CRITERION FILMS (781 movies items)

"Among the most important documentaries ever made, The Thin Blue Line, by Errol Morris, erases the border between art and activism. A work of meticulous journalism and gripping drama, it recounts the disturbing tale of Randall Dale Adams, a drifter who was charged with the murder of a Dallas police officer and sent to death row, despite evidence that he did not commit the crime. Incorporating stylized reenactments, penetrating interviews, and haunting original music by Philip Glass, Morris uses c"

"30.10. Tämän katsominen oli oikeastaan jo melko kuvottava kokemus. Ulkoelokuvalliset seikat antavat sentään vielä jotain toivoa, ja tämä onkin oikeasti varmaan yksi tärkeimpiä elokuvia, jota olen koskaan katsonut. Siltikään tällaiselle elokuvalle ei saisi olla tarvetta, ja se itsessään tekee tästä pelottavan tapauksen."

Louis Theroux: Twelve Terrific Documentaries (12 movies items)

""I love this film. I can still hear the distinctive musical cadences of the principal character, Randall Dale Adams, and his palpable sense of bafflement at the course his life had taken: convicted of killing a cop in cold blood. If you haven’t seen it you’re in for a treat."

"8.1 This disturbing documentary will make you sick in the stomach and leaves you stunned at how fucked up the justice system can at times be. Much like the more recent documentary Fog of war, Thin blue line is appealing because of its emotional source material and the fact that Errol Morris is just such a great storyteller. Archive material, interviews and scene recreations are in perfect harmony because of the top notch editing job. "

"Directed by Errol Morris Morris's REVOLUTIONARY feature doc, daring to challenge the conservative Texas Judicial System in a desperate 'race-against-time' attempt to save a wronged man's life; commanding visuals and impressive fact building. "
