I Am Not Your Negro - Got fucked over by Cineworld not showing their 25 mins worth of ads and trailers before this so missed the first 10 mins or so which is very annoying given I presumed it setup the source of text that the voiceover was coming from and I was wondering throughout what the timeframe of the source material was. Despite that this is obviously an extremely urgent and vital piece of filmmaking and it hit’s like a tonne of bricks when it intersperses the old footage with the modern day stuff.
OJ: Made in America - Finished this over the weekend as well and it’s a truly astonishing piece of work. All the groundwork laid out (quite slowly at times) in the first two parts is absolutely vital for painting the picture for the absolute clusterfuck that was the trial and subsequent events. Familiarity with all the outcomes doesn’t make it any less compelling either, it’s a phenomenal social documentary and you should watch it if you haven’t already.
