Hickory Dickory Doc...

... this chick was sucking my coc... oops! Inappropriate. Got your attention though, didn't it?

The real subject of this post is docs as in documentaries. I loves me some documentaries. I watch a lot of them. Foreign, independent, mainstream, crime, historical, biographical, you name it.

If it looks interesting then I will give it a try.

Here are just a few of the many I`ve watched in the past couple of weeks:

(spoiler alert! I`ve posted my thoughts which may or may not give away any twists and turns. If you don`t want to be spoiled, just click on the title to go straight to the IMDb page)

In no particular order:

MURDER ON A SUNDAY

This one truly broke my heart! The poor kid, accused and jailed for a crime he didn`t commit.  I actually bow down to his defense team. Fantastic lawyers and I don`t say that lightly. Btw, it`s an Oscar winner from 2001.

SHUT UP LITTLE MAN

I thought it started out pretty funny, but then about halfway through, I realized what an absolute invasion of privacy it was and well, then I felt like a total fucking asshole for watching it. 'Course, I didn't shut it off at that point but watched it to the end which makes me even more of an asshole.

And, now I`ve blogged about it, so I guess I`m a triple-dog asshole.

*hangs head in shame*

BOOKER`S PLACE: A MISSISSIPPI STORY

Dual footage of a documentary on racism in the south in 1965 and footage shot in 2011 by the original filmmaker`s son. I thought it was very well done and am still sort of dumbfounded that people actually referred to the blacks as ``our niggers`` like it was a favor! Guess I`m a little sheltered in that aspect, being from Canada and all, but damn.

Still, I truly enjoyed it.

LIFE WITH MURDER

This one is Canadian and pretty much paints a picture of a true sociopath. As soon as the subject spoke on camera, I knew there was more to him than meets the eye. Even worse, I was right. In the end, he admits to what his true plans were that day without any remorse or emotion.

CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS

What a giant bore-fest! I mean it, too. Snooze-a-rooney. A shame, really. I find ancient civilizations fascinating and I was looking forward to getting some new knowledge about how life really was 20,000 years ago. Instead I got some sleepy orchestra music and silent footage inside the cave. Not what I was expecting at all. However, some people liked it because it sure received a lot of awards, so maybe you will too.

I suppose the paintings were cool.

And on that note...

"A-blee-bleet-blee-That's All Folks!"
