This week’s Documentaries To Check Out

When The Levees Broke

Spike Lee out did himself with this truly honest documentary. It’s the kind of thing where it had to be made and you had to hear from the people who lived through it all. Many documentaries are out about Katrina and what happened in New Orleans but this gives you ever angle. From black people to white people, politicians and media coverage. So much went on and so many lives were lost for no reason at all.

The Seven Five

I heard about this documentary from an episode of The Combat Jack Show. From there I went and hunted it down on Showtime. The life of Michael Dowd, a former NYPD officer who was completely corrupt, plays like a crazy movie. It’s truly the stuff people make shows about, the stories they told were like lost seasons of The Shield. Money and Power corrupts and this documentary proves that point.

Reel Injun

This documentary examines Native Americans in film. One crazy thing you learn is the more popular people weren’t even Native Americans at all. The fantasy or stereotype of the savages with feathers in their headbands. A deep look at the lives and lies surrounding a civilization.
