Question by ♥totalgirl♥: Do you know any really good documentaries?
I want ones about the earth, science, history, the world, food, cultures, languages. I want documentaries you can learn from and not documentaries about celebrity's or famous people's life. If you can please tell me what the documentary is about when you list it. Thanks in advance.

The Jukai, Forest of Suicide in Japan.

Over 100 people go to the Jukai every year to commit suicide. Even the Yakuza clan send people there to collect the dead corpses.

    Planet Earth

    1. From Pole to Pole. The first episode illustrates a ‘journey’ around the globe and reveals the effect of gradual climatic change and seasonal transitions en route. During Antarctica’s winter, emperor penguins endure four months of darkness, with no food, in temperatures of ?70 °C (?94 °F). Meanwhile, as spring arrives in the Arctic, polar bear cubs take their first steps into a world of rapidly thawing ice.

    2.Mountains – This episode gives you a tour of some the many vast mountain ranges in the world, including the Andes and the Himalayas. It also shows the different animal species living in these mountainous environments, as well as footage of some of them doing things that have never been seen before.

    3. Fresh Water – Although only three percent of the Earth is fresh water, there is no lack of animals living in those particular habitats. Fresh water has shaped the Earth while carving gorges, valleys, and great waterfalls, and in this episode, we witness the unique presence of distinct animals such as crocodiles and otters.

    Secrets of the Titanic” This documentary tells the known and unknown stories of the infamous ship’s destruction. Produced in black and white, it’s narrative is chilling, particularly since viewers know what lies ahead for the Titanic’s passengers. “Secrets of the Titanic” is a great history documentary

    Liberty The American Revolution” This documentary film tells the tale of the American Revolution from its very beginnings to the last shot fired. Over six hours long, “Liberty! The American Revolution” is certainly thorough, but it is also a moving look at what drove a nation to overthrow its ruler.

    Starting from the opening scene My Cultural Divide questions the logic of the hardcore political activist, and wonders aloud whether ethical consuming actually does anything good for the workers behind the machines.

    He connects his politics with his humanity, and weaves together a story that is both thought provoking and touching.

    10 Top food Documentaries

    Since Food, Inc. is up for an Oscar on Sunday, it seems as good a time as any to compile a list of documentary food films worth watching.

    A recent post on favorite feature films that focus on food garnered a lot of comments — and sparked a movie mystery that remains unsolved. For cinematic sleuths, check out the comments by “can’t remember,” and see if you can put your finger on the name of the mystery flick.

    Let me tell you right now, I watch documentaries from Netflix/Zune/Best Buy like a mad fiend. I love them. There are a number you can watch that are very well done, and here are two I think you might like. One doesn’t fit the criteria you listed above, FYI, but it’s truly a remarkable work of art.

    That one is the “Paradise Lost” franchise. All three of them (the third is coming to Dvd August 14). They center around the murders of three young boys in woods down in Arkansas, and the trial that inevitably follows. The first one is remarkably well done, showing you unlimited access to the courtroom, private interviews, etc. The second is equally good, further explaining the issue, and the third spends about forty minutes giving you information from the first two films (remember, they were shot with long gaps in between; the gap between the second and third film was twelve years) as well as showing us “where the killers are now.”

    The other is one called “How to Live Forever,” explaining the subject of mortality and interviews centenarians who discuss how they believe they got to be over 100 years old. Absolutely wonderful films about different ethics, cultures, and ways of life. Now on Dvd.
