Crime Documentary List

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!

*cracks knuckles* Alright…

❝ ally, hey. ❞ nude pink lips pull into a small smile as she set her bags down by the door, setting her purse down with them. she herself had a few small butterfly bandages on her forehead, one on her cheek and a few other bandages, but she was lucky to have gotten off so easy. her family was still torn apart. ❝ how’re you holding up after everything? ❞ she asked quietly. she’d avoided the house for a long time, hoping to avoid some of the turmoil. but of course, she was part of it so she would have to deal with it. so it was better to face it head on. ❝ i wanted to apologize, for everything… i know it’s probably going to take a lot more than just an apology, but i thought it would be a start… ❞

In February of 1970, the Yale Law School Film Society honored Russ Meyer with its first-ever film festival. The two-day retrospective showcased eight of his films and included a panel on sex in American cinema. Meyer attended the festival with several of his actors, including Beyond the Valley of the Dolls star Cynthia Myers and Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! star Haji.

4x22 Turn It Upside Down  Inside the script with Director Lucy Liu!

“[Turn It Upside Down focuses] on the emotional undertones of the characters rather than the procedural aspect of a case.”

“It always gives a freedom to the actors, allowing them to lead the scenes and giving them a sense of trust that their process and their performance outshine anything else that could be happening with lighting or anything else that is technically involved. My priority is always performance over anything else.”

“I find that the first reading of a script for me always helps conduct what is the truest and the most instinctual reaction, emotionally and even visually for what will be the final result. These are notes I make and transfer to the newer drafts. I keep technical and emotional notes together — especially when you only have eight days to film something. I don’t waste time on wide shots etc.”

“If I know the most important thing in the scene is for the audience to connect to this character in this very moment, I will sometimes forgo a master all together and just shoot close ups or extreme close ups. This keeps the scenes fresh for them and also helps them move through the day with more energy.”

Lucy Liu confirms she’s been asked to direct another episode next season.

He was tired. Tired and stressed. And fucking hungry.

What was originally scheduled for an eight hour filming day had quickly made a turn for the worst when the director had expressed again and again his dissatisfaction with each and every take. There were only so many ways an actor could recite the same, “This is operation suicide,” line before it would lose its hilarity. Chris was almost certain the new director was purposely being a dick for not appreciating a directing suggestion Chris had offered up the previous day, because it was now fifteen hours later – seven hours overtime.

“Fuckin’ asshole,” he cursed to himself, climbing the steps to his trailer. He was ready to crash after inhaling whatever he could scrounge up, hoping Josh was able to stock up the fridge before he had to hastily head off set to do whatever mysterious urgent matter he had to attend to.
