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?

The Vietnam War is indeed excellent as is pretty much anything by Ken Burns particularly The Civil War and Prohibition,.

Re: Documentaries
the ultimate cheap shot. probably why it wasn't in the film, sucker punches or hitting from behind is/was frowned upon by these fellas

Re: Documentaries

Re: Documentaries
Agreed Miike.
That Mr.Big thing was mind blowing!I'm amazed the defendants didn't smell a rat it was so obviously coercion,badly executed coercion at that.They might have well sat there in full fucking uniform.

Re: Documentaries
sanfran, I agree. none of them are completely clear as to who's right and wrong. just amazed that shit like that 'Mr Big' tactic was allowed in any western country and the evidence permissible

Re: Documentaries
Watched that first episode of The Confession Tapes.

Hard to draw any conclusions to that case,everything was equally dodgy on both sides,imho.

Re: Documentaries
started watching THE CONFESSION TAPES on netflix. if you like Making A Murderer, you'll love this. each episode/s covers a specific case where the conviction rests on dubious confessions and police practice. the first case covered is over two episodes but explaining anything will only spoil it, another five cases are covered over a single episode for each. going on how good the first episodes are, I've no doubt they'll film more. it's just scary how fucked up the judicial system is over there

Re: Documentaries
watched 'ICE GUARDIANS' on netflix. a doc about NHL enforcers and why they do it. you don't have to be a fan of ice hockey, just of sport. a very good film featuring many tough characters. Billy Bonds is the closest thing I've seen in football to one of these fellas. very enjoyable

Re: Documentaries
Yeah the voice of the lead 'culprit' was very annoying to start with, but still very well done.

Re: Documentaries
I thought American Vandal was very funny. Overdone in a couple of places, but overall a great spoof.
