I am a giant movie nerd, and I especially love documentaries. I have recommended a few of my favorite documentaries before, but I have recently been inspired to make a rather exhaustive list of my favorite crime documentaries that are available on Netflix. This list is for movies that are available on Netflix in the U.S. - I’m not sure which of them are available in other countries. Please reblog or comment on this post if you have recommendations!
Just like his character Eggsy Unwin, “Kingsman: The Secret Service” had popped Taron’s cherry in many ways. It had been his first film, first press junket, and first big movie premiere. It was first time having reporters and photographers competing for his attention, camera lights flashing everywhere and leaving him disoriented at times. Taron probably wouldn’t have come out of the exhausting experience alive if it weren’t for Colin, who had taken him under his wing and taught him to be gracious and generous to the crew, media, and fans. It was effortless for someone like Colin. Colin was well-spoken and well-read, but Taron was still learning to tamp down his excitability – fidgeting in his chair, blurting out the first thing on his mind, and generally making an embarrassment of himself during interviews. There were too many videos of him gazing longingly at Colin for fuck’s sake. This time, he was going to tone it down.
Never did he think “Kingsman” would become a big enough hit that they’d make a sequel. Never in a million years did he think Colin would come back for the second movie but here they were: Taron Egerton and Colly Wobbles, picking up right where they left off. They cracked jokes during filming breaks and spent time a lot of time together talking about their projects, families, and even politics with Brexit looming in the near future.

The last Beatles concert, Candlestick Park, San Francisco, August 29th 1966.
“By Candlestick Park it was like ‘Don’t tell anyone, but this is probably our last gig’” [Paul, Anthology]
“There was big talk at Candlestick Park that this had got to end. At that San Francisco gig it seemed that this could possibly be the last time, but I never felt 100% certain until we got back to London. John wanted to give up more than the others. He said that he’d had enough.” [Ringo, Anthology]
“When we got to Candlestick Park, we placed our cameras on the amplifiers and put them on the timer. We stopped between tunes, Ringo got down off the drums, and we stood facing the amplifiers with our back to the audience and took photographs. We knew. ‘This is it - we’re not going to do this again. This is the last concert.’ It was a unanimous decision.” [George, Anthology]
“We’d like to carry on, I think. We’re not really sure yet. I’d like to carry on, certainly. Definitely. Well, shall we just watch this for a bit? Just watch it. The next song is called Paperback Writer.” [Paul, in between songs at Candlestick Park, Source: BeatlesBible.com]
“I’m just sorry for the people who can’t see us live. Sometimes you haven’t missed anything because your wouldn’t have heard us, but sometimes I think you might have enjoyed it. I’m sorry for them.” [John, quoted in Anthology]
“That’s it, then. I’m not a Beatle anymore.” [George, on the plane home on 30th August, 1966. Source: BeatlesBible.com]
You - and John, Paul and Ringo - will always be Beatles… (Sorry, George).
“The Beatles were never gone. And they could have come back.” [Ringo, Mojo Magazine, August 2016 (in relation to the new Eight Days A Week film about The Beatles touring years)]
This post ended up far more melancholy than I intended! Don’t worry, the Beatles are infinite. We’ll go back to 1964 next and all feel a lot better. xx
