Election day is coming up in Sweden so on a whim I downloaded and watched a documentary about former socialist prime minister Olof Palme. I recommend it for anyone interested in Swedish culture and politics around the 70's and/or want to learn more about a skilled politician.
It's available with english subtitles.

Al-Khalili's "Chemistry - A Volatile History" are my favorite science docs outside of the original Cosmos. It's really engaging.

It's exactly what it sounds like, a history of chemistry. It goes light on effects and aerial photography so common in scidocs, and it favors playing with materials and interviews.

I watched Hearts of Darkness recently, I really liked it. I like films wherein the making of the film is equally or more important than the film itself. It's why I like Jodorowsky so much. It seems like he doesn't really make movies, he just creates events for the crew of his film. Like, he's trying to craft these adventures for people to experience and the fact that at the end of it there's a film is purely incidental. I like that.

Jodorowsky's Dune

Jodorowsky,high on pot and his film-making success amongst french proto-hipsters, decides to take on Dune for his next film-making project. I'm pretty sure I could make this film work and not suck if Jodorowsky and dali had nothing to do with it and Giger was still alive. Seriously Jodorowsky brought nothing to the table except fail on any project. Jodorowsky needs to be slapped around; anyone praising him is an enabler in his psychosis of delusion of grandeur.

While I agree his self-assurance does put me off a bit, the talent of the cast cannot be denied. Moebius Is a genius after all. Who cares if some guy from Chile wants to get high as fuck & trip with Dali, Mick Jagger & Orson Welles? Not everybody can do drugs well into old age without getting a little off. Spiritual warriors aside, I would have liked to see a Heavy Metal rendition of the film with Moebius still alive.

I had to double check if this was some sort of bizarro thread, like "diss your favourite movie", or something like that. But it wasn't!

I'm baffled that someone can write about Jodorowsky's Dune like that. For me it was both really interesting and insightful. Old Jodo goes on about his spiritual warriors, and while he claims not to be bitter, he clearly is. And who can blame him? Even if the movie had been a massive flop, it would have still been really interesting.

I wish there was more people like him. And I mean people as human beings, not just as artists or filmmakers.

Definitely recommend this, fantastic doco. I've watched a few good ones recently.

>The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia
follows the fairly notorious extended family of Jesco White, the last outlaw tap dancer. Lots insanity and hard drugs. Mostly funny but it's definitely got a couple of sad moments.
>The Fog of War
Essentially just a long interview with Robert McNamara, the US secretary of defense during the vietnam war. Heavy stuff, and really interesting
>Beyond the Mat
If there are any wrestling fans on here that haven't seen this, give it a watch. In fact, watch it even if you aren't into wrestling. I've got three or four of my friends pretty interested in wrestling just from this doco. Funny, heavy, all the good shit.

Aaand probably the best doco I've ever seen...
>Paradise Lost
three part trilogy about three boys that are convicted of killing kids. The films span about 15 years and are insanely good. Unbelievably blatant false convictions caught on tape. Really worth a watch

I read that already, it doesn't debunk anything relevant to their main points and I'm pretty certain "they were wrong about some irrelevant details therefore don't believe anything they say" is some kind of logical fallacy. I agree that the first film is rather conspiracy-heavy, but that doesn't change the value of their core arguments; the economy is inherently unsustainable, our governments don't really work for us, the environment is being catastrophically damaged and we should find a way to solve all this that creates the maximum comfort and happiness for the maximum number of people in a way that's sustainable and liberating. I haven't seen anything that debunks any of that.

i'm not arguing man, and don't really care, just providing a link since you asked. but it sounds like you're arguing more for the sequels (i assume, haven't seen em) since all i remember about the first was religion, 9/11 conspiracies, and NWO nonsense. also you won't find those ideas debunked (unstable economy, untrustworthy and corrupt governments/corporations, and unsustainable environmental practices - all of which we should be trying to alleviate but aren't) because they're not conspiracies lol, they're just reality.

The movement has a new age agenda. Simple as that, take the information as just that.. information from an organization that makes a lot of money on people worshiping themselves
One movie that you'll find has a huge conflict of interest while providing very intriguing information is Thrive.
It's the most new age-ey movie around, it made a lot of people think that it started a trend in fact.
After the Thrive movement, people started worshiping the tree of life, and then spirit science got really popular with the help of "Joe Rogan's recomendation''

Heh, I came here to ask about a documentary I couldn't find, but then did a final search, and managed to finally find it:

>The Corporation : The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6zQO7JytzQ

Now, this is not a new doc - it came out in 2003 originally - but I still remember it fondly because the narrator (credited here as "Mikela J. Mikael") sounds so cool, almost like a computer voice. Anyone else remember this? It was "hot" about the same time as the first version of Zeitgeist came out (and those others, mentioned in the picture). Nowadays it's probably outdated and whatever, but I wanted to throw it out here, if anyone else happens to remember it.

This is a four part documentary about, well, sci-fi. Judging from the first episode it's not ground breaking or anything like that, but still watchable for those interested.

(The best part about the first episodes is, IMO and somewhat surprisingly, the bits with Anthony Daniels, aka C-3PO. He cracks a couple of jokes.)

HBO's Vice is a documentary TV series that covers a wide range of topics and perspectives that are seldom the focus of other western news programs.

With Bill Maher executive producing I expect that a group of people will write this show off outright as being "liberally" biased. While it's impossible to deny that Bill Maher and VICE magazine are "liberal" by current American political standards, they do an admirable job of attempting to stay objective.

Regardless of your own political bias, VICE offers more compelling narratives that any other television news program currently airing.

Art and Craft is a fucking awesome documentary. It's about a man who lives on disability, and passes his time by forging art. He would make these forgeries, then *donate* them to museums, so that nothing illegal actually takes place. The museums think they got an authentic piece and will display it in their collection. But he never monetarily benefits, and he only got fame when a curator and reporter caught on to his antics.

As a movie, it mostly explores the history of the forger and a former museum curator who's trying to make him stop. There's no forced melodrama or allegory. It's just an honest telling of an interesting story.

And he looks a lot like John Malkovich.

I searched for something I have watched so I could comment on it.

Citizenfour.
Documents the few days in Hong Kong where Ed Snowden meets with documentary film maker Laura Poitras and journalist Glen Greenwald (and some other Scottish journalist). I expected more heavy exposition of documents and revelations surrounding the mass surveillance scandal involving western intelligence agencies. What I got instead was many shots of Ed's pretty face, and focus on him as a figure, even when he explicitly tells both his wish is not that. It has a few good bits of higher ups lying to congress, but otherwise deals with the issue quite superficially, imo.

I think he's a double agent.

>I expected more heavy exposition of documents and revelations surrounding the mass surveillance scandal involving western intelligence agencies.

I think they wanted to avoid having the film be a heavy-handed fact-dump. They do want the film to actually be successful enough to spread the word, after all, and (as John Oliver recently illustrated) mass audiences simply do not like being fed rote information and technical explanations. People on the whole sadly seem to respond better to simple narratives, and the layout of this story seemed to do a very good job of presenting a simple, relatable, suspenseful, character-driven conflict that gets people interested enough to sit through the movie and pay attention. Especially all the different hoops he has to jump through, the tradecraft steps and possible points of failure that he points out, explaining how they can sabotage any number of innocuous objects you might have around you at any given time (e.x. the hotel phone). Aside from maybe the dick-pic angle, they probably thought this the best way get people paying attention to this issue.

Also, this focus on "on the ground" narrative and the focus on interviews with a very small number of key figures that sheds like on far-reaching and esoteric subjects is typical of Poirtas's other documentaries My Country, My Country and The Oath (which you should watch if you haven't).

There's also Tales of the Grim Sleeper that just came out. Here's the description of it:

>He became known as the Grim Sleeper, a serial killer who stalked South Central LA for more than 25 years--and whose crimes went largely uninvestigated because his victims were poor and black. This documentary revolves around the shocking investigation of Lonnie Franklin, arrested in 2010 as the alleged perpetrator of a killing spree that may have totaled more than 100 victims.

He's not wrong though. Docs can be great for getting a general overview or one-sided perspective on something, but if you're relying on them for education you're never going to develop a robust understanding of the subjects. It's one step up from getting all your facts from Wikipedia. Fine as a starting point, but eventually your going to need to learn how to read journal articles and professional research.

I watched The Iron Sheik, it was really not good. They really glossed over his career to just the bare minimum of plot points to the point that he seemed to have just wrestled in the AWA and then the WWF. And even then, they just limit his career from creating the character and winning the WWF title before being fired. Too much time is wasted on the chuckle fucks that promote him nowadays, it feels like something that should be 5 minutes in the closing being stretched to 30.

okay and what is the point of discussing something you barely understand? so you can impress people who know less about a subject than you know?

It's just worse than a waste of time unless you follow up, and then you could have just done the following up part without watching the bullshit part. You watch it for the purpose of learning something, but if you don't take it with a rock of salt you're just filling your head with shit.

Basically documentaries are evil because they consume the demand for video of exotic phenomena. There could be different people making documentaries that just shut their fucking gay mouths and film things that happen and let you take in the information with minimal interference.

agree with this; whenever a current event goes on and the 'news' covers it, I always look for youtube uploads where a person shows a video of what's happening. It's really incredible when you strip away the news narrator who explains everything, shows the clip, then goes back with further explanation, filling your mind with preconceptions and simple answers.

for example what's happening in Baltimore right now. if you see raw, unedited footage of the riot violence you'll get a better picture of the reality than any retarded blogger or newscaster blathering on about something when their opinion or take on it doesn't fucking matter.

however what you say about nature docu's I disagree with because the camera lens and the editing and pacing are a form of bias and narration; even without words you're still being spoonfed

if it weren't for a the faggots making the docu trying to sound like they know what they are talking about the presentation of photography wouldn't be so gay.

basically nature docus should be a complete summary of observable phenomena over some period of time. If the lion is sitting still for 5 hrs, show a bit of it and say he sat still for 5hrs. If the lion is hunting tourists, show the whole thing. It's not hard to truthfully summarize if you're not preoccupied by being a huge gaylord.

Problem is this will never happen until there is some kind of cultural revolution. We need to try, imprison and execute our current leaders and replace them with scientists whose main agenda is understanding the world, not playing games with the world population in order to masturbate their ego.

What is the point of being the antagonist in every single thread you see? So you can feel proud of yourself for having the ability to cynically deconstruct every opinion somebody has on a forum dedicated to stoners? All you're doing is over-analyzing everything for the sake of having an edgy opinion. You think you're showing people the bigger picture but you're so far up your ass you don't even realize how narrow your perception is.

Yes, most documentaries and youtube videos pander to recreational people who have no real regard for true knowledge. What's your point? That some people are stupid and lazy and others are able to profit from it? Therefor nobody should watch documentaries? You're so judgmental that you have lost your ability to seek knowledge in any form, restricting your sources of knowledge to those which you have pre-approved based on inferred judgements. So in a sense you're just like the people you're criticizing.

And not that it even needs to be said. Not all documentaries are like this. The average and the knowledgeable person can learn a lot from certain documentaries. It's not a bad thing to have education in multiple forms of media including documentaries. In certain circumstances, visual media can provide data and knowledge in a much faster comprehensible form than reading, no matter how smart you are.

Bumping cause Audience Network is premiering its six part documentary series The Fighting Season on Tuesday at 9pm EDT. Here's a synopsis about it:

>The Fighting Season is an up-close, first-person account of the deadliest year in our nation's longest war. In March 2014, as the Taliban increased its attacks to derail the historic Afghan presidential elections, highly trained American soldiers were enlisted to ensure the democratic election process was upheld. Inspired by the brave men and women who serve our country, actor/director Ricky Schroder and a small film crew traveled to document their missions. The result is The Fighting Season, an unprecedented, in-depth look into the experiences of the U.S. Army in Afghanistan.

And here's the trailer - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGHeCGsGHXw

Watching "The 90's - The last great decade" which is a biased 3-part documentary mostly about what happened in the US during the 90's. Still interesting because I had forgotten about so much, and had no idea about how big an impact some of those events had on American society since I'm a yoropeean.

Now I'm looking for similar documentaries about the 00's and possibly the '10's, anyone know of something along those lines?


>>323551
Well it depends on what countries you are interested in, but the subjects you should look deeper into is the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, when England agreed to creating Pakistan out of a chunk of colonized India, The Pashtun people (and especially former usurper president Mohammad Daoud Khan and his nationalist ideas) ((Actually look up the idea of Nationalism and how it affected Turkey and Iran as well)). Also the creation and expansion of Israel is relevant, as is the history of Saudi Arabia. Also read up on French and English colonies in the middle east and northern africa. The history of the Kurds and the relationship between the Eastern Church and Islam could be useful as well.

This should at least give you a firm understanding of the situation in the middle east from around 1900 - 1980's. It's a good foundation to build on if you want to understand more recent post-cold war events.

That should give you a good idea

I'm watching this. Creepy shit. I've had a few sleep paralysis episodes in my life. It's a real thing. I almost wish it could happen again. I think people panic when it happens and as a result they summon a negative hallucination from their unconscious because they interpret the paralysis as some kind of supernatural attack against them. But this phenomena has the potential to reveal the workings of the unconscious mind in ways that could revolutionize psychology. Some people spend lifetimes trying to replicate a mind-state where they can summon and communicate with the archetypes of their unconscious mind. Imagine if somebody were able to induce sleep paralysis on themselves, and through a rational relaxed state, actually be able to choose which archetypes they communicate with, such as a wise mentor or "spirit guide" for advice. Or to speak with the manifestation of the memories they hold of people who have died. Or to explore negative habits which would(in this state) manifest themselves as independent beings allowing the person to confront them, and mentally locate and separate it from their consciousness in daily life.

This is some real Carl Jung shit right here. A man who was in regular contact with hallucinations of his unconscious during dreams as well as awake. This "contact" is one of the things that allowed him to gain so much insight into psychology and the inner workings of the mind. This is also what many shamans and psychonauts strive to achieve.

Crazy shit

It's what most angers me about the legal system; those who work within it are almost always from a well-off, sheltered background, and yet they have the arrogance and audacity to think themselves qualified to pass judgement on people who have lived lives more harsh and brutal than they could ever comprehend.

I find it absolutely hilarious too that some of these people consider themselves Christian, when apparently "though shalt not kill" and "judge not lest yea be judged" are just words to them.

So HBO is bringing back Project Greenlight 10 years after it ended. Here's the description for Sunday's season premiere:

>Narrowed down from thousands of submissions, thirteen finalists arrive in Los Angeles to meet with the 'Project Greenlight' judges - Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, executive Jennifer Todd, producer Marc Joubert, producer Effie Brown, HBO's Len Amato, and the Farrelly brothers. As the judges discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each contestant's final project, they also debate the importance of artistic vision versus the collaborative skills required to be a successful director--all leading up to a red-carpet event where the winner will be announced.

Also Ferrell Takes The Field will air Saturday at 10pm EDT.

I just download the Decline of Western Civilisation trilogy. They document different music scenes in LA at different points in time.

The first one focuses on the early punk scene in 1979 and features bands like Black Flag, the Germs and Circle Jerks and the fans who make up the audience.
The second one focuses on the glam metal scene in the mid tolate 80s and pretty much brought that scene down when it was aired. Lemmy is the only one who doesn't come off as a complete dick.
The third part focuses on gutter punks in the late 90s and features bands like Litmus Green and Final Conflict

Well worth a watch if you haven't seen them, each one has its own merits.

Not the scene you're talking about, I think, but there's an infamous scene in the 80s one of WASP's guitarist floating in his pool with his own mother nearby and he's smashed out of his skull and pouring booze over his own head while babbling about himself.

>>pretty much brought that scene down when it was aired

I hear that from time to time and I think it's msotly bullshit. What brought down the scene and opened the door to grunge/alternative was 3-4 years of shitty albums throughout the genre, released between 1989 and 1993. I won't spew out a list but many very popular bands either softened their sound or crapped out albums that were just plain dull/uninspired. Then Nevermind popped up with Smells Like Teen Spirit and people grabbed onto it like it was a life preserver.

It was one of the guys from WASP, he was floating in a pool lounger rambling shit and poured a bottle of vodka over his head. He claimed later that it was just water.
Ozzy was apparently trying to stay sober and he had the tremors so bad he was spilling orange juice everywhere and knocking stuff over while he tried to cook breakfast.

Stuff like Paul Stanley being interviewed while in bed surrounded by groupies was obviously layed on for the camera but none of it feels staged.
Spheeris just gives them enough rope to hang themselves and they do a grand job of it for the most part.

There's some dark stuff where the musicians are talking about drugs and overdosing but a lot of it is just exposing the people in that scene for the buffoons they were.

I got into metal not long after glam died and from talking to guys who were into glam, a lot of people saw Decline and turned their back on it, they moved onto thrash out of embarrassment. This is before grunge even took off.

You're right that the scene had been stagnant for a while though. Decline II didn't kill it single handed but it sure helped nail down the lid.

Uhg. I'm just in a shitty middle position where I'm bored to tears of Plebeian stuff like documentaries, yet too lazy and discouraged to get into the dry academic stuff. It's rare that I get a passion to push through the dull stuff to get to the real meat. I'm still looking for cartoons and shit about gnosticism or something, as if I still need that gateway.

I wish someone would make a comprehensive documentary about metaphysics I guess and any proofs. Like anyone can state the contention that the universe was created by a flawed demiurge, but what makes it any different than one about the flying spaghetti monster? Obviously atheists would say it's obvious that there is none other than the age and popularity of each statement, perhaps the complexity of the supporting story. Philosophy tries to get into reason to validate why a statement is so, but it gets really messy and confusing quickly. I haven't heard anyone bring up {altered} states of consciousness into the subject of proofs. I suspect even that this is THE MAIN source of proof for even the more reasonable spiritual truths, such as many of the Buddhist stuff about suffering and our perceptions being unreliable.

He's got no idea how to properly handle a contact, so when the guy he does find asks for some reassurance that he can handle things professionally, this "journalist" acts like an idiot, and he rightly gets called an idiot. So you just want dirt? You want a scoop? You don't understand a professional nature? Then this will be just a simple business transaction. You pay me for my time, I'll jerk you around and test your patience. You screw up {which he did} because you're short on time and you're gone. He got desperate for something of substance, and he asked insensitive questions. Holy shit, playing that "Well how was I supposed to know if you disapprove of homosexuality unless I ask" bullshit. Maybe if he did some research he wouldn't be bumbling through that interaction like a completely unprepared ignoramus. The other guy that got close to Michael and fumbled the PR situation could also see how insensitive Louis was, and Louis had the gall to try and guilt trip him as if trusting Louis would have somehow been a good decision as an alternative to the mistake he made. False dichotomy. God, he even sucks at trying to be manipulative.
He talks in interviews about being polite and inoffensive, but I don't see it at all. He tries to be passive-aggressive, the kind of "oh, I'm just asking.". The exploitation is garbage. See the one about the sex offenders? He chases that guy down that gets kicked out, and the guy knows what's up. Put on a good performance and maybe you'll get some money. So he puts on the old sob story. aaaand cut. I can just imagine "Was that good? Can you give me a 20?" right after that.

Iran Yesterday & Tomorrow (Rick Steves).

It's a rather shallow documentary, and you can see how he tippy toes around sensitive questions, because otherwise the government would probably confiscate his film.
But still I think it's a good view from the outside for someone who haven't seen much from Iran other than reading that they are muslims and want to build nukes.

That looks like a kosher kill line. Normal beef slaughter involves a special airgun that fires a bolt into the cows head.

Nah, that contraption is called a slaughter box, it holds the cow's head still while it's stunned. (usually by a slaughterman with a captive bolt gun) All modern slaughterhouses use them. The side of it opens up and the stunned cow is tipped out, then it's strung up by a back leg and has its throat cut.

Kosher and halal slaughter boxes have a slightly different setup directly over a drain and a lever that raises the cow's head right back because the animals have to bleed out while concious for the magic to work.
The one I worked at had a Jewish slaughterman on the staff and had a box that actually rotated the cow upside down before it got cut for the kosher slaughter. He was a nice guy but it's a fucked up way of going about it. In a normal slaughter the cow doesn't know what hit it. It gets stunned and it gets bled while it's still out. With kosher slaughter you see the panic in their eyes as they're bleeding out and breathing in their own blood.

There's something called the slaughterman's creed which all the new boys are told when they start:
“Thine is the task of blood.
Discharge thy task with mercy.
Let thy victim feel no pain.
Let sudden blow bring death;
Such death as thou thyself would ask for.”
Jews and Muslims give no such fucks.

I think they put it out at a festival and it got lukewarm reviews. My theroy is that this dashed their hopes of being filmmakers and they wanted to not have wasted all that time filming for it to be considered not very good. So they intend to re-configure all their footage so it wont be a piece of shit, but got stock in development hell and realized they're sitting on a turd. Schadenfreude is the main reason I check up on the project, the meta story of delusional aspiring filmmakers realizing they don't have talent is the real story there, more than any interest in ulilila himself

It's a documentary about PTSD, it's really good. Some sad shit, yo.


But if you aren't into that, there is another really good one called Room 237. It's definitely one of my favorites. It is just a bunch of theories behind the true meaning of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining.

Stephen King being interviewed about that film
>Did you see that new documentary Room 237 about obsessive fans of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining?
>Yeah. Well, let me put it this way – I watched about half of it and got sort of impatient with it and turned it off. These guys were reaching. I’ve never had much patience for academic bullshit. It’s like Dylan says, “You give people a lot of knives and forks, they’ve gotta cut something.” And that was what was going on in that movie.

>You’ve been extremely critical of Kubrick’s film over the years. Is it possible he made a great movie that just so happens to be a horrible adaptation of your book?
>No. I never saw it that way at all. And I never see any of the movies that way. The movies have never been a big deal to me. The movies are the movies. They just make them. If they’re good, that’s terrific. If they’re not, they’re not. But I see them as a lesser medium than fiction, than literature, and a more ephemeral medium.

I love King, but god, he sounds stupid sometimes.

To be fair, there's footage of him in that movie doing some really corny shit. Not that corny shit doesn't make him a stand up guy, and I'd probably sooner believe Hawk than either Tas or Ben Pappas, but I'm just sayin'.

When it comes to the 900, Hawk landed it publicly first, and I think that's that. While I'm not really 100% on whose side to believe in the allegations made against him, I do think he deserves all of the credit he's gotten for it. Things probably could have been different, but they weren't, so oh well I guess.

But when it comes to that documentary, no matter whose side you believe, it's still a fantastic movie, and a great story about some truly fucked up stuff. I grew up watching Tas and Ben on TV, and I never knew there was this much to their stories, let alone it all being so interesting.

I know it might sounded biased since Tony is my uncle's brother and I've met him like 4 times and I can support how much of a standup guy he is, he did land the 900 first and helped to popularize skateboarding and he's had an everlasting influence on the sport. I'll have to check it out and give it a watch though, seems like an interesting documentary.

Dogtown and Z-Boys is good, and it dealt with a subject that truly deserved to be documented, but I also think it's a fairly slower experience than either the Bones Brigade doc or All This Mayhem. It has a really historical view to it all and tends to not deal with human drama or interaction nearly as much as the other two. Which is fine, it really didn't need to for what it is, but I still think the Bones Brigade Autobiography and All This Mayhem are better movies. Plus, the Z-Boys stuff (as much as I truly do appreciate them pretty much inventing skateboarding, and it's interesting to see how it all came to be) just isn't an era of skating that I personally come from or connect with as much.

>Louis spends time with staff and service users at the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust, one of the UK's largest providers of neuro-behavioural rehabilitation, in an effort to understand how individuals and their families come to terms with this life-changing condition.

Often called a 'hidden disability' because those affected can show little physical signs of change, individuals with acquired brain injury face enormous cognitive, behavioural and personality challenges. Those affected are left to reconstruct who they are - from relearning the basics of walking, talking and eating to redeveloping complex personality and behavioural traits, often in the shadow of who they once were
so I don't think concussions it sounds like the more severe side of brain injuries

Honestly I can't stand Louis Theroux or Jon Ronson

They are both far too smug and self satisfied.

One scene that sticks with me is when Louis is at the school for autistic children and one of the children pulls up his wikipedia page and starts reading and Louis gets REALLY freaked out and asks the kid to close it. Like, that kid was actually proactively learning and because he couldn't stand having the spotlight on him for once he stopped that learning taking place.

I do find Louis' docs watchable though, but I find it's for the subject matter really. I mean who wouldn't watch a documentary on porn stars or nazi nuts?

Watched The Act of Killing directors cut and The Look of Silence last night with a friend. Really emotionally moving stuff and letting the films speak for themselves rather than them speaking to us helps to get across how the mass atrocities committed against "communists" in 1965-6 have had an impact on people in their lives. The Look of Silence in particular because of its format and Adi confronting the people that were responsible for his brother's death.

Watched the first two parts of OJ: Made in America, which covered OJ's life up until before the night he allegedly murdered Nicole and Ronald Goldman. What I really liked about these parts was how it wasn't just about OJ's backstory leading up to the murders but also how they told the history of racial injustices and police brutality suffered by African Americans in Los Angeles and contrasting that with OJ's character of wanting to try and transcend racial boundaries and being seen as being not black but being OJ of being judged not by the color of his skin but by his character and abilities. Not that I don't disagree with that because OJ was one of the best running backs to play college and pro football and paved the way for black athletes to be accepted by a mainstream audience and get endorsement deals and stuff.

What this documentary does a great job with is portraying is how disingenuous and unengaged he was in the black community, which Johnnie Cochran later hypocritically portrayed OJ as being a leader for the black community. But damn the stuff about him abusing Nicole was really sad and those photos of her beaten and battered face and diary documenting the abuses were just awful. He really was a two-faced asshole who put on a facade when he was really a manipulative and abusive control freak. Gonna try and watch the rest of the doc this weekend, if you guys like watching The People v. OJ Simpson then I think you'll appreciate this more.

Watched parts three and four, which delved into the night of the murders and the trial leading up to the verdict. Those crime scene and autopsy photos were brutal to look at on top of Alan Hodgman's description of how he thought OJ would have killed Nicole and Ronald. I think the biggest things for me I was surprised about was OJ not taking his arthritis medicine for two weeks before he put on the gloves since by then his hands would have been more swollen and wouldn't fit the gloves. And Mark Fuhrman is a fucking idiot and the prosecution are even bigger idiots for putting him on the stand especially him pleading the 5th after the tapes got played. The defense isn't trying to prove that OJ didn't do it, they're trying to provide doubt and question the credibility of the prosecution's case, which they were able to do by bringing in race into the equation. Going to watch the final part tomorrow.

Watched the fifth and final part of OJ: Made in America. It covered the time between the verdict of OJ's murder trial in 1995 to him going to prison for armed robbery in 2007. It was depressing to see how much he had fallen from the public eye and the people he started to surround himself with. As much as it's tragic that Ronald died, Fred trying to get every last cent out of OJ as a vendetta against him especially publishing OJ's book that got shelved just didn't sit right with me and wasn't any better for someone who was acquitted in a court of law. It reminds me of Martha Hart's vendetta against WWE for Owen's death. OJ will probably get out of prison in a year or so if his parole is granted, which I wouldn't be surprised if he got.

But yeah that was probably one of the best 30 for 30 docs ESPN has done. I enjoyed the hell out of it.

I don't have sympathy for what he did to Nicole or the murders that he was found not guilty of (although he was found liable in a civil court) as I made that clear in my post >>367679.

He had all the money, fame and admiration of many people that transcended racial boundaries watching him on the field and on screen but he threw it all away and ruined his career.

In my defense, I had framed it within the overall historical context of the documentary's narrative, which I thought its presentation as a rise and (prolonged) fall story was done very well. I wasn't trying to say that him getting away with murder was a tragedy as it was tragic that the murders even happened in the first place. I apologize for the misunderstanding.

On a side note, I got to see Louis Theroux's my scientology movie in a cinema a while ago. I quite enjoyed it, seeing and hearing him on the big screen is hilarious enough. Its like he took his previous scientology work and turned it into an "act of killing" style film. I appreciate hes reached a rather serious phase, but I miss his previous forms, quirky louis (weird weekends) and cheeky louis (louis meets)

>I appreciate hes reached a rather serious phase, but I miss his previous forms, quirky louis (weird weekends) and cheeky louis (louis meets)

i mostly agree with you.

I havent seen my scientology movie, its only being shown in the art gallery cinema for 4 days and pretty much all the tickets are sold out and i hate being in packed movie theatres.

But onto Louis, i totally agree, i think some of the stuff he did after louis meets was still pretty louis, like the time he hangs around with the neo nazis, the isrealis the pedophiles etc, he was still in the playing innocent phase where people would open up.

His latest films carry a serious tone. im not sure if its because he wants to leave a legacy, that he feels some kind of obligation to touch on these issues, whether he feels the stuff he was doing prior was not up to his journalistic standards or whatever, but yeah, he is very much less the old louis where he would play friends, act innocent, lull them into revealing some dumb shit, then judge them from a sound stage.

But i havent seen my scientology movie and i hope there is some of the old Louis in it when i eventually get to see it, afaik the uk is showing it in october so hopefully it'll be on the interwebs soon after.

yeah i suppose so he does recap the situation before he gets into it.

Basically louis interviewed a celebrity in 2000 for a show louis meets ... savile. and it turns out that savile was a pedophile, which was always something accused of him.
So louis goes over why he didnt know and talks to other people who kinda knew him and his victims.

Theres a moment where he gets angry at one of the people hes interviewing. When i say angry, more stern disdain than flipping table angry.

Watched Amanda Knox. It's hard to know what to believe but given how the prosecution and forensics team handled the investigation and interrogations, I'm leaning more towards that she wasn't involved in the murder of Meredith Kercher and the circumstantial evidence used especially with the DNA on the knife wasn't enough to ascertain that she used it to kill her.

Pretty good documentary though they should have gone more into Rudy Guede's sids of the story and his involvement. Probably will watch some more true crime docs and series. I hear The Jinx is really good.

I watched Beware the Slenderman yesterday, about the Slenderman stabbing. I've seen some say that it places the blame solely on the internet, but that's not what I got from it. It might come off that way in the first half (which I was a bit distracted with helping my parents with something) but I came to the conclusion what really happened was that it was a case of one fucked up kid and another who fell prey to peer pressure.

That being said, it felt really drawn out. I kinda loved the scenery shots, but they didn't really add much and felt like they were added just for the sake of it.

I got the impression that it was more of an issue of hindsight combined with hopeful thinking that their kid didn't have the same issues the father had. Mental issues are not only invisible, a lot of people just don't want to admit that there is something wrong with their kid. They didn't really want to think that their kid would have to go through the same turmoil they did. Of course, if they had just told her about it, they may have been able to realize that she was going down a dark path and intervened before something could happen. I'll admit that's a bit of an optimistic hypothetical.

I'm watching the 'Ultra Zionists' one now, and it's pretty good.
One thing that I like about him is that he doesn't really mince words. He's very blunt in dealing with people and calling them on their bullshit. Which is how he pretty much made that dude cry in the Scientology one, and he's really pissing off some of these Jews in this one.
I wish there was a network station in the US that actually puts out great material like BBC does. It kinda makes me sad that America doesn't have an equivalent, because over the years BBC has really put out a lot of phenomenal content.

It's because the BBC doesn't have to pander for ad money to exist. They do get some income from advertising, but for the most part the BBC is funded by the British people. You know the joke that people make that Brits have to pay for a TV license or their government will take them away to a dungeon? Well that fee is actually a thing, but actually goes entirely to support the BBC. You can get similar very high quality content from PBS and NPR in the United States, which we of course pay for with a very (very) small part of our taxes.

Yeah it was pretty damn good, and very telling. I mean it was nothing I didn't already know, except a more in depth glimpse into the different perspectives.

It's kinda funny that he refers to them as some kinda of ultra super zionists, yet most of the people he encountered were just regular old Zionist Israeli's. I'm guessing he did that to just make it slightly less harsh on the Zionists considering that pretty much every Western nation backs them. You could definitely wrinkle some feathers if you said "this is how every zionist Israeli thinks."

I'm watching Savile right now, and this is a pretty fuckin strange one. I didn't even know who Savile is but getting some background on it, it's pretty crazy. It seems kinda like he's the British equivalent of Bill Cosby or something like that.
I think I've only gotten into his more serious ones, because those are the ones I can find streams of right now. I'm gonna torrent some of his less serious ones later.

Got around to watching Revelations and Purgatory. The filmmakers really did an incredible job of being able to show all sides of the case from the victims, the West Memphis 3, the prosecutors and defense, the evidence and vice versa. The whole case in a nutshell was a witch hunt and a grave miscarriage of justice set against the backdrop of moral panic over satanism and devil worship especially in a town like West Memphis. It sucks they had to take Alford pleas and admit their guilt, but at least now they're finally free and Damien was saved from execution. As far as true crime documentaries go, this is a must watch.

I just saw Wheel of Time by Werner Herzog and it blew me away. Can anyone recommend some documentaries about pilgrimages and religious experiences? I Know Herzog is not always neutral, but he did a really good job exploring Buddhism as an outsider without getting too critical or overly reverent. If you know of any I don't care what religion they are about.

Now you got me interested!

Someone in the comment section of the wheel of time video suggested Amongst White Clouds https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FumyvVOVbaY, its not about pilgrimage though.

I looked for some documentaries of the Christian pilgrimage but couldn't find any, which is weird because of how many christians there are.

Any other 30 for 30 documentaries besides OJ: Made in America and This Was the XFL that are any good?

Watched Dirty Wars recently. It's a documentary by a renowned journalist about how America has been carrying on highly illegal and terrible shadow wars using an arm of the military called JSOC. Like most "revealing" shit I wasn't surprised, anyone suitably appraised of how world events work and reads current events would have known this. However, this journalist finds actual concrete evidence and credible witnesses, and it was actually a bit worse than some of the conspiracy theories claimed, so there's that.
THANKS OBAMA WHO WON THE PEACE PRIZE WHILE ALL THIS WAS HAPPENING AND HE PERSONALLY SANCTIONED IT

Thanks Obama for continuing programs that were started by Bush. Cheney and Rumsfeld. Did you expect Obama to take the bone away from the ravenous beast while there's still meat on the bone? I doubt any president will have the clout to do so.

lol, watch the doc. Obama condoned and expanded JSOCs role in illegal shadow wars. The documentarian even found evidence that Obama personally made a call to the leader of Yemen to request a Yemeni journalist (who had reported on evidence of JSOC activity in Yemen before the civil war even broke out) be kept in prison and silenced.

Obama literally sanctioned and helped JSOC prompt the Yemeni civil war that has now turned into the worst famine and humanitarian crisis in the last few decades. And he won the Nobel Peace Prize.

AND he scrapped the child soldier prevention laws Bush jr put in place during his time.
Yemen, Sudan, Congo, Libya... Now US can send weapons and training there even though the armies use child soldiers.
Child prostitution / trafficking law too.

AND NDAA, aka indefinitely detain even US citizens with no trial jury evidence, just because the POTUS says you're a terrorist, literal powers of a king.
Hence the slur of calling him King Obama or King N-word.

Good thing about this doc is it actually gives the Korean side of things, which is refreshing change of pace from them not being mentioned at all in any of the recent OJ Simpson docs.

Also, I really love docs like this that are 100% chronological order primary footage of a event with no narration. Unfortunately all I can think of are this one, an OJ Simpson chase doc that intercut with other news on that day, and various 9/11 docs.
