What is your favourite documentary? Mine is Michael Moore’s Bowling For Columbine. After the massacre at Columbine High School in 1999, Moore explores how and why young people have access to firearms. He also looks at violence world-wide and ponders why some countries are more dangerous than others. In one of many shocking scenes, Moore enters a bank in Michigan and discovers that if you make a deposit, you receive a free gun. In recent years, I have had several debates about firearms and how they are readily available. And even though my opposition have made valid points, usually regarding safety and home protection, I still can’t get my head around this seemingly constant need for guns. It is said that ‘guns don’t kill people, people kill people’. But I happen to think that it’s definitely a bit of both.

I like most documentaries. I watched one last night regarding how foul the city of Paris was 200 years ago. It was a hard one to watch due to Paris being so disgusting back then, but it was interesting. Paris was a cesspool.

Too many to list and I can't give an actual favourite. The last documentary I watched was called Weiner and it was about Anthony Weiner and his NYC Mayoral candidacy. Then it went into the sexting scandal and his wife was there throughout. For me a few things stood out...he gave unprecedented access to the camera guy, his wife was really really hot, he'd fuucked up in a big way and, If you watch it and look at her expressions on occasions, if the camera guy wasn't there she'd have smacked him stupid Can't recommend it enough...if I didn't know it was real I'd think it was some sort of political satire
