Just watched The Price of Gold. Since I was a kiddo at the time, I really didn't know a lot of the story other than the attack. Interesting to get more of it.

A look at small town american poverty



 :tocry

I caught this on Netflix today.  It's a very good documentary and anyone who grew up in a small town or know people who grew up in a small town can relate very well to the people in this documentary.  Although their situations are terrible and a display of the difficulties of social mobility in these towns, it was much worse 10-20 years ago when meth was ravaging small towns like this.  Now the preferred small town drug are legal opiates and if they can't afford them, heroin/fentanyl.  At first that might not seem like an improvement but now drug addicts just nod off in their crumbling houses instead of meth induced psychosis because they've been up for three straight nights in a row.

Docs I watched recently:

Samsara: I've been to watch this forever. It sorta lived up to my expectations. It's non-narrative and non-verbal. It tries to explore themes such as wonders of the world and human society. Everything is exaggerated for effect and it works when it's not too contrived and unsubtle. 3.5/5

The Search for General Tso: I enjoyed this more than I expected. Initially I thought it was only going to cover the history of the General Tso Chicken dish, but it thankfully covered the historical context of Chinese American cuisine. 4/5

What Happened, Miss Simone?: This one broke my heart. I'm a recent big fan of Nina Simone but up until this doc I never looked into her backstory or the context of any politically fueled songs. It covers her rise (up until her civil rights association) and fall (continued paranoia bolstered by her mental illness, dishing/receiving physical and emotional abuse, etc.) 5/5 if you're a fan.

Somm: About 4 sommelier candidates on their quest to take the test. An interesting look into wine culture, specifically this area I never thought existed... and how douchebags are sometimes rewarded. Just kidding. Maybe. 3.5/5

How to Die in Oregon: I heard about this so much, and I finally watched it. It revolves around the Death With Dignity Act, used by terminally ill patients, and follows the lives of few people invested in it. It goes without saying that it will test your views on assisted suicide (and whether you want to continue using that term)... and also that it will make you cry. 4/5

The Circle: I'm not sure how many straight people will be interested in important piece of LGBT history, but I thought this one was a very strong production. It's not strictly a documentary, but more of a Docudrama. Real people retelling the story of the 1940s titular gay publication from Zurich, broken by a solid cast reenacting the events that culminated in how the mag was used as a scapegoat for a series of murders during that era. It's possibly my first view of European LGBT ordeals from the 20th century. 5/5 if you're gay

Bad Johnson: Just kidding. Fun fact tho: the writer, Jeff Tetreault, is a big, hot, douchy, straight go-go dancer with a very NSFW tumblr. 0/5 movie. 5/5 tumblr

The hardest part is that a lot of the girls still show affection for him.  Hell even the 11 year cousin says 'well he is my grandpa so I will always love him'.   Its really disturbing.

Apocalypse: WW2 is pretty good. It's all color or colorized footage and told from a French perspective which is refreshing. There are a couple inaccuracies and the American version is narrated by Martin Sheen who cannot pronounce "Wermacht," but otherwise great stuff. It's six parts and is on Netflix and apparently YouTube:

Grew up with Oxycontin over prescription.  I had no idea that over prescribing opiates was a recent thing. 

Jesus, Drug courts.  You give away your rights to a trail if you agree to these things.  WTF.

Tried watching The Look of Silence, but may not be able to finish it. It's a look back at the "communist purge" in Indonesia, largely centered around a man whose brother was killed in it. The men who murdered hundreds in his village are old, still in power, wealthy, and appear completely unrepentant about cooperatively mass-murdering a huge portion of their village. When questioned, they seem to casually threaten that just asking questions could get the interviewer killed. Documentary shows how winners write the history books, in this case continuing to educate the current generation of children by demonizing the mythical communists.

On the other side of the coin (Or COIN) you have the excellent S21 The Red Khmer Death Machine, which is equally chilling. It's not about old cronies but rather on the no name prison guards of what was a death camp (only 7 known survivors out of the thousands brought here). A former inmate (and recently deceased painter) make them reenact the thing in the camp abandoned premises. A discussion between one of the former guards and his parents give the same impression that nobody is too eager to reflect on that in the rural areas.

COIN is the abbreviation for Counter-Insurgency, which is (or was ?) one the recently popular label for irregular warfare.

In 2009 Michael Paterniti wrote a great article about lack of desire to confront the history of the Khmer Rouge http://www.gq.com/story/cambodia-khmer-rouge-michael-paterniti

As you may have guessed with the article, Vann Nath is the painter I mention for the documentary.
