"Don't fly with Easyjet or any other low-budget flightcompany"

Not a documentary, but he sums up some good arguments.

Somebody posted "The Seven Five" to Youtube. It's about the heavy police corruption that happen during the late 80's - early 90's, particularly in Brooklyn's 75th. I saw this a few months ago, and it's an excellent one if you enjoy slice of life, and true crime type stuff. The clips and pacing are excellent, and the interviews are great as well, some are actually quite funny.

If you liked Cocaine Cowboys, you'll like this one -

Another Pablo Escobar documentary - The Godfather of Cocaine, a Frontline PBS documentary that covers some of the same ground as the other, but from more of a U.S. perspective. It also has different interviews, and covers more of his early days -

Learn about the impact of automated trading systems on today's markets. While this documentary focuses on stocks, the same factors are at work in the Forex markets. High frequency, algorithmic trading programs work quickly and create huge volatility. This excellent documentary Money & Speed is from VPRO who have presented an excellent documentary which is required viewing for all traders.

Documentary on forensic science, and its fallibility. The part on finger printing is quite interesting, and a bit troublesome -

Access to medicines is a universal right. This documentary, with the testimonies of experts in health and legal issues, explains why India has become a world leader in the manufacture of generic drugs and follows the legal and social process of, The Gliveec Case, where Novartis took the Indian government to Court in a dispute over the granting of a patent for this drug which treats cancer. The judgment found in favour of the Indian Government earlier this year (2013).

This film documents the seven year legal battle, including first hand interviews with people involved in this case, which gives the documentary a unique relevance.

A documentary exploring the peculiar system of alcohol retail and distribution in Ontario.

The beverage alcohol system in Ontario is unique in the world. A government monopoly and a few private companies enjoy preferential access to the province's consumers. Meanwhile, about 300 Ontario breweries, wineries, and distillers face a number of bureaucratic and structural barriers that effectively shut them out of the market in Ontario. This film tries to explain the origins of the beverage alcohol system in Ontario, and what it means for producers and consumers in the province today.

The world is facing some huge problems. Thereís a lot of talk about how to solve them. But talk doesnít reduce pollution, or grow food, or heal the sick. That takes doing. This film is the story about a group of doers, the elegantly simple inventions they have made to change the lives of billions of people, and the unconventional billionaire spearheading the project.

After The Last Round. Current fighters express their fear of leaving the ring, while retired boxers and their families tell their tales of living with dementia pugilistica. A well done, thought provoking documentary. It's tremendously rough toward the end for even the most hardened fight fan.
