WHO Poll

Stranded 11:35 Sun Feb 12
Need something new to watch, so thought it was time for another of these. A couple to get things going.

Milius (2013) Feature length documentary about the man who gave us everything from “Feel lucky, punk?” to “I Love the smell of napalm in the morning” and much more besides. Scorsese, Coppola, Spielberg et al line up to pay tribute.


Youth Terror, the View From Behind the Gun (1978) ABC News documentary about youth crime in New York. One for fans of ’80 Blocks from Tiffany’s” etc.


And before anyone says it: Couple of clips from the 1977/78 Thames series “This Sporting Land” Sadly, the second one’s silent stock footage, but you can’t have everything. Anyone on here spot themseves?

Re: Documentaries
watched TAKE YOUR PILLS on netflix. a new doc about Adderall addiction in america, where a huge perecntage of the population can't function now without some sort of stimulant. not sure what type of message the director was aiming for? for me, it seemed like an advert for pill addiction

Abacus - Small enough to jail - tells the story of the only American mortgage bank that was taken to court over the 2008 financial crisis. A small family run business servicing the Chines community in New York. Very interesting

Re: Documentaries
Somebody suggested a while back an American Doc that was on iplayer about Vietnam.

Next to 'The World at War' it was the best thing I've seen. A complete history of the region and how bent and twisted the US government was during the whole affair. A tragic waste of thousands of men. Gripping stuff!

If only I could remember the fucking title!

Re: Documentaries
Yeah thats the one Sold...it was mental, and locals just acting as though its an evryday event....although i spose it is for them. The close up of the legs and the arms though....and cut off his cock for good measure!!! The investigator has got some bollocks though( unlike the victim ho ho) to do what he does.

Re: Documentaries
That the Foxy one medway?? I love teh way how they was trying to piece him together like some fucked up human torso jigsaw in the middle of the road !!! Like Foxy has said he's seen some stuff in the Special Forces that would scar his mind forever but what he saw in Mexico topped the lot !!

Re: Documentaries
Another vote for the Freddie Mills doc, thought it was superb. Thought the Mexican drugs doc was good aswell...the dismembered torso though...Kin hell!!

Also although not strictly a documentary, watched Tour de Pharmacy...a fake HBO documentary which i quite enjoyed. Quite amusing in places and had a cracking cast.

Re: Documentaries
Watched a two hour documentary on Doc History on Sky tonight called "Surviving D-Day". It concentrated on the American Omaha beach landings and Christ it's a miracle anyone survived let alone end up having a "successful" (if that's what you call it) mission.

Plenty of things I had never heard before about tactics etc from both sides and the cock ups or plain bad luck that cost so many Allied lives. Brave young men indeed, well worth a watch.

Re: Documentaries
he said it was the producers who got him to do the stunts and other shit, it wasn't his idea. the dark tourist bloke is much more laidback

Re: Documentaries
Came on here to mention that Romesh thing.

Very interesting stuff but imo he ruins it trying to be Karl Pilkington II.

Had never heard of him before seeing it so dunno if that's his act or whatever.

Those churches up the side of the mountains in Ethiopia look mindblowing, surprised they're so little known

I’ve watched the first 3 episodes of Dark Tourist. Very enjoyable with a likeable presenter.

The BBC show Misadventures of Romesh thingymejig is also a really good watch. If you like Dark Tourist, it’s well worth watching, and vice versa.
