Watch Complete Documentary Films For Free (Featuring Super-Size Me)

Joerg, one of our read­ers, wrote us rather joy­ful­ly and declared: “Today I found the site of my dreams: Sup­pos­ed­ly most of the great­est new doc­u­men­taries can be watched online” and they’re “financed by ads.” The site is called Snag­Films, and indeed, it finds “the world‘s most com­pelling doc­u­men­taries, whether from estab­lished heavy­weights or first-time film­mak­ers, and mak[es] them avail­able to the wide audi­ence these titles deserve.” In exchange for mak­ing the films free, you do have to sit through some ads, but it is per­haps a small price to pay. Below we have post­ed Super Size Me, the 2004 doc­u­men­tary by Mor­gan Spur­lock, which offers some star­tling com­men­tary on the fast food indus­try. Oth­er notable titles include the 2004 rock doc­u­men­tary Dig!, Under Our Skin, and Run Granny Run. You can see their full col­lec­tion here.

NOTE: You can find this film in our col­lec­tion of free online movies.

    It’s crazy how the inter­net is just turn­ing into a slight­ly more inter­est­ing and inter­ac­tive form of tele­vi­sion. I just read an inter­est­ing blog at just about that. the guy was talk­ing about how while the inter­net has a lot of poten­tial to expand our hori­zons, it’s actu­al­ly mak­ing us dumb­er. you should check it out. And it’s true; with a tool like the inter­net, we should be an enlight­ened soci­ety, but we real­ly do seem to have got­ten dumb­er. Hell, real­i­ty TV is pop­u­lar, what does that say about us!

    I run anoth­er onilne doc­u­men­tary site — Online Doc­u­men­taries 4 U — you will find the newest and best sci­ence, athe­ist, his­to­ry and cul­tur­al doc­u­men­taries here!

    A lot of doc­u­men­tary sites are not very dis­cern­ing in the mate­r­i­al they post, but this is not the case with my site.

    My site is only a few months old, but already there are more than 100 qual­i­ty full-length doc­u­men­tary to watch…check it out!
