For the Bible Tells Me So
About religion and gayness and the literal interpretation of the bible.
Surprisingly fair. You really get a sense from the interviews about how religious parents must feel when their kids come out. About the conflict between decades of ideology and the love for their kids.
Just caught this on BBC4 a few nights ago and I'm still thinking about it.
The title doesn't sound much but its Werner Herzog so I didn't hesitate to read a bit more about it before deciding to record it. Its actually the real-life story on which the Christian Bale film "Rescue Dawn" was based (which I recorded a few weeks earlier but still haven't seen yet).
Anyway, this documentary won't diappoint - I can't imagine anyone not being gripped by this. It is hugely entertaining, incredibly moving while the events it describes are almost unbelievable.

I THINK WE'RE ALONE NOW - 7/10 - Focuses on two very different Tiffany stalkers. One's a 50 year old Asperger's sufferer who thinks Tiffany's his best mate and the other's a 38 year old hermaphrodite who "genuinely loves" Tiffany (which, according to him, makes him 'not a stalker').
Very weird little insight into the lives of these characters. All done with no narration but it had a very Louis Theroux feel to it, nicely laying things out for the viewer to draw their own conclusions.

Many celebrity careers have been ruined by drugs but how many had the stupidity to record it? and then come back from it...
Steve-O most definitely had a couple of issues. Great doc tho, well worth a look if you find addiction interesting. Could anyone else recommend any other good docs, which cover similar issues. I remember seeing a Storyville doc a couple of years back about a high profile American news anchor who had a massive meth addiction, and filmed a lot of his life. Another really fascinating documentary. I can't remember the name of it though, sorry!
Edit. Found it this is a synopsis from the bbc here
