Need the perfect documentary to watch high…

My Octopus Teacher
Yes to this!
The absolute best.
I missed you talking about it in another comment. Still, great for a rewatch
My dad and I just randomly put this on just to quickly test 4K on our TV, and we ended up watching the entire thing. Amazing.
jiro dreams of sushi
yeah it's wicked good
this. if you are a foodie OR like good photography OR good documentaries you gotta watch this
Seen “Fantastic Fungi” on Netflix yet?
Oh yeah. Got lost in that one.
I was totally going to suggest this one but you beat me to it. I’ve watched it like three times already. It is excellent!
Yeah, think I’m on my third time also
This one. I've watched it countless times.
Honeyland, it has nothing to do with murder, but it's the most beautiful documentary ever shot
And also have you ever seen my octopus teacher? Bc if you have and still stand by your comment then this must be a cinematic marvel.
I've been dying to see that one! I have to watch it on my next day off
Call off of work for this! Make it an event!! Invite some friends over, make some bagel bites, get the lighting right, and lose yourself in the octopus ether.
Damn sold! I'm watching that right now
Report back please!
Sure will, do the same if you watch honeyland
I could do beautiful. What streaming service we talking here?
Oh my keep calling me beautiful and I'll start to blus. You can watch it on huliu or apple TV, or if you are a pirate just download it
I really liked both of these flat earth documentaries (I don’t believe that the earth is flat, but I find these people fascinating)
“Behind the Curve” is more general overview with some if the key people in the movement and also follows some experiments to prove that the earth is flat.
“Rocketman: Mad Mike's Mission to Prove the Flat Earth” is more specific look at one guy who builds a prototype of a rocket (he really does!) to try and raise some sponsorship for a project that will take him to an altitude where he can take a photo or observe that the earth is not a sphere.
Both I’ve watched a couple times now and were enjoyable on a rewatch as well :)
HBO has a 6-part series into Qanon and 4chan called “Q: Into The Storm” and that was pretty good watch as well (and in final episode they pretty much uncover who Q actually is).
Watching Q now on your recommendation thank you this is just what I needed!
Any National Geographic documentary about animals. So insane when you’re high.
My Octopus teacher on Netflix is awesome too
Dude I wish I could experience that again for the first time. Nothing like it.
Not to respond to my own thread or anything but in an effort to share information, if you have not seen The Jinx on HBO yet you need to clear your schedule and watch it immediately.
The last min of that doc I was like 👁👄👁
A documentary about an underground tickling ring - “Tickled” - it’s a ride.
This is definitely the best post of Reddit. I have so many new documentaries to see now! I am obsessed with them.
Same birdie same!
Wild Wild Country - about a cult in rural Oregon
Where can I find this?
Kedi. It's not a mindfuck or anything, just a chill documentary about a bunch of cats in Istanbul. Not depressing like a lotta animal docs. Best movie ever if you ask me
Planet Earth is pretty good. In 4K and slow motion at points and the cinematography is really satisfying. As is the narration.
Leave it to Beavers Documentary. Never knew a Beavers life is so damn entertaining. And anything by Zefrank
Heyyy and that one's free with Amazon Prime Video!
No Better time then!!!
Zeitgeist! And if you find it, tell me where!
It think it's on Tubi?
That alien documentary on netflix is great
Is that the unclassified one? Or is there another?
Pink Floyd's "The Wall" (Movie). That's technically a documentary.
Anything with Carl Sagan.
Or you can just watch [this video](https://youtu.be/BZlRt05RY9Y).
Try Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii
I'm so fucking glad you asked this question, I have quite the educational week ahead of me
Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia will send you on a ride.. Amazon, but you have to buy it
The cooking show about edibles
Cosmos or anything space related. Podcast with Avi Loeb,
any Micheal Moore movie if you're into polictical documentarys
Valley Uprising, story of the the growth of rock climbing at Yosemite. Includes potheads and beautiful views. 10/10
finding atlantis on disney+ is so great to watch cuz of how dumb it is
“I Think We’re Alone Now” a documentary about a couple strange stalkers obsessed about Tiffany.
''One Day in September'' is a great thriller-documentary hybrid. the film was made pre 9-11 about the 1972 olympic games in Munich.
i'd also reccommend ''Tower''. Both are excellent documentaries, both about terror attacks, and the second one blends animation with real life footage and audio!
Bit late for you now, but Baraka is my go to
Check the one about black holes
Or the Mandelbrot set
fucking lit m8
One strange rock. Used to be 4K at Netflix, now its 1080p at Disney+
There is a documentary called "Fart" on the Roku.
For all mankind
Wild Wild Country on Netflix
There's a ton of crazy YouTube documentaries, I recommend stuff from Frederick Knudsen aka down the rabbit hole for well researched stuff on various topics, Blameitonjorge has some interesting lost media stuff, Maybe night mind if you're interested in horror series and ARGs.
Albert Lin has a bunch of cool stuff, but my favorite is **Lost Cities** on National Geographic. He uses a bunch of tech to scan ancient cities and digitally recreate what they used to look like.
Flavorful Origins on Netflix. Super fascinating + food porn
Worn Stories on Netflix. It was funny and gentle and I enjoyed the people. The Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum Heist documentary was great too.
“Why beauty matters” by roger scruton is a great documentary
Doc on the residents living under the NY Subway. The director, Marc Singer, got so deep into it that he ended up living with them for a bit. Even DJ Shadow approved of this Doc and let Singer use his music when he usually doesn't.
Have you seen Lemmino or Barely Sociable on yt?
I have not!
I'd recommend the series Drain the Oceans. It's not really mind fucking but it's still good and it's longer than a documentary.
‘Koyaanisqatsi’, ‘Samsara’, ‘Baraka’, I think there’s a couple other films in this vein. Not exactly documentaries, they’re sort of like photojournalistic powerhouses with no narration. Stunning, devastating, horizon-expanding visual operas that feel trippy when you’re stone cold sober.
Damn I hope you’re in sales!
No, but I’ll take that under advisement!
I used to watch Our Planet while high with my bro, it sometimes looked animated to me and the fact that the shots were so stunning and close made me believe it for some time :D
Dominion on Netflix
Some might not call it a documentary, but when you're high as shit it's the most documentary thing ever. Like, it becomes a documentary of your very own soul.
Oh wow you just made that sound irresistible!
Insert comment when you've watched it. And try not to turn it off when the baby chickens come on, or when the Japanese dancers start doing their terrifying dance.
Do you know the vice goat report? It's like 20mins
I do not. Where do I find it?
Ok I got it wrong, it's about donkeys not goats. But you really need to watch it when you're high again.
