For the DVD Queue of Your Choice

Kenny is an Australian mocumentary that I think works on a couple of levels — funny and touching, with a positive message.

Porta-loo deliveryman Kenny Smyth is probably one of the most underappreciated professionals on the planet. But without him, this much is true: There’d be a lot more crap to deal with. In a comedy of excremental proportions, Kenny makes his rounds with his dedicated Splashdown crew and ultimately finds himself at the mother of all waste management sites — the International Pumper and Cleaner Expo in Nashville.

Carrier is an actual documentary that aired on PBS last year, I believe.

Filmed during a six-month deployment to the Persian Gulf in support of ground troops, this in-depth documentary takes an insider’s tour of the U.S.S. Nimitz, one of America’s most storied aircraft carriers. Cameras follow Navy personnel as they perform their duties, navigate conflicts and ponder questions about patriotism and sacrifice, all against the backdrop of daily routines aboard one of the most lethal naval vessels ever constructed.
