Cunt.

Finished it. Incredible. The documentary is not just about OJ Simpson, but about racial history (and the importance of the Rodney King verdict), spousal abuse and manipulation, corruption, class, cele

I've got that one on my list after Making a Murderer, which I'm finally getting round to.

The Bundy one is great work. Has to be said, I wonder what the victims' families must have made of the idea of having Bundy's interviews basically play narrator over a lot of it, seeing as though that's almost exactly how he would have wanted it. It made for something quite different though.

For those that enjoyed the Bundy doc, definitely check out the book The Only Living Witness. The book is co-written by the same bloke that interviewed Bundy in prison and is loaded with far more detail and, because of this, is fairly impossible to put down. It made the docu-series a bit underwhelming for me because they miss out an incredible amount of detail. 

To paraphrase Bob Mortimer, the Netflix docu-series is a bit Ted Bundy Lite.

Watched this tonight. Pretty great doc about 3 twins who were separated at birth. Then in the 80s when they're 19 they get reunited and the crazy path it takes them on.

Highly recommend it and I'd say it's one of those that will be a lot more interesting if you don't read anything about it prior to watching like I did.

It's co-made with Channel 4 so I wouldn't be surprised if they air in at some point this year.

I'm not sure if this belongs here but I think it does. Anyone watched 'Trigger Warning with Killer Mike' on Netflix?  It's 6 documentary style episodes around different topics, I really enjoyed it. The episode where he makes the rap group with the white supremacist sticks out in particular.

Sat down last night and watched Abducted in Plain Sight.

Fucking hell. 

I know it was the 70s and society was a bit more naive with pedophiles and child abduction and the like, but letting a 40 year old man sleep in the same bed with your young teen daughter four nights a week for several months as part of his "therapy"? Pair of cunts, the parents. More concerned in protecting their reputations in the community than protecting their daughter. The mum in particular seemed to enjoy reminiscing about fucking the pedo. 

The Dad seemed genuinely remorseful but Jesus, I'd want to be murdering the abductor. Only physical altercation between them two was the Dad wanking him off in his car. And describing the day he split with his wife as the worst day of his life? Not the pedo abducting his daughter TWICE and having his way with her? 

The pedo's brother seemed unmoved by the whole thing. Yeah, he was a paedophile but he was a good car salesman so what are you gonna do, y'know?

Utterly mental

this went up on Netflix this morning, looks great.

I watched this last night and then found out Seth Rogan is trying to make a film based on it.

I mean what did I learn? Ja Rule doesn't know the difference between Fraud and False Advertising, that Billy guy did not learn his lesson after being arrested and also how to get stuff through customs. Cracking doc

yep, its a weird one. The odd cameos from B's brother were bizarre too. He didn't seem to think there was much wrong with his brother being a raging paedo. No one was really reacting in a way you'd expect them too throughout the whole film, like during the phone conversations that were played.

[I thought one of the more interesting parts of the film which was skirted over was the part about the book being written by the mother and short footage of them interracting in court. I wanted to hear more about that and how parts of the story may have been made up to sensationalise the story, made me feel there was more to the case.[/SPOILER]

Thanks for the spoilers in that post, you prat.

sorry bud, edited.

this thread is hardly spoiler free though is it? a quick browse through any previous page shows multiple spoilers and discussion regarding whichever documentary is being posted about.

It's not a topic about an individual film or show, is it? You'd expect spoilers in one of those. But multiple things are being discussed here, meaning you can, as I just did, stumble upon a spoiler for something you haven't seen yet.

What makes it even worse is that you're quoting someone who spoiler tagged their post!
