I was just sick for the past 3 days and found that I had nothing to watch because I’d already powered through 10 episodes of Making A Murderer.
Since I was on a true crime story spree, I found a list of other documentaries, similar to the story of Steven Avery that were just as good and thought I’d share them…
1. The Central Park Five – “A documentary that examines the 1989 case of five black and Latino teenagers who were convicted of raping a white woman in Central Park. After having spent between 6 and 13 years each in prison, a serial rapist confessed to the crime.” – IMDb
2. The Thin Blue Line – “A film that successfully argued that a man was wrongly convicted for murder by a corrupt justice system in Dallas County, Texas.” – IMDb
3. The Seven Five – “Meet the dirtiest cop in NYC history. Michael Dowd stole money and dealt drugs while patrolling the streets of 80s Brooklyn.” – IMDb
4. Brothers Keeper – “Under questioning by police, Delbert appears to have waived his rights and signed a confession, but this film suggests that he may not have been competent to do so. The film explores possible motives for the crime, from ‘mercy-killing’ (Bill was ill at the time) to progressively more bizarre hypotheses. It also shows how residents of the rural community of Munnsville, NY rallied to the support of one of their own residents (previously considered a social outcast), against what they felt were intrusive ‘big-city’ police and District Attorney tactics.” – IMDb
5. Capturing The Friedmans – “Documentary on the Friedmans, a seemingly typical, upper-middle-class Jewish family whose world is instantly transformed when the father and his youngest son are arrested and charged with shocking and horrible crimes.” – IMDb
