two documentary films i enjoyed on netflix streaming

This past week I watch two good documentary films on Netflix streaming. The first on the life of Harry Nilsson, the second on the making of The Plastic Ono Band - John's first solo album. Both films worth a look and are especially interesting because of the intersection of the lives of Nilsson, John and Ringo.

Nice!!! Ever since I canceled cable I've been really in to Netflix streaming. I really encourage you to check out "Rockers" (1977) - especially if you like reggae. The can be found on Netflix streaming as well.

It's a silly story - sort of a Jamaican style "Robin Hood" theme. However, all the actors are actual legendary reggae artists/musicians.

There are some really fun scenes where they are recording in some old school Jamaican studios. They got great sounds back then!

I will check out the two movies you recommend. I love Nillson's The Point!

I have Nilsson on my instant que! You should check out "fearless freaks" It's really good. Also, there's a roy orbison concert that is one of the best live concert video's i've seen!

The point is awesome. I had totally forgotten it until I saw the doc. I had a childhood flashback when I heard me and my arrow (im 43)

...not music but I just saw a documentary called "Steep". Absolutely jaw dropping, mind numbing.
