OMG..If you follow me on Twitter (why don't you?), you'd know that I just stumbled upon this blogpost, and now I'm in deep. Cue the Netflix intervention.

So I have this tendency. It's so hard to explain, but if I find something that sparks any interest in me, I have to know everything. Or if I feel almost obligated to know something, I'll research it until I know it back and front. I can google one thing and get lost in Wikipedia pages for days. (I guess this is kind of similar as how I find a song I love, and then listen to every other one on the album until my head's spinning). So in that regard, I'm a sucker for documentaries.

I don't know what brought me here. A random looking into of the Devil Wears Prada Wiki page (yes, I get it, it's unreliable, but it gets the general point across), or a binge research hour on Anna Wintour...but either way, I'm so happy I found The September Issue. What could possibly be more interesting than the making of the most iconic and influential fashion magazine in the world? To me, absolutely nothing. (Not to mention, this movie introduced me to Grace Coddington. An icon of all icons).

And on the entire opposite side of the spectrum, I'm obsessed with this documentary, Big Easy Express. I didn't find this one on a rampage of information on three of my favorite bands, unfortunately. Instead, after watching this, I googled the heck out of it and its cast. Don't judge. Also, can we talk about how much I love Marcus Mumford and that he's married to Carrie Mulligan? I ship it.

Finding Carly's documentary recs was not good. I dashed over to Netflix and added Billy Cunningham New York, L'Amour Fou (on YSL..swoon), Anna Wintour: Bloomberg Game Changers, The Tents (NYFW #yes), and Ultrasuede: In Search of Halston to my instant queue. I can't say any one of them will be good, but I am definitely excited to find out.
