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?

Last men in Aleppo which is about the White Helmets who have volunteered to stay behind and help rescue people from the wreckage after Russia and Assad bomb them.

A tough, tough watch about stuff they can't or don't put on the news.

Fuck ISIS (obviously) but I CAN see why kids want to go and fight the Assad regime in Syria. If he's the west's ally I'd hate to see their enemies. Wicked, vile cunt.

There's some fantastic music in that doc about sugarman fillings

'I think of you' is a classic

Re: Documentaries
Not sure if it's been mentioned before and have no intention of going back to see, but I watched this on recommendation of a friend at the weekend. Great if you love music, great if you don't.

Searching for Sugarman

In the early 1970s, Sixto Rodriguez was a Detroit folksinger who had a short-lived recording career with only two well received but non-selling albums. Unknown to Rodriguez, his musical story continued in South Africa where he became a pop music icon and inspiration for generations. Long rumored there to be dead by suicide, a few fans in the 1990s decided to seek out the truth of their hero's fate. What follows is a bizarrely heartening story in which they found far more in their quest than they ever hoped, while a Detroit construction laborer discovered that his lost artistic dreams came true after all.

Thoroughly enjoyed Jim & Andy. I thought Steve Coogan was a bit weird when I saw an "I'm Alan Partridge" filmed and he stayed in character between takes. Carrey took going deep to a new level, especially when Kaufman's actual relatives got involved.

Two Netflix recommendations from me:

The Barkley Marathons - the story of a very eclectic ultra-marathon trail run in the woods of Tennessee involving a yellow barrier, plaid shirts and packs of unfiltered Camels.

Long Shot - a man's alibi involves being at a baseball game at the time of the crime. Can his defence (and Larry David) prove he was there?

Re: Documentaries
watched 'Jim & Andy : The Great Beyond'. its a doc about the making of Man On The Moon and features Jim Carey's own backstage footage of the shoot that hadn't been seen before now. its interesting watching him inhabit Kaufman's characters but it must have been a nightmare working with him as he took the method acting to extremes. interesting watch for film fans but it does get a bit pretentious at times

The Vietnam War 10 parter finished tonight... for me best series of its type since the World at War.... masterpiece from all involved


Agreed - miles better than anything ive seen - the content alone is unique. Id never heard the nixon/kissinger phone conversations before.

Also very telling that the same mistakes are still being made all over the world by US politicians..

Re: Documentaries
watched the Mick Rock documentary, SHOT. its not a bad film but he does get a bit pretentious in parts of it. can't deny his great work, though even he admits and shows where he nicked ideas from various older films and album covers. no doubt he's lived a fascinating life though and made friends with some genius musicians

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
