This year’s Festival seems to have sneaked up on me, or maybe I just didn’t get an invite to the opening night cheese and wine evening this year?
This years top 5 TDB picks for 2021 are:
5 – The New Corporation: The Unfortunately Necessary Sequel
The 17 year sequel to the groundbreaking The Corporation. It’s way worse than it was.
4 – MLK/FBI
The FBI were far crueler and far more spiteful towards Martin Luthor King Jr than is acknowledged. Prepare to want to punch white supremacy afterwards.
3 – The Garden of Evil
It never made sense that Sir Peter Blake was murdered. The reasons seemed so vague and you always felt there was something else going on, so this crime documentary looking at the conspiracy by criminal polluting interests to kill Blake is fascinating and only serves to build the legacy of Blake.
2 – A Glitch in the Matrix
The idea that we are living in a computer simulation fascinated me and the psychology and power of that idea over people who are convinced of it is even more fascinating.
1 – By Rook Or Left Hook – the story of Chessboxing
Always throw in a documentary that is a total curve ball. It’s a documentary about Chessboxing – what’s not to love?
