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
I think chim mentioned it on here Storyville- Last men of Aleppo I think it was nominated for an Oscar.
I watched it on his reccommendation with my eldest.Deffinately not one for the faint hearted.
Its hard to believe there are poor,unfortunate people in a so called civilised world surviving like they are,it's a brutal insight into a city that's been flattened through constant bombing via jet fighter planes for one reason or another that I can't begin or want to understand.
The endings absolutely gut wrenching.

Re: Documentaries
Life and Death Row - the most captivating documentary series I have seen. Surprisingly it was first screened on BBC3 which is normally for the brain dead.

Re: Documentaries
That Madness in the Fast Lane is mental.

Also, those coppers should do a bit of exercise.

Re: Documentaries
watched the Chicago doc, NOW MORE THAN EVER. a band i'd always avoided because of the Cetera sung cheesy dogshit ballads. I was surprised to find they had more about them in the earlier years. a decent film

The defiant ones is absolutely brilliant. The montage of Tupac and Marilyn Manson had me pumped as fuck in bed, I was about to punch my bird around.

Gwen Stefani is a little beaut, I'd love to fuck her.

That may be because they're made for American TV and therefore likely to be peppered with adverts every 30 seconds.

The program makers then have to go through the whole process of reminding the viewers that it is actually a factual programme and not a subtle hint to go buy a supersized Big Mac & Coke.

Re: Documentaries
Anyone seen Madness in the Fast Lane? I'd previously never even heard of this.
Two blond Swedish identical twins repeatedly ran into oncoming traffic on the M6, (one getting hit by a articulated lorry) survived, then kicked off with OB on the motorway before having another go.... and that's just the beginning of this insane story.

Re: Documentaries
I tried watching some 'documentaries' on National Geographic and other similar 'documentary' channels.

FMOB they were shit! Every one of them could have been covered in 5 minutes but they stretch them out with repetitive bollocks over and over again to make it an hour long programme.

I mentioned The Defiant Ones on this thread a while back Alfs.

It's brilliant.

Re: Documentaries
I'm halfway through the four-part series 'The Defiant Ones'. It follows Dr Dre and Jimmy Iovine's careers from the beginning, culminating with one of the most unlikely pairings in the music business which turned them both into billionaires.

It's a riveting watch even if Hip Hop isn't your thing.

Just watched Facing Ali on Netflix
Pretty good obviously a lot of stuff most will have seen but definitely some good stories within it, George Chuvalos story pretty sad

Re: Documentaries
Be interesting to see that in conjunction with Burn motherfucker burn The story of racial division in LA from early days to present! To see the progress made in race relations, looks like it’s been a nightmare to be black in America
