    CIA America's Secret Warriors
    The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is a civilian foreign intelligence service of the United States federal government, tasked with gathering, processing, and analyzing national security information from around the world, primarily through the use of human intelligence (HUMINT). As one of the principal members of the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC), the CIA reports to the Director of National Intelligence and is primarily focused on providing intelligence for the President and Cabinet.

    "I did not really get into this documentary. I expected something about a conspiracy and I know that the CIA is like other intelligence agencies world wide. I don't call each intelligence agency a conspiracy. I probably was not the best audience for this."

    #2Zeitgeist Addendum

    Zeitgeist Addendum

    The film begins and ends with excerpts from a speech by Jiddu Krishnamurti. The remainder of the film is narrated by Peter Joseph and divided into four parts, which are prefaced by on-screen quotations from Krishnamurti, John Adams, Bernard Lietaer, and Thomas Paine, respectively.

    Part I covers the process of fractional-reserve banking as illustrated in Modern Money Mechanics, by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. The film suggests that society is manipulated into economic slavery through debt-based monetary policies by requiring individuals to submit for employment in order to pay off their debt.

    Part II has an interview with John Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hitman, who says he was involved in the subjugation of Latin American economies by multinational corporations and the United States government

    Part III introduces futurist Jacque Fresco and The Venus Project and asserts a need to move away from current socioeconomic paradigms.

    Part IV suggests that the primary reason for what the film sees as society's social values ("warfare, corruption, oppressive laws, social stratification, irrelevant superstitions, environmental destruction, and a despotic, socially indifferent, profit-oriented ruling class") is a collective ignorance of "the emergent and symbiotic aspects of natural law".

    "i hate to be preached to. even if i agree with the sermon, (and in this case i do), i hate it. when it's the interviewee - fine. we've established that this is a person of substance. and what he's talking about really is serious. but when it's the narrator, it's off putting. that said, it's the one of the best conspiracy doc's out there"

    "I try and keep an open mind about things I see online, and not trust things I see 100%. But in doing so, I also like to watch a lot of different kinds of things, from many different viewpoints. I was recommended this film a few years ago by a friend, and it is a really fascinating watch. It tackles a lot of the details of our economic system, our social systems, and just societal problems at large, in a really unique way. I think that even if you don't agree with what it says, it's important to watch big cultural pieces like this, so that you can see how other people are thinking about the issues."

DID YOU KNOW?

Watching a 30-minute documentary on a laptop feels longer than watching a 60-minute documentary film on a flat screen, said Edward J. Delaney, a journalist, author, and a filmmaker. Delaney attests to the dawning of a new age of micro-documentary filmmaking. This trend leaves filmmakers no choice but to adapt and produce contents that are shorter, more straightforward, and more engaging to catch the audience’s short attention span. A significant milestone in the history of filmmaking is the invention of cameras by the Lumiere brothers in 1895 and today, we call the first films as “Slice of life” and the coming together of theoretical essentials of documentaries but what really catalyzed the creation of these films? According to Bill Nicholas, it came out in response to fiction as this kind of filmmaking aims to touch the nonfiction and capture the reality—no wonder it is considered as a powerful means of conveying social messages to the world as they usually reflect a country’s culture. Perhaps another reason to engage oneself in these films is its ability to provide a great avenue for intelligent conversations that stimulate critical thinking. Metacritic published a list of documentary films that scored the highest, with Best Keep Secret landing on the first spot. From the invention of the first photographs of horses in motion, the industry has undergone so many developments, resulting to different film genres, styles, and cinematography.

    "I've always wanted to know the full story of Princess Diana's death from different perspectives and after watching this documentary, I personally think that her death wasn't a mere accident and it was done with dirty hands. This makes you really think of all the info the media instills in our heads! Not everything we hear or see is the absolute truth."

    "It is a well done documentary, but I think it is going to depend on how open you are to 9/11 being a conspiracy as to how much you will or will not enjoy this. I found it thought provoking, if not entirely convincing. It definitely makes you think that something was going on surround 9/11 conspiracy wise. Whether or not this hits the nail on the head is debatable."

    #7Hitler Of The Andes

    Hitler Of The Andes

    This is the story of the Hitler survival myth and how the confusion that surrounded his death in a Berlin bunker led to rumours that he escaped. Eisenhower believed he was still alive saying “we have been unable to unearth one tangible piece of evidence of Hitler’s death.” Newly unearthed FBI files reveal thousands of alleged Hitler sightings from Ireland to Venezuela. With rumours of his escape persisting for decades, and growing evidence that Nazis were hiding out in the jungles and remote corners of Latin America, today the alleged survival of the Fuhrer remains one of the worlds most popular and treasured myths.

    "I usually laugh conspiracies off and think they're BS. But this one really had some credible evidence, and now I'm starting to think that Hitler might actually be alive. Now I have some research to do...."
