The End of Poverty? (2008) asks if the true causes of poverty today stem from a deliberate orchestration since colonial times which has evolved into our modern system whereby wealthy nations exploit the poor.

American Tongues - A 1980's look at the accents that make up America, and their history. It's still common viewing in many sociology classes here in the States -

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x4jrdic .

Kingdom of Shadows - A look at the American and Mexican drug trade from both sides of the border. Decent watch, a tiny bit flat here and there -

Alternative link (good till mid October or so) -

Farewell, Etaoin Shrdlu. A look at the last day of hot lead type setting at the New York Times -

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFFxEjaMyu8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFFxEjaMyu8</a>.

Alternate link - http://www.vimeo.com/127605643 .

Surprisingly interesting look at a tough, and demanding job that has mostly vanished. For those wondering, here's a explanation of the title - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etaoin_shrdlu . I'd never heard of ETAOIN SHRDLU, and though perhaps it was going to be an aged, old country immigrant printer that was retiring with the job.

Harlem, Voices, Faces - Hard edged Swedish documentary about the Harlem of the early 1970's, and the social, economic, and cultural divides that plague it. It was almost banned from American PBS because of the frank look it took at everything, that wound up upsetting some -

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWATH6uPcf4" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWATH6uPcf4</a>.

In English, with a few minor Swedish parts and subtitles. Interesting for those that even want a look at "old" New York.

Can we please make this thread a sticky? I think the amount of views warrants a 4th addition to the General Topics Board.

Mr. Sears's Catalogue. A look at Sears, and how it revolutionized mail order in America (especially rural America). Indeed, the film also offers insights into the Rural American life of the early 20th century, and how certain business practices revolved and evolved around it. A nice quick watch -

Sad look at Schizophrenia in the 1980's -

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PM8MeTssmWM" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PM8MeTssmWM</a>.

------------------------

The View From Behind The Gun - A look at youth crime from the 70's. Very dark content for American prime time television of the 70's. Actually banned from a few stations for both the subject matter, and the language used by the subjects -

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fo2SgmpEGMw" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fo2SgmpEGMw</a>.

---------------------------

The Seven Five - I've linked this one before, it was one of my favorites of 2014. An insiders look at one of the largest police scandals of the late 80's, early 90's. Watch it quick if interested, as it usually gets pulled quick -

Who took Johnny - A look at one of the saddest kidnapping cases to happen in America. This one is a few cuts above standard true crime fare -


<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvkV2wx6Op4" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvkV2wx6Op4</a>.

Also this looks like it might be hilarious, but I can't find a full copy. Blast 'em, an early 1990's look at the paparazzi scene, including an odd, yet funny Madonna impersonater that double as a photog -

Film Noir buff Eddie Muller gives a talk on legendary crime/streetscape photog Arthur "Weegee" Fellig, and the art and design behind his photographs. Maybe of interest to some -

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5jdT2Kj_1E" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5jdT2Kj_1E</a>.


If you enjoyed that, you might also enjoy this old Masters of Photography documentary about Diane Arbus that was taken shortly after her death. She worked in the same field as Weegee did later in life. The first five minutes is boring and rough as they explain how the film was made, but it picks up rather well from there -

Assault in The Ring, HBO's look at one of the biggest scandals in boxing, the glove fixing case in the Resto - Collins fight. For many years this was a hard documentary to find -

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IMfFQ4xQFWE" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IMfFQ4xQFWE</a>.

CBS News's special report on the Harlem of 1959. Interesting look back at the time -

Unforgivable Blackness, Ken Burns's look at the flashy boxing champ Jack Johnson, and the trials and tribulations, both athletically and socially, he had to deal with in early 20th century America. Full documentary collected here -

http://www.veoh.com/watch/v116351797qSDE4XXE .

Tower . A look at the 1960 Charles Whitman Tower Shooting as told by the victims's perspective in a rather unique style. Wasn't sold on it at first, but it grew on me -
