The Thin Blue Line

An extraordinary film that expands all notions of film documentaries as director Errol Morris ('A Brief History of Time') personally investigates the case of a Texan convict sentenced for murder. He builds a very strong case for the innocence of Death Row inmate Randall Adams while getting the guilty party to confess. A haunting and surreal non-fiction feature film with a stirring musical score by Philip Glass.
