Ken Burns’ Mind-Blowing 18 Hour Documentary, Lab-Grown Meat, and Second Chances [Link Roundup]




  • The Vietnam War – it took me several months to work through this 18-hour gem, but it was worth every second. I don’t say this lightly, but it might be the best documentary ever made. The exhaustive interviews with both sides makes this truly unique. 10-15 years from now those who fought 50+ years ago might not be around to tell their stories. [PBS]
  • American Anarchist – this doc has bad reviews because it’s horribly biased, but the story is still interesting nonetheless. [Netflix]
  • Finding Vivian Maier – after researching American Anarchist, I came across the film maker’s first documentary. The quirky story of a nanny who has become a famous photographer after her death leaves more questions than answers. [Netflix]
  • Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond – holy f*** Jim Carrey is certifiably insane. [Netflix]
