The Rape of Europa (2006)

Synopsis (possible Spoiler): The story of Nazi Germany’s plundering of Europe’s great works of art during World War II and Allied efforts to minimize the damage.

Another surprise as I didn’t expect much. But I have to admit I was glued to the screen the moment it started. In a sense having the Nazis steal the artwork was at the end the only way for these pieces to survive the war.

The Future Of Food (2004)

Picture 1.jpg

Synopsis (possible Spoiler): THE FUTURE OF FOOD offers an in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind the unlabeled, patented, genetically engineered foods that have quietly filled grocery store shelves for the past decade.

Admittedly, this is a one-sided documentary on our food sources and the food we eat. It still shows the disturbing reality of the foot markets in the world. Watch it, even if you don’t believe it all.

The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters (USA 2007)

Picture 3.jpg

Synopsis (possible Spoiler): Diehard video game fans compete to break World Records on classic arcade games.

Even though I was never a Donkey Kong fan, nor a very good player (I loved my Phoenix, thank you very much), this documentary was great. It transported me back into the days when playing video games meant to leave the house. And, how it was all about the technique, timing and reflexes. Even if you are not a old-school video gamer, this will still appeal to ‘normal’ people as well.
