The Good & The Bad - Movies Watched In 2014 (424 movies items)

"A fascinating documentary from the late 80's about the shooting death of a police officer and the subsequent conviction, imprisonment, and death sentence of an innocent man. Using dramatic reconstructions and many eye-witness testimonies, Errol Morris' documentary dives headlong into the case. There's a parade of conflicting testimonies and overlapping subjective viewpoints, the truth of the murder is murky and shapeless, until things begin to focus. This is more artfully arranged than most docu"

Police Brutality (8 movies items)

" The Blue Code of Silence: An unwritten rule among the force to not snitch on each other no matter the crime or misconduct. Police brutality was a major drive behind 2011 Egyptian revolution; the incident of Khaled Said's death and other stories, yet very little has changed since. One of the "demands" around which people decided to take it to the streets in Egypt is "purging the Ministry of Interior" for its brutality and torture practices Things went wrong after the coup regarding police reform"

"Best Errol Morris doc that I've seen. If you like documentaries, you should dig it. i advise you not to look at what it is about.Good score from Philip Glass."

"17.1.2013 Everything seems to be said of this already, but; As intriguing and deadly serious the subject may be, what strike me the most was the way Errol Morris handled the case. That's probably what get me hooked from start. It's just interview after interview, with an occasional cut of staged action - just small things with no dialogue or shitty reenactment like in some of that stuff you might see in TV - and everything that needs to be told comes across just as well with only that simple ma"

"Errol Morris' breakout hit"

Movie Diary 2013 (403 movies items)

"4.1. Kirurgisen tarkkaa epäonnistuneen oikeusjärjestelmän vatsalaukunavausta. Kaikki osapuolet saavat suuvuoron, ja Morris leikkaa puheet niiden tosiperäisyyttä vahvistavaan arkistomateriaaliin. Tuntuu kuin seuraisi dokumentaristin itsensä ajatuksenkulkua, mitä kokonaisuuden elokuvalliset elementit vain vahvistavat. Eikä ajatus karkaa hetkeksikään tarkasti rajatusta, tärkeästä aiheesta, jossa paljastuu hiljalleen olevan kyse ihmishengestä. Suhteellisen kiehtovaa ja häiritsevää "

"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."

"Very fascinating and intense. With such a distinct style and focus, Errol Morris has become one of my favorite documentary filmmakers. "
