Not sure I like the sound of any of those.

 

The top is about a junkie

The second an expose on grooming and the last is about a bloke too fat to fit get out of his front door so they have to take the side off his house.

 

None of them are great

I do enjoy a good documentary to be fair.

 

Any good ones on Netflix at the moment? There's a new one about Juve that looks alright.

Odd case. Jason Miskelley's lawyer is a defendant for the crims on current BBC documentary Life and Death Row.

Watched this earlier man. Buckin place is like a holiday camp for fuck sake... Tell that redundant cunt on the other board to smuggle some drugs through Bali and if he gets away with it he's set up for life, if he gets caught, he's set up for life, in this gaff... Sweet deal likes.

I like watching documentaries made about reasonably well known issues but, told from 'the other side's point of view.

 

Here is a short take on the Arab view [Qatar] of American/Israeli relations and of course Palistine: http://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/specialseries/2017/03/occupation-american-mind-170304122330451.html

 

Moving on,

 

This one is about a subject that has always fascinated me: Why do young American black people join gangs and kill each other? This documentary gives a decent if one sided account of the history of it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdv08c0aiTE&t=3017s&list=LLiaDx_2d_p0EFtAF_uhTXyg&index=70

 

A nice three part set [part 1 here] on British art of the 20th century - almost all of which I'd never known of: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jUsdN1HKLk&t=1s

 

Finally, this is my favorite Adam Curtis documentary - explains his view of freedom in the modern world: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSVlPlnB8wI&list=FLiaDx_2d_p0EFtAF_uhTXyg&index=6

Bit grim in bits when the cunt was talking about having to sleep with the lights on and that when he got back...

 

Didn't finish it, but was half decent what I did see...

 

I used to want to be Bunny in Platoon when I was wee... The boy that smashes the one legged 'gook' with the butt of his rifle... fuck knows what that says about me, but I have never even held a rifle to this day so fair enough then...

Finished Vietnam War on Sunday. Really good stuff and the last episode especially summed up the madness of the whole thing.

Unacknowledged as mentioned in the TV Series thread was an interesting watch.

 

Clicked on We Are Twisted Fucking Sister! on NetFlix and kept it on, very good band documentary about perseverance and taking on the music industry snobs.
