Movie Clip Wednesday - Best Documentary

Boxer is hosting a Movie Clip Wednesday Meme where everyone picks a clip from their favorite movies based on a weekly theme. This week's theme is BEST DOCUMENTARY. I started looking at top 10 lists for documentaries and realized - I don't watch many documentaries. Unless you consider shows on HBO such as Taxi Cab Confessions, Real Sex, Cathouse and Pornacopia to be legitimate documentaries - then I watch a lot of documentaries. And apparently, when a lot of people on the Internet think of documentaries, they think of Michael Moore. Don't get me started on this liberal propaganda claptrap machine. And I'll never forgive him for what he did to Charlton Heston in Bowling for Columbine. But I digress.

So after giving it some thought, I decided to go the rockumentary route and I chose 1970's Woodstock. This film has some of the greatest rock performances of all time, plus naked hippie chicks on acid. It also was one of the 1st movies to feature the two and three panel screen presentation, edited by a very young Martin Scorsese. One of my favorite scenes is the interview with the guy cleaning out the port-o-lets. I couldn't find that but found the next best scene - give me and F.

I also have a bonus clip that I came across a few years ago. Someone took the Joe Cocker classic A Little Help From My Friends and actually tries to interpret what Joe is trying to say - hysterical.

If you want to see more really good documentary movies, then head on over to Boxer's.

Good morning Buzz Kill,

That Joe Cocker clip is a hoot. Both are good choices for what turned out to be a pretty hard topic.

I agree with you on Michael Moore, I can't think of good thing to say about that left wing wac job.

Enjoy your clip day!

May I join the "Down With Michael Moore" fan club ?

Pam said...

Ooooh, fun, and totally appropriate entry! Would that not be the coolest to have been there.

Jenny said...

I know many say Woodstock was just a big stinky mud pit, but it defined an entire generation and I would have loved to be there. As for Joe Cocker; bwahahahahahahah. GREAT pick. Happy MCW.

Hehe, totally different idea, Buzz.
Last time I saw Joe performing must be 20 years ago, he still was a power machine. Mad Dogs and Englishmen is a nice album ...
