I just watched the best music-related documentary I've ever seen:
http://www.netflix.com/WiPlayer?movieid=70267584&trkid=2734380

Muscle Shoals.

How fricken' badass is the music that came through that place. It's got me fired up about music like I haven't been in a long time. The story-telling about the people involved, the motivations, also lives up to the quality music. Duane Allman getting Wilson Picket to do a cover of a Beatles song when all the other session dudes were out to lunch? Aretha Franklin soul queen being backed by all whitey southern dudes who definitely had soul? Greg Allman talking about Duane messing up his elbow riding a horse across a street, giving him a bottle of Coricidin pills and a Taj Mahal record, and that inspiring the Southern Rock slide mastery of the Allman Brothers, Derek & the Dominoes, etc.

"Senna" a gripping documentary. Friends from Brazil told me it was a national tragedy when he died.
"Klitschko", another gem, about the boxing brothers from Ukraine.

For those of you who can laugh at high pressure blood sprays from severed body parts and fans of Japanese shock films, I can recommend Tokyo Gore Police, though I don't know how the Netflix version compares to the unrated cut I saw on the big screen.

They also have the unrated version of Dead Alive, perhaps the best zombie film ever made, by none other than Peter Jackson who went on to do films about hobbitsess & such.

Dead Alive is great.

Though not, I should add, a good date movie.

The Past, Check it out it's a real gem...

Sounds boring, right? Oddly enough, pulls you in as strong right away, very suspenseful.

OK guys I need new suggestions here.

Now that the darn video store kicked the bucket, I'm trapped in my studio for the next few months with only Netflix streaming for background noise and I'm getting totally jaded on the front page news. I've run through everything listed in this thread BTW...

...and not to seem ungrateful for any suggestions, but can you make sure it actually exists on Netflix? Of the last 30 suggestions I searched for, only 10 of them are available on streaming.

PS: I'll never get that hour and a half back that "High Line" sucked away, but it did redeem itself once the bear trap came into play.

PPS: If it's got subtitles or is endless hours of relationship angst, I'm out.

One of the drawbacks to Netflix is that most good shows are only available to stream for a short time. Actually most good shows/movies are not available at all except through their mail service.

WW2 in color has been a decent overview of the war so far.

Snowpiercer's a good one.

Damian Lewis was Dick Winters in Band of Brothers. He did a stellar job I thought (actually, that series is packed with quality). He's also in this TV series called "Life" that was killed off by the writer's strike years back, so it's only 2 seasons and it wraps up pretty neatly.

I didn't realize such a high percentage were temporary view only I guess.

Yeah- may have to try the mail service again. I shut it down because half of the discs were showing up damaged and would starting skipping or freezing part way into the show.... then you have to mail it back and wait for them to resend it.

*sigh* I know, these 1st world problems are most vexing.

Mined a number of early 20th C history shows in the past few weeks.

"The Galapagos Affair"- Totally fascinating piece of history with a murder mystery thrown in.

"The Roosevelts" mini series rocked.

"Prohibition" mini series

"Breaking the Maya Code"- Historic and OMG...shockingly alien,conspiracy and bigfoot free!!!

"Mrs Fischer's Murder Mysteries"- non fiction set in historical context. Pretty entertaining once I got into it. Sort of a naughty clever Agatha Cristie and the period costume aficionados will not be disappointed.

Just started watching "The Heavy Water War", a 7 part Norsk/Dansk/Brit series on the Nazis'
attempt to make a nuke. It is both factual and dramatic - highly recommend.

American Geniuses is good.
Talks about 20 century innovations and how they were developed.
Tesla vs. Edison, Curtiss vs. The Wright Brothers, Gates vs. Jobs, etc..
