A list of the documentaries i have watched (some may not be on IMDB, so there will be some missing. *DISCLAIMER* WHEN I SAY THAT I ENJOY THE DOCUMENTARY, I DO NOT ENJOY THE LOSS OR THE SADDNESS OR THE ACTUAL EVENTS, by enjoy i mean interesting and put together in such a way it was interesting. MANY of these subjects make me VERY UPSET, it is the learning (about the events and analysing and understanding ect. that i enjoy. neither do i feel influenced by the events to do something stupid. i simply want to learn and understand about these things, they are often interesting or sad and i want to be able to understand and learn them, they inspire me to want to document things myself and become a documentary maker myself. also these arent listed in any particular way. thank you

Not Rated | 102 min | Documentary, Crime, History
Documents the beliefs and experiences of Timothy McVeigh in the lead-up to his bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, which claimed 168 lives.
this documentary was amazing and very emotive, i love the way it is put together and how it takes you way back showing events that lead to mcveighs motives. the events are VERY WELL described and shown, in great detail and almost like mini documentaries within one big one. there wasn't one point in the documentary when i skipped (for something like it felt like it was dragging on). great documentary, will rewatch. 9/10
