Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work (2010)

A candid look into the real entertainment industry, this is a honest look into the life of an icon. Joan Rivers has become the joke and the face of plastic surgery, which she is very open about but this film shows what is behind the face. It’s tragically hilarious, and gets to the heart of what is important in life. In a business where you are never back at the height of your fame, there is a harsh reality when you’re only goal is unreachable. Some might not connect with the documentary film-making, but this film is hard-hitting, powerful and honestly quite heartbreaking. If anything, you will respect Joan Rivers for the legend she is.

Food Inc. (2009)

“I think it’s one of the most important battles for consumers to fight: the right to know what’s in their food, and how it was grown.”

This is one of the documentaries that has always stuck with me because it has that shock value, and it’s relevant for anyone and everyone. A must-see, tell everyone about it because this is the truth behind the food we eat film. It’s disgusting, disturbing and just plain wrong. It reveals the secrets of the food industry. The sad truth being that unhealthy fast food is simply cheaper and easier to consume. It makes you never want to eat a certain way again, it will change your mind and it will make you read the labels – it is a film that will make you care. It leaves you with one final statement to take to heart: ”people have got to start demanding good wholesome food. and we will deliver.”
