at first).

I don't remember the exact documentaries, but I actually believe it was something about life in the universe, which then also focused on the fact that there were these two branches of life on earth. One completely different from the one we know.

And the one that I could never stop myself from falling a sleep while watching and waking up in terror but arguably had the most impact on me
Koyaanisquatsi(Life Out Of Balance on a side note also features grand music by mr Philip Glass)
