Cool news from Current TV. Morgan Spurlock (The Greatest Movie Ever Sold) is hosting a five-part series on the netlet looking at the history of the (presumably, U.S. made) documentary and which ones any good documentary watcher should see before they die.

I just requested the screener but so far, I know that the following are on Spurlock's list:

Roger & Me

The Thin Blue Line


Inside Job

You have to wait until August to see the series, but TV Eye wants to know which docs you would include on your list? Come on. Don't be shy.
