    • Here's one that comes out tonight on HBO. I don't know why I'm so drawn to documentaries like this one that involve trials, but I must watch.

    • Okay, I watched episode 1. For HBO, you have to wait a week for each new episode.

      It reminds me of my favorite documentary, The Thin Blue Line. It's so crazy that when you have someone who knows he's innocent, he doesn't try hard on his trial. I don't know why I watch these; they are so painful for everyone involved and who knows if we incarcerate the right person? The prosecutors are elected, so they need to deliver convictions to the public, the victim's family demands justice, but what if you just don't know?

    • This is one of the best documentaries I've ever watched and perfect for right now:

      Deeyah Kahn is a Muslim woman who grew up in Norway and faced the anti-immigration sentiment there. She took her camera to the darkest corners of the alt right and met them, interviewed them, listened with respect, and I think came away understanding them.
