I've been really digging the Netflix Instant Watch feature on the 360. Most of all, their impressive library of documentaries available on the service. I love documentaries but they never wind up being something I feel compelled to pick up from the video store or add to my Netflix Queue for shipping on disc. With Instant Watch, however, I can just add it in there and, when it inevitably strikes my fancy, give it a view.
Anyway, the other day, I watched an amazing documentary on the life of Hubert Selby Jr., author of "Last Exit to Brooklyn" and "Requiem for a Dream." That man lived a life the likes of which is almost impossible to comprehend. It's called "It'll Be Better Tomorrow" and I highly recommend you give it a view.
