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
spot on. you look at the agnelli bloke, who I assumed was the owner, but he never came across as snide or interfering, just employed decent people and let them get on with it. of course you get jealous because we could have had that with decent owners. I'm not talking about trophies, just professionalism and transparency

I know. I realise its all going to be positive and Juve driven but you really get a sense of what its like to see how a major club is run.

It made me a bit jealous actually.

Re: Documentaries
yes Russ, mentioned it a few posts down. I agree, a great doc series about how a football club should be run

Re: Documentaries

Re: Documentaries
I was impressed with the Police chief, like all good bosses he fired shit up not down and yes the council were a disgrace

The response time for an emergency call was shocking you would think that alone would make the council pay the adequate funds but they don't care about the people they are supposed to represent

Re: Documentaries
67, yes it was scary the way they had to try and do the job so shorthanded, what was it, eight doing the night shift? those local councillors were a disgrace, in particular the fat old bag who looked like she was wearing fancy dress. i was really impressed with the police chief's speech at the end of the last episode, the term lions led by donkies was never more apt than in that city

I watched that last week. What struck me most was the amount of derelict, abandoned houses. The vote to pay the police enough money to do their job which was yes and then funds were taken from them. Poisoned water as well

No country is perfect but something very wrong when the richest country in the World cant fund the States to have an adequate police force

Re: Documentaries
just finished a brilliant doc series on netflix called FLINT TOWN. its about the police department in Flint, Michigan (at the time of filming ranked the poorest city in america) and also suffering from a contaminated water crisis. its a police department understaffed, overworked and struggling to get the job done while worrying about job security and hostility from the public. one of the better series I've watched

A thought provoking series if you ever wanted one.

The other night I saw probably the most harrowing documentary I have ever seen in "Holocaust, Night Will Fall" all about the filming done by the Allies as they liberated the camps. Harrowing doesn't even describe it.
