t's a difficult watch but it's worth it, the film won a few awards but seems to be quite unknown which is a shame. I think it deserves more recognition for what it was and became, a well made gritty documentary which turned tragic, showing firsthand the senseless violence that plaques some aspects of American society.

Seems quite interesting but don't you think the 3rd paragraph of your post is a major spoiler? Maybe you want to edit it :)

I know, it's on my list. 

 

Did you watch it? What did you think?

it's funny and entertaining I guess.

but every single person who appears in it is completely hate-able. just terrible human beings. if it wasn't for the lockdown and lack of of things to do I would have skipped this one. there's enough spoilers and people talking about it on podcasts by now. it's one of those docs which is too long and could've been explored in half the time. Tiger King really speaks for itself. it's wild. it's abhorrent. it's crazy white people being crazy.

 

I need an escape from this escapism. been snacking on these new docs from Vice lately.

I'll give it a go. Netflix has an almost impeccable track-record for funding documentaries of strange people with really bizarre stories - to the point where I wonder how I haven't heard of the person before. 

 

I posted this a while ago, but will post it again because they aren't that popular but the their stories are crazy. 2 documentaries about rock climbing. Yeah, I've no interest in rock climbing as a hobby or sport, but.. these people are mental!

 

The narrative in the first one is great. Because they show you these free-wheelin' hippie maverick types that end up drinking while up on cliff and dropping LSD vs the other group which were more conservative and conscientious. Both groups trying to outdo each other climbing impossible cliffs. Every time one or more people does this crazy millstone of climbing an impossible and not before climbed cliff-face you just go "wow!" and then 10 years late some other mental case will top that record by doing something even more dangerous and insane. This documentary is basically: "Thats impossible." until some crazy guy comes along and does it. Each generation since the 60's and 70's tops the previous generations records. It's specatular. I couldn't believe rock-climbing could be so crazy. 

 

 

 

The second one is truly amazing too. This guy who goes off with his girlfriend, ends up being kidnapped by some Islamists that end up shooting at them mid-climb, ends up pushing one of the captors off a cliff and escapes. He felt ridden with guilt for pushing the Islamist off the cliff. Later, he ends up losing a thumb and is told he probably can't climb again. Ends up doing a mad rigorous training regime to strengthen his stump of a thumb, ends up climbing again and breaking new ground and does the Dawn Wall. The guy Tommy Caldwell was the first to free-climb El-Capitan, in Yosimite. And the first to climb the Dawn Wall section. Insane.

 

If anyone likes a feel-good doc, you should watch these, especially the second one will make you feel good and really inspired. It's amazing what people can achieve when they have determination.

Excellent shot-doc about the Hip Hop and Rock/Mental connection with Run The Jewels.

The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez on Netflix.

 

Had to stop watching this one as it was too much and started to overwhelm me. Be warned, it's similar to the Baby P. case (though this child was a bit older than Baby P) in how it all could have been stopped and the system completely failed the poor boy here.

 

Not recommended. Too graphic and detailed for me, though I do agree the systematic failures must be highlighted so much to see more done to protect children, I hope it did/does. They had so many opportunities to help (at least up to where I got to, but Netflix doc's can throw up a twist, so I could be misinformed by not seeing it through to learn more).

 

@Awful Waffle. That Dark Side of the Ring series is excellent though. Not seen part 2 of the Benoit case just yet, nor the New Jack one, but keen to as I know that New Jack fella is one crazy bastard, lol. Blimey!

How free trade deals with the EU and China stop developing economies from developing as EU and China dump cheaper goods undercutting local farmers who are powerless to stop this because of Free Trade Deals.

What's in these Free Trade Deals for them?

It's just like CETA, EU sells, doesn't buy.
