Netflix Instant: Movie and TV Picks- Another Documentary Edition!

Cold weather has blasted through Texas again. I'm not one for cold, windy weather, so I will be planted in front of my TV watching some Netflix. I picked three films this week from my favorite genre: documentaries! All three have been highly recommended to me, and now, I recommend them to you!

This film was just nominated for the 2014 Oscar for Best Documentary. It chronicles the ongoing Egyptian Revolution that began in 2011 in Tahrir Square. I'm excited to see a more in depth look at the struggle going on over there, and the young people who helped shape this revolution

This has been on my list of films to watch for a while. It follows the group CeaseFire in Chicago who put their lives at risk to interrupt crime in violent neighborhoods. 

This was recommended to me over a year ago. During Nazi occupation, they began to plunder many modern pieces of art for the Third Reich and Hitler's personal enjoyment. It's also narrated by Joan Allen.
