Full on pandemic binge mode led me to Netflix's Manhunt Deadly Games



Its 10 episodes cover's the whole Atlanta bombing, Richard Jewel, Eric Rudolph saga.

I thought it was very well done until they got into the militia in the Nantahala -- they had enough to make it interesting without all this fictional involvement protecting and then joining in on the manhunt for Eric.

So after watching that I followed up with Clint Eastwood's movie, Richard Jewel



now I'm a Hollywood expert on the subject. At the end of the NF series it mentioned the Eric wrote a 243 page account of how he evaded the FBI for five and a half years. A quick search revealed that it's online as a pdf.

It's an interesting read and covers the ground that he traveled, camped and hid out in, as well as his early life growing up. It is filled with his political and moral views but those chapters can be skimmed over or ignored.

I converted the PDF to mobi to read on the kindle... pm if you want that format

Just finished Eric Rudolph's fictional account of his crimes and life "on the run"

It's interesting for a while but after the first 6 months his tale begins to become unbelievable.

I skipped over most of his political and moral writings as they aim to justify his crime.

We just finished a good movie/series run.
I can recommend:
The 2018 A Star Is Born. Bradley Cooper directs and stars. Does his own singing, too.Lady Gaga is awesome.



The Queens Gambit on Netflix. Season one, 7 episodes.
The story, the acting, the music, Anya Taylor-Joy's eyes. Really, really good.



The Outpost on Netflix. Based on Jake Tapper's book. Holy shit. You will flinch more than a few times. And drink.
The Bulwark podcast has a great episode with Jake talking about his interest in the story, the book , the filming, and his relationship with the soldiers and their families. Really, really good listen.

Many thanks Doug.

Here is one that I discovered on Netflix.  Black '47.  Wonderful movie!  I've watched it twice and will watch again to pick up on the minutia.

OK - this one is a little out there and not in the same ball park as most (all?) of the previously mentioned excellent movies, but try "Soul" on Disney+ if you get it.  This isn't a kid's movie IMHO, but a thought provoking and musically cool way to spend some time.  Like Bagger Vance was really about the Bhagavad Gita, and Ground Hog day was about Karma Yoga, ths one examines the Bardo for all you Tibetan Book of the Dead fans.  Not a fan?  That's OK, I think you will find this unique movie interesting at the very least and worth the time.

Or not.  You hold the controller after all.  My $.02.

Om Shanti Shanti Shanti...   ;D

I assumed Netflix would run out of good ideas eventually, but not this soon.

New film chronicles environmental 'outlaw' Ken Sleight's fight to restore Glen Canyon
"The Unfinished Fight of Seldom Seen Sleight" will be screened for free online Tuesday.


>>>When river runner, wilderness guide and legendary environmental provocateur Ken Sleight tells his life story, he likes to start at the beginning.
"I'm a farm boy from Paris," he often says. "Paris, Idaho."

Sleight grew up in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but when he uses words like "temples," "paradise" or "heaven" now, at the age of 91, it refers to an earthly fold of the Colorado Plateau, a place he first visited in 1955, named Glen Canyon.

As one of the few commercial outfitters to guide rafts through Glen Canyon prior to its submersion under Lake Powell in the 1960s, Sleight remains haunted by the lost beauty of a place that few non-native Americans experienced as a flowing river.

"I don't understand human thinking — to destroy temples, cathedrals," Sleight says in the opening sequence of a new film by Sageland Media, "The Unfinished Fight of Seldom Seen Sleight."

https://www.sltrib.com/news/2021/01/10/new-film-chronicles/

"The Unfinished Fight of Seldom Seen Sleight'' will be screened for free at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 12, by the Utah Film Center. Doug Fabrizio of KUER's Radio West will moderate a question-and-answer session after the screening featuring filmmakers and others. The film will only be available for viewers who tune in during the livestream event. Visit https://www.utahfilmcenter.org/event/the-unfinished-fight-of-seldom-seen-sleight/ for more information and to pre-order the livestream.
