You just finished Making a Murderer and you need your true crime fix. Now what? Your best bet is Errol Morris’ seminal 1988 documentary. The story focuses on wrongfully accused drifter Randall Adams, who was railroaded onto death row by false testimony and an overzealous prosecutor. The Thin Blue Line gets its edge not only from interviews with the real killer, David Harris, but also from Morris’ brilliant use of dramatization, close-ups, editing, and truly mastering the documentary form into his now unmistakable style. Making a Murderer may send you looking for more true crime, but The Thin Blue Line will also have you hungry to find another Morris film (I recommend The Fog of War and Standard Operating Procedure).
