Great Documentaries

Recommended Posts

Only fifteen minutes or so but a great little video about a band called the Liverbirds. Really enjoyed it. Boss story which is quite uplifting in the end.

I've been watching that Aaron Hernandez documentary on Netflix. It's the equivalent of a top Premiership footballer killing people and then playing at the weekend. Bonkers, had a £40m contract and was killing people for no reason.

Nutters. A documentary about head-the-balls and Pakistan's blasphemy laws. 

 

Storyville, The Accused: Damned or Devoted?: www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000fzpl via @bbciplayer


Watched the majority of that last night and fucking hell there’s some full blown ‘tards in the world.

 

Excellent character study, but you can’t quite believe that such retrograde and backwards views exist, let alone have huge support. It’s akin to the Salem Witch Trials at points which is fucking scary.

Storyville really is superb. I’ve been meaning to start a thread about it for a while but there’s too many good ones to remember. Even if they’re on a topic you don’t consider yourself interested in they’re still great. A fair few have gone on to other platforms and done well without the Storyville banner and I occasionally check YouTube to see if any older ones have resurfaced. 
 

Can’t find a link to it on my box/firestick but my all-time favourite is still ‘Shooting Bigfoot.’

Watched the Muscle Shoals Storyville documentary last week and it was very good.

I started one called Sergio on Netflix but it had constant interviews with the war criminal Tony Blair and referencing his mate George W Bush that I couldn't stomach more than about ten minutes.

I’ve seen that and thought it very good, some boss tunes recorded there over the years. Storyville is always worth a watch, that one about a Russian prison stuck in the middle of a snowbound forest the size of Germany, grim. As well as no luncheon vouchers.

Going to have to get onto these Storyville documentaries, I find the Netflix ones not that interesting after the first episode or two.

Watched a three part Storyville doc over the last couple of days. It's called Fatal Experiments: The Downfall of a Super Surgeon. It should be on the iPlayer. It's about the surgeon Paulo Macchiarini who was transplanting plastic windpipes into people without them having been properly tested. Pretty harrowing watch at times but gripping nonetheless.

 

I googled the fella afterwards to see if there'd been any developments and found an article about him in Vanity Fair which was madness. He'd got engaged to an American journo and he'd lied to her about all sorts, saying that he knew the pope and he'd talked him into officiating their wedding. He also said the Obamas , the Clintons and loads of others were going to be there but it was all lies. It turns out he was already married anyway. Absolutely jaw dropping levels of bullshit from someone who's already famous and supposedly a world renowned expert in his field.

Anyone watched Hospital on BBC2, fly on the wall documentary on the 4 main hospitals in Liverpool.

It puts you through every emotion going and leaves you astonished at how NHS staff work under such pressure. 

I have to watch them in chunks otherwise I wouldnt sleep, they really put you through the mincer, but is a must watch I reckon.

Has the jinx been mentioned in here. Absolutely brilliant HBO documentary about a weird, very wealthy son of a property tycoon in New York.

 

first episode starts with a dismembered body being found in bin bags off the Texas coast, and final episode of ends with one of the best “oh my god what the fuck” things you’ll ever hear in a documentary.

 

i can tell you this without giving anything away... that body in Texas was an old man that was killed, chopped to pieces and dumped into the sea by him, but that’s just the start of the weirdness.

It’s mental that. Well worth a watch. 
 

The Dark Side of the Ring documentaries on 4od are brilliant. Behind the scenes of 80’s and 90’s wwf tragedies and tales. Lee mentioned them on the wrestling draft. Superb

    • The wording around "clear and obvious error" I think needs to change as well. At the minute you've got referees in the VAR room who don't want to overrule their colleagues on the field because in doing so, they're specifying that they've made a clear and obvious error - which sounds pretty damning (like it's a massive fuck up), and as it could easily enough be them on the receiving end the next week they don't like publicly embarrassing each other like that. At the same time the "clear and obvious error" creates a nice line in ambiguity which allows them not to get involved - so last night's farce can be explained away with a "yes it probably isn't a penalty but I can't say for absolute certain that it definitely, definitely isn't, so there's not quite enough evidence to call out my colleague as having made a clear and obvious error. A minor error at most, but not a clear and obvious one." Endless cycle of non-accountability.   Change the wording around what can and cannot be challenged to make a decision reversal less emphatic, and have specialist VAR officials who don't have to worry about VAR making them look like a tit on the field next week.   And in an ideal world, if the technology allows it (I'm no expert, this is just a thought), set the VAR room up so that the officials don't know the score or general match situation, and show them some sort of anonymised decision footage where they can't see faces or kits (as I say, know idea if this is even remotely feasible!). It'd add to their credibility if fans thought that they were making decisions in a completely neutral environment without any bias - conscious or unconscious - having even the slightest impact on their decision-making.
    • Breaking News ;    Man utd have picked Jon Moss to referee the last game of the season against Leicester 
    • Agree with this. I don't think they win a league next season, but credit to them they are smashing teams, albeit shit ones. I much rather them being the comedy act they were a few months ago than what they are now.   They have goals galore in their team against 70 percent of the teams in the league. That makes them dangerous. I find it hard to fear Martial and Pogba because they are self serving shithouses that could fuck off at the drop of a hat. Rashford is a really good player and Greenwood is bloody outstanding. Fernandes is really really good and is the player they have lacked for years.    Right now they remind me of us in 2014. I think that doesn't beat us or City to a title, but if we get an injury crisis and have a 10-12 point drop off and City are in the shit with not being able to sign any world class players, then who knows thet could be a real threat.
    • certainly broke the mould when they made Ray Kennedy. in the career that he had. but he was like all the real great players, they seem to have loads of time, play at their own pace, work for the team as a unit and are deadly when it matters.      
    • I don’t care if he has to do it on crutches, he’s doing the dance and lifting that trophy.
