    Watched this yesterday, very interesting - particularly the no till farming section.

    I suppose Errol Morris is a good enough reason to postpone canceling my Netflix subscription.

    Fantastically done. I'm a believer that a good documentary either changes your mind, or leads you conflicted about which side of the story you want to be on. This one does a great job on the latter. You don't get to live in OR too long before you hear about the Rajneesh, but I had no idea.

    its absolutely hysterical. my wife (a decidedly non-cyclist) was laughing hysterically.

    recommend watching it without the kids.

    Watching various YT clips with Genesis P Orridge. TG origin stories are wild.

    Good lord. I'm so upset I'll never be able to watch this movie for the first time ever again. Simply amazing.

    You have to pay to watch the full version, but I actually enjoyed this on my flight today, pretty cool and in-depth with a lot of interesting side-stories.
