True Crime Documentaries

Postby Spankymonkey » Fri May 19, 2017 5:20 pm

Did anyone watch the Storyville OJ Simpson series that aired recently? Best doc I've seen on the subject. The man himself is allegedly is to be released this year.

Also watched Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory documentary, which was even more compelling.

Can't say I thought much of The Jinx however. Bit drawn out for what was nothing more than a series dragged out off the back of its ending.

Murder in the park I thought was excellent. This is just the trailer.

As was The Seven Five about police corruption in 70's New York. Again just the trailer.

Just watched Murder in the Park. Amazed that a bunch of hack students at some university of journalism ended up getting a killer released from prison, and an innocent man jailed instead. What's even sadder is that one of those students now heads up the European department of the Associated Press. With journalists like that who needs truth?

Yes it was a remarkable story. A stark reminder​ how the justice system can go wrong.
