The Thin Blue Line

HD

Errol Morris's unique documentary dramatically re-enacts the crime scene and investigation of a police officer's murder in Dallas, Texas. Briefly, a drifter (Randall Adams) ran out of gas and was picked up by a 16-year-old runaway (David Harris). Later that night, they drank some beer, smoked some marijuana, and went to the movies. Then, their stories diverged. Adams claimed that he left for his motel, where he was staying with his brother, and went to sleep. Harris, however, said that they were stopped by police late that night, and Adams suddenly shot the officer approaching their car. The film shows the audience the evidence gathered by the police, who were under extreme pressure to clear the case. It strongly makes a point that the circumstantial evidence was very flimsy. In fact, it becomes apparent that Harris was a much more likely suspect and was in the middle of a crime spree, eventually ending up on Death Row himself for the later commission of other crimes. Morris implies that the DA's and the judge's desire for the death penalty in this case (for which Harris would have been ineligible because of his youth) made Adams a scapegoat on whom to pin this heinous crime....

The whole The Thin Blue Line is easy to remember. I was very impressed when I watched it for the first time. The Thin Blue Line is literally everything, an movie you can watch online with your friends or a random group of people, and everyone will enjoy it. It is a brilliant tense movie from the beginning to the end. The story is really solid, the pacing is great, and all of the actors gave great performances. And, as it turned out, Errol Morris's film passed the test of time victorious. No better place than this streaming site exist for free movies and tv shows so I added this movie here.... Show more
