Prophet's Prey (2015)


Director:
Amy Berg

Kolovođa i vrhovni sveštenik Warren Jeffs, prorok "Church of Latter Day Saints" (poznatiji i kao Mormoni) tolko je ogrezao u zlostavljanju maloletnica da ga je čak i FBI turio na listu most wanted. Šta se zapravo desilo, i šta je ovog bogougodnog i povučenog čoveka, čestitog domaćina, nagnalo da se ovako razbahati.


"When Warren Jeffs rose to Prophet of the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints, he took control of a religion with a history of polygamous and underage marriage. In a short time, Warren managed to expand these practices and the power of his position in unprecedented ways. He bridged the gap between sister wives and ecclesiastically rape, befuddling the moral compass of his entire congregation. The film examines Warren Jeffs' life and shows how he became a worshipped and adored Prophet. Warren has a devout following numbering in the tens of thousands - many of whom would give their life at any moment with just one word from the Prophet. Despite a trail of abuse and ruined lives, Warren has maintained his grip on power."

JFK: The Smoking Gun (2013)


Director:
Malcolm Mcdonald

"Seventy-five percent of the American people still refuse to believe the official story of President John F. Kennedy's death. They do not think he was killed by a lone gunman but by a mysterious cabal that somehow conspired to have him killed. How can this be? How can a crime this famous, witnessed and investigated by so many, remain a mystery? This is what veteran Australian police detective Colin McLaren is determined to find out. JFK: The Smoking Gun follows the forensic cold-case investigation McLaren conducted over four painstaking years, taking us back to that tragic day in Dallas at Dealey Plaza where the shooting took place, to Parkland Hospital where the president was pronounced dead, to the Bethesda Naval Hospital where the autopsy was conducted and to the conclusions of the Warren Commission that have remained controversial to this day. Driven by a seasoned police detective who, thanks to modern technology, finally had access to all the facts and to witness testimony."

Both Worlds: Born with Chronic Paranoid Schizophrenia (2013)


Kako živeti i preživeti paranoidnu shizofreniju. Za sve vas/nas koji nismo baš upućeni kako sve to izgleda i o kojim siptomima se radi evo prilike da makar privirimo. Imao sam priliku svojevremeno da se susretnem sa osobama koje boluju od ove teške bolesti ali su svi bili na lekovima tako da se nisu razlikovali od normalnih ljudi osim što su bili malko usporeni zbog tih hardkor lekova. Ako sam ikada u životu osećao empatiju, a to se kod mene zaista retko dešava, to je bilo tada kada sam razgovarao sa tim ljudima, jer jedno je obična shizofrenija gde čujete glasove i tako malo halucinirate, a skroz drugo kad se u priču ubaci i paranoja i proganjanje i šta sve ne. Sećam se jednog dečka koji je umislio da mu specijalci opkoljavaju kuću i ulaze na vrata i prozore, samo je mogao da vidi one crvene tačkice od laserskog nišana. Pitao sam ga jel' sad kapira da je to bila samo halucinacija, ali jok, on se i dalje držao te priče iako je bio na lekovima koji bi trebali da blokiraju takve psihoze. Dakle, nema tog psihijatra niti bilo koga koji bi ga uverio u suprotno. To samo pokazuje koliko su te halucinacije stvarnost takvim osobama, uostalom većina vas je gledala odličan film "Shutter Island", tako da taj film nije nikakva fantasy fikcija, to je stvarno tako. Čovek skroz izgubi osećaj šta je halucinacija a šta zbilja.


"Born with chronic paranoid schizophrenia, Charles Steinbach began hallucinating at the age of eight. He was diagnosed as a young adult and made what he calls a 'split-second, conscious decision' to 'become the best schizophrenic he could be.' Today, he is a successful speaker, author, life coach, father, and college student. This film tells his story and asks us to put a face, a name, and a life to a diagnosis."

Myra: The Making of a Monster (2003)


"Until her prison death in 2002, Myra Hindley was recognized as ‘the most hated woman in Britain‘. The public hatred towards her was so intense, that after she was arrested w/ boyfriend Ian Brady in 1966, for the murders & rapes of 5 children, the name ‘Myra’ almost disappeared from UK society.

UK’s Cannel5, ‘Myra: The Making of a Monster’ offers a unique glimpse into Myra’s life through news footage of the crimes, and personal testimonies from her associates & the reporter that worked the story and had to sort through the gory discoveries of the children’s bodies that were buried on the bleak Saddleworth Moor."

Frame 313: The JFK Assassination Theories (2008)


Ovoga vala nikad dosta, pogledao sam bar 15-ak dokumentaraca na zadatu temu i hoću još bre. Da snime još tolko sve bi ih overio. 9/11 je meni mala beba u odnosu na JFK conspiracy teorije. Neće se svi složiti sa mnom ali to i nije poenta. Cela ta priča je tolko dobro režirana da joj se ne nazire kraj pa makar prošlo i preko pola veka od atentata. Ubiše ga bre ko mačku, in the broad daylight što bi rekli anglo-saksonci. Valjda ćemo doživeti ta vremena kada će Ameri konačno otkriti ko je zapravo pravi ubica, a dotle uživajmo u ovim vazda zanimljivim dokumentarcima. Živeli!


"Frame 313 examines several theories that have been offered about who was responsible for the JFK Assassination including the single bullet theory, the CIA/Mafia theory, the Soviet Union/KGB theory, the Mafia hit theory, and the CIA/Anti-Castro theory."

Mind of a Rampage Killer (2013)


"What makes a person walk into a theater or a church or a classroom full of students and open fire? What combination of circumstances compels a human being to commit the most inhuman of crimes? Can science in any way help us understand these horrific events and provide any clues as to how to prevent them in the future?"


The Central Park Five (2012)


Directors:
Ken Burns, Sarah Burns

Ako su vam se svideli "Paradise Lost" i "Making a murderer", valjaće vam vala i ovaj masterpis.


"In 1989, five black and Latino teenagers from Harlem were arrested and later convicted of raping a white woman in New York City's Central Park. They spent between 6 and 13 years in prison before a serial rapist confessed that he alone had committed the crime, leading to their convictions being overturned. Set against a backdrop of a decaying city beset by violence and racial tension, THE CENTRAL PARK FIVE tells the story of that horrific crime, the rush to judgment by the police, a media clamoring for sensational stories and an outraged public, and the five lives upended by this miscarriage of justice."

OC87: The Obsessive Compulsive, Major Depression, Bipolar, Asperger's Movie (2010)


Directors:
Bud Clayman
Glenn Holsten

"Can you make a movie while having mental illness? Bud Clayman is doing it. Will making a documentary about your mental illness change your life?

Soon after college, mental illness interrupted Bud Clayman's dreams of a filmmaking career. Thirty years later, he's making the movie of his life. A story with universal relevance, OC87 is a wildly original film about pain and vulnerability, empowerment, and Bud's quest for belonging.

Throughout his youth, Bud's future was filmmaking. After college in Philadelphia, he headed to Hollywood in search of a break. Instead, he had a breakdown. As mental illness struck, it stuck. When distress and isolation set in, the diagnoses followed. For eight years, Bud lived in a therapeutic community.

Without waiting for his illness to vanish, Bud has reclaimed his quest as a filmmaker. As his camera chronicles the ups and downs of recovery, we also see the experience of what he calls "the fight inside my head." Behind the lens, a parallel journey unfolds as Bud the Director grapples with the challenges of making an incisive, highly personal documentary—a movie that he believes will transform his life.

When problems hit the fan, Bud sometimes feels defeated. More often, he draws strength and skills from therapy, humor, and relationships. Even so, he feels different, and the stigma of mental illness is fierce.

Meanwhile, directing this documentary film stretches Bud in ways that ultimately recast his quest. From the shadows of suffering, a portrait of imperfect courage emerges—a testament to acceptance, change, and hope.

The LA Times hailed OC87 as "uniquely inspiring." The New York Times called it "moving, penetrating" and The New York Post said, "it's easy to cheer his ultimate triumph.""

Who Is the Black Dahlia? (1975)


Director:
Joseph Pevney

Konačno sam iskopao jedan film o Black Dahlia slučaju a koji je zasnovan na stvarnim događajima, za razliku od popularnog De Palminog rada iz 2006. sa Skarlet Johansen koji jeste dobar i zanimljiv ali veze s mozgom nema, dakle radi se o čistoj fikciji. Iako je ovo TV film meni je skroz OK jer prikazuje događaje koji su prethodili ubistvu i kako je tačno tekla policijska istraga jedne od najvećih misterija 20-og veka. Jedina zamerka je da su mogli da nađu malo lepšu glumicu jer Elizabeth Short je bila zaista prelepa devojka, pa samim tim takvo surovo ubistvo i misterija koja ga prati evo već 70 godina zaintrigira čoveka do krajnjih granica. U ovom filmu nećete videti crime scene detalje i pikanterije ali za neupućene tu je vazda google pa možete da potražite te fotke meni najbizarnijeg kasapljenja ikada. Dakle, definitivno se radi o ubistvu ispred svog vremena i skroz nesvakidašnjem ubici koji naravno nikad nije uhvaćen.


"Dramatization of an actual homicide investigation. In 1947 Los Angeles, a police detective tries to solve the shocking and grisly murder of 22-year-old aspiring actress Elizabeth Short, whose nude body was dumped in a lot after being bisected with surgical precision. The detective interviews people who knew Short, who was called "The Black Dahlia" because of the black outfits she wore."

Director:
Jin-pyo Park

Kolko čovek sranja mora da pogleda da bi naleteo na jedan kvalitetan film. Evo jednog pravog, čistokrvnog korejanca. Sve je tu, i crni humor i smotani pubovi i otmica deteta. Po istinitom događaju, skroz na tragu "Memories of murder".


"One day, the only son of famous news anchor HAN Kyung-bae, disappears without a trace. Soon, the kidnapper calls the mother demanding a $100,000 ransom. The police assign a veteran inspector to the case and assemble a top-notch task force to work under his command. But the kidnapper constantly outwits the police and continues calling the parents with yet more instructions for the money drop."

BBC: Russia's Hooligan Army (2017)


"At the 2016 European Championships, violent clashes between Russian and English supporters in Marseille put the spotlight on Russian hooliganism. Russian hooligans injured over 100 English supporters, beating two into a coma, and it raised serious concerns ahead of Russia hosting the 2018 World Cup. Filmmaker Alex Stockley von Statzer travels to Russia to experience the country's football fan culture first hand. Featuring footage filmed in Marseille in 2016, rare interviews with members of some of the most feared firms like the Spartak Gladiators and Orel Butchers, and new footage of an organised fight for wannabe recruits, this show uncovers a world where brutal violence has become a mark of honour and a symbol of newly resurgent Russian masculinity."

Šta je to ljubav a nije feferon


Šta je to ljubav? Ljubav je kad dvoje ne baš tako mladih a situiranih ljudi odluče da se uzmu, da podele taj životni užas na pola, da budu sapatnici. Jer uvek je lakše udvoje. Jedan vodi dete kod lekara, drugi završava papire u opštini, jedan kuva, drugi usisava itd. Neki bi rekli da to nije ljubav no čisto koristoljublje a ja baš tvrdim suprotno. To jeste prava ljubav, jer podeliti patnju sa nekim nije nimalo lako, i to ne možeš baš sa svakim jbga, jer logično neće svako da te trpi. I tako se ljudi udružuju u te bračne zajednice ne bi li im bilo bar malo lakše u životu, jer najgore je kad si sam pa ostariš, pa nema ko te pazi, a ovako možda izrodite i neku decu pa ta deca posle brinu o tebi kada ti partner rikne. Jbga, treba sve to iskalkulisati, jer život nije zajebancija, no jedna jako zajebana rabota. Mora da se planira godinama unapred, i nema tu nikakve spontanosti ko što maštamo. E sad, očigledno je da nismo svi rođeni da živimo u paru, pa tako veliki broj ljudi skroz solira, s tim da ti za takvu opciju ipak treba dobra novčana podloga, jer jedna plata nije isto ko dve, tako da ako si u tom fazonu mora ili da radiš dva posla, ili da ti je plata na zadovoljavajućem nivou, ne bi li ispunio sve te zajebane uslove da budeš skroz nezavisan i svoj.

Nikad u životu nisam živeo u takvim zajednicama, nekako ne mogu da zamislim da mi neko po ceo dan sedi u sobi ili da delimo prostor. Ajde OK, kapiram ono kad imate dva kompa pa kad imaš potrebu da se osamiš a ti fino na net i bukvalno ko da nisi više tu. Al' nije oduvek bilo tako, sećam se kada sam imao jednu curu tamo početkom 2000-tih, i po tri dana bi boravila kod mene, tako da sam imao izuzetno jaku potrebu da budem malo sam, svoj na svome, da me ostavi malko na miru, jer ja jedino mogu da se pravo opustim kada sam skroz solo, a svako duže druženje me čini jako nervoznim i napetim. Ma bukvalno samo što se nisam razdrao: ama bre ženo božija, idi malo svojoj kući bogteubio, teraj me u kurac, imam i ja dušu pobogu - ali njoj to nije smetalo, ona je valjda od malena navikla na te razne zajednice, na konstantnu gužvu jer je još sa 15 godina došla u Beograd da uči škole. Tako da sam bio prinuđen da većinu vremena provedem na netu. I tako, dok je ona šila nekakve haljine na krevetu (studirala je primenjenu) ja sam divljao po raznim forimima te smo se baš lepo sporazumeli, nit je ona mene cimala, nit ja nju, a i nije bila neka brbljiva smaračica sa šupljim pričama. Dakle, svako je radio svoje i svima je bilo potaman.


Druga stvar što se tiče tih odnosa su nežnost i pažnja, i to me oduvek zbunjivalo. Npr. ležite u krevetu i ona hoće da je zagrliš, i ja je zagrlim a ona topla ma ko kaljava peć, baš ono zrači tom nekom energijom, a meni naravno to jako smeta jer ne volim da me neko greje bezveze, i ovako se non stop znojim. A sa druge strane pa kako ću pobogu tako zagrljen spavati, em što me sve žulja, em što se okrećem u krevetu ko na ražnju. Dakle, ja i dan danas tripujem da su one scene iz filmova kad se dvoje bude idilično zagrljeni čista fikcija holivudskog sranja, ali opet kontam da ima i takvih ludi koji to vole i koji se ne cimaju toliko u snu, ali ipak mislim da su u velikoj manjini. Takođe, još od malih nogu nisam podnosio da me bilo ko grli i gnjavi, sećam se samo keve i ćaleta, bukvalno sam bežao od njih kad hoće da me zagrle, a o drugoj rodbini da ne pričam. Šta me koji kurac pritiskaš, ajde OK ono kad se dugo nismo videli pa zagrliš nekog od srca, ali to konstantno gnjavljenje je meni žešći užas. Pa tako kad mi cura sva raspilavljena kaže - zagrli me, ja je odradim al' iskreno preko kurca, jer to nije moja priča. Imao sam dve ozbiljne veze u životu, prvu od 1998. do 2000. a drugu 2000-2006, i sa obe cure sam u startu napravio dil da ako budemo ikada živeli zajedno u svom stanu, da kreveti mooooraju da budu razdvojeni, jer te fore kao bračni krevet, to me zajebi, jer pamtim kako je to izgledalo čak i na ovom mom kolosalnom, znači morao sam da se zgrbim u ćošku i da ne mrdam, jer kako bi malo odskočio naleteo bi na ovu furunu. Čak sam se i istrenirao tokom godina da sam bukvalno spavao u toj jednoj jedinoj pozi a bez da se pomeram, dok se ova bahato širila, jebe se njoj što ja ne mogu da se opustim u svom rođenom krevetu. E, baš zato smo se i dogovarali da kupimo dva i da fino svako kulira u svom miru i spokoju, a da se tucaš falabogu možeš i na frižideru ili veš mašini, koji će ti mrtvi bračni krevet, jebo te on da te jebo?


Znam, ovo sad zvuči ko da ja kenjam i izvoljevam, da sam samoživ i slično, al' brate oću tih svojih 3-4 metra kvadratna privatnosti i to ne dam ma ni za šta na svetu. Pa jbte, čak i po srpskim zatvorima imaš pravo na svoja 2 metra, i što onda ne bi imao takvu privilegiju i na slobodi, zar ne? Ne cimam te, ne cimaj me, i ja mislim da je to fer, da je to poštovanje, tolerancija i razumevanje, ljubav jednom rečju...
