Some documentaries that make you think

I’ve been meaning to make note of some striking documentary films from the past couple of years. If this makes sense, one thing they have in common is their diversity of viewpoint. Another point is their uniqueness of viewpoint — all of them really make you think.

Sicko — Michael Moore’s exposé of U.S. healthcare — and an opportunity to see Moore’s work in a non-R-rated production.

Knocking — A rare non-biased look at an unpopular minority religion.

Expelled — Ben Stein’s controversial movie about Intelligent Design.

What Would Jesus Buy? — An inside look at Reverend Billy Talen, his Church of Stop Shopping, and their anti-consumerism message.
