07.04.06DVD I'm a really big fan of Errol Morris and this is one of his last movies I've yet to watch... plus with the fourth and all I figure a movie that actually did change the real world might be something cool to watch. The movie presents such a clear picture of the murder of this police officer in Dallas and the wrongful conviction of the guy they arrested for it that he was actually released from his life sentence after it came out. It's not often that a piece of entertainment so definitively takes an effect on those that see it... it's pretty cool when it happens though, even if it doesn't involve the law (like undershirt sales dropping after Clark Gable in It Happened One Night or even "The Rachel" haircut thanks to Anniston in Friends). This movie, like every other Morris doc I've seen, is very interesting and filled with moments of humor, heart, and emotion. It all seems very very true as well... yet his style and structure are very different from most of the docs out there today. I think Vernon, Florida is still my favorite of his but this one didn't disappoint.
