So-so, but loved the filming.... Well done, fascinating documentary The Celia character..... After seeing Devil All The Time and reading the novel.... Trump's BFF!!

I was never trying to argue this case with you, only trying to point out that there was a very compelling item that really should have settled this matter once and for all years ago (there actully was a couple of more big developments as well). And like I mentioned before, I like Errol Morris because his brain processes information differently, it's just too bad he became involved in this case <spoiler>and when they showed him the final interview of Heleana Stoeckley it was clear he had never seen that video before and it knocked him way back on his heels. With that and the hair found in his wife's hand that MacDonald said was not his and the dismantling of the Deputy US Marshall's claims, were new pieces of additional evidence. But what really gets me is how the hell that Stoeckley interview didn't put all of his appeals to rest years ago. The documentary was never clear why that interview was not widely seen</spoiler> As for Morris' quote it actually is an important one. For example, take the painting of Gen George Washington's crossing of the Delaware - that image is not real, but that "narrative" has become reality. Or take the famous photograph of the iron workers sitting on the iron beam having lunch in NY - the narrative of that photo, too, has become reality, when its true origin is much different (I can't recall the exact history, but the true story of it is different from what it indicates). And this is what Morris means by when the narrative becomes the reality. And I think his argument of what one "knows" and "thinks" is important, too, and too often is kind of missed a bit when it comes to the profound difference of the two. Pass along your thoughts when you do if you don't mind... Either keep watching or not, I'm just letting you know that there is something that happens that should end a ton of speculation. Keep watching.......I like Errol Morris, mainly because on many other things he has an ablilty to see things from a completely different perspective - his mind works a different way when it comes to processing information, especially imagery. Still, keep watching - something happens at the very end that more or less puts these murders to rest. Tim74, my point was to illustrate the treatment of both First Lady's - recall, the right wing once went nuts because Michelle Obama wore a sleeveless garment in the Oval Office. So here we have a First Lady that refused to recite the Pledge and was caught on audiotape making some shocking statements and it has me wondering about the sincerity of the outrage of the right wing. I know it; it's like people just don't like slow-developing shows and get bored too often if there isn't an explosion every few minutes.. Right, really.....a sterling example of why some people should be banned from keyboards or touch screens..... <spoiler>What I took away from the episode was here you have a real arrogant jerk that turns out to be innocent and how everyone felt he was guilty, even his attorney. I wonder if her response was related to how he avoided the charge while she thought he was guilty. I also wonder if the writers/producers purposely picked a charismatic and likable actor by reputation/image, causing the viewer to struggle with his or her attitude toward the likable actor while the role demands the actor to be dislikable. What I took away from the police role was how the main character was right and how the detective was not going to apologize for doing his job, especially since he thought Harrington was guilty - and if I recall correctly, up to this point he didn't know the reason why no charges were being pressed, as with Harrington's attorney.</spoiler> I've been trying to find Don't' Be Afraid of The Dark streaming, but there is one reason I don't want to watch it as an adult and that is because I don't know if it will stand up as it did when I saw it as a child. I'm afraid it will lose that "magic" it had way back then. I remember the scene in Salem's Lot when Geoffrey Lewis jumps down in the grave....one of the creepiest scenes.... View all replies >
