The Thin Blue Line

HD

Errol Morris's unique documentary dramatically re-enacts the crime scene and investigation of a police officer's murder in Dallas, Texas. Briefly, a drifter (Randall Adams) ran out of gas and was picked up by a 16-year-old runaway (David Harris). Later that night, they drank some beer, smoked some marijuana, and went to the movies. Then, their stories diverged. Adams claimed that he left for his motel, where he was staying with his brother, and went to sleep. Harris, however, said that they were stopped by police late that night, and Adams suddenly shot the officer approaching their car. The film shows the audience the evidence gathered by the police, who were under extreme pressure to clear the case. It strongly makes a point that the circumstantial evidence was very flimsy. In fact, it becomes apparent that Harris was a much more likely suspect and was in the middle of a crime spree, eventually ending up on Death Row himself for the later commission of other crimes. Morris implies that the DA's and the judge's desire for the death penalty in this case (for which Harris would have been ineligible because of his youth) made Adams a scapegoat on whom to pin this heinous crime....

Review

The Thin Blue Line is one of the best movies released in year 1988. I've seen many movies in my life, over 10 grand in total... This movie literally has everything. This is a movie you can watch online with any crowd of people, and everyone will enjoy it at least a little. The real power of this production is an acting game of actor and others, that is amazing. An movie highly valued for me. Easily to say, this movie has one of the best dialogues ever. I did not find this movie elsewhere, so I decided to upload it to this website.... Show more
