Holy crap. I spent this Saturday afternoon chowing down on vegetarian pizza and watching some pretty amazing documentaries. Serena was completely inspiring. As someone who doesn’t follow tennis, I wasn’t fully aware of Serena and her talent. Of course, I knew her as a phenomenal player, but I didn’t realize how completely she has changed the game. She is such an inspiration and the documentary follows her through her 2015 season where she attempts a history-making run to win her 22nd career grand slam.
I also watched Nas: Time is Illmatic, which was an absolute pleasure. I saw him speak a few years ago at a conference and I am, of course, a big fan of his music. I loved learning more about his childhood, his family and the life experiences that served as the backdrop to his music. A very well-done documentary.
Last night, we watched Food, Inc. We’re on a winning documentary streak. I can’t stop thinking about this film. The way we handle social services in our country is just such an embarrassment. We should do better.
I highly recommend all three of these docs. If you have Amazon Prime, they’re free. Prime for the win.
Let me know if you watch them or if you have any other recommendations.
