Jonestown: The Life and Death of People\'s Temple (2006)(Biography)

If you're not familiar with the story of Jim Jones's cult and the flabbergasting tragedy (an aching understatement) that was its finale, you should probably give this documentary a thorough watch. All too often we overlook or forget the unavoidable fact that we humans are possessed with a pressing, desperate, innate urge to find something or someone to believe in, until we are reminded in the most macabre way possible..most often and maddeningly, in the form of casualties. "Jonestown" serves as a very stark reinforcement of the truth that we are all simply attempting to locate meaning in what sometimes feels meaningless, no matter the sacrifices or the illusions that accompany our search.
