The Thin Blue Line (1988)

An American documentary directed by Errol Morris.
Two guys in a car shot a cop. Everyone argues over which one did it.
This was pretty standard of court and crime docs. None of the interviews were very impressive and the B-roll was so cheesy and stereotypical that it hurt to watch. The plot followed the timeline of the night of the murder and the duration of the court case. I could instantly tell who was lying just by looking at them. The video looked really high quality for 1988. It's a shame they didn't do anything better with it. Great product placement, by the way. The audio was all great because it was mostly single interviews. Overall, an unimpressive and mediocre film. I rate it tolerable.
