Waco - mini-series


#1

anyone else seen this yet? mini-series based on the waco seige in 1993

don’t think it’s got a UK release date yet but it’s worth seeking out as it’s great


#2

yeah i’m gonna check this out. heard some mixed things about it but michael shannon is great and i’m interested in the story anyway.


#3

Is Michael Shannon playing David Koresh??

That really could be worth watching if so.


#4

nah he’s the FBI negotiator who deals with koresh

that said the guy who plays koresh, taylor kitsch, is pretty good


#5

Have you all heard this excellent concept album?


#6

Yeah Shannon’s probs a bit too old to play Koresh but that’d be fucking awesome.

Still worth a watch I’d say. Waco’s fascinating and devastating : (


#7

Bit rubs but also not too bad. Will probably watch to the end. In Into Waco and stuff like that


#8

The Dogbowl classic:


#9

watched this, enjoyed it on the whole. reckon i’m gonna go down the rabbit hole on waco stuff now


#10

How much Boards of Canada will feature I wonder?


#11

I’m always interested in this kind of thing. Pretty sure with a few different choices I could easily have ended up joining a cult as a younger chap.


#12

Hoax


#13

Read an article about Jonestown recently.

918 people died! Crazy.


#14

just from you reading an article?

:drum::drum:-CHH


#15

Yeah Jonestown is the properly terrifying one. The pictures of the aftermath cannot be unseen.


#16

This book is amazing if you want to read up about it


#17

great doc about jonestown on youtube, has interviews with survivors, his kid, the works. really scary. he started out with such good intentions, too.


#18

not to mention direct footage of the attack at the helicopter


#19

debateable


#20

don’t get me wrong, i’m not trying to make him out to be a tragic figure, he’s an absolute horror show. i just think maybe for 5 minutes at the start of the sixties he did have genuine dreams of a better world to come.

altho probably he was just faking this, tbh.
