I watched The Thin Blue Line this weekend. I liked it for multiple reasons: the story is of course one of them, the soundtrack is another one. Both are great and sad in many ways. There are many questions to ask about what happened to Adams, but I’ve been struggling with a particular one: why wasn’t his brother interviewed? Why did he not testify?
Anyway, in the end probably his testimony wouldn’t have changed anything. That’s the saddest part about the need for justice/punishment that sent Adams to prison and that almost killed him.
As usual, someone else already asked that question (and many others) and wrote a long and compelling article about the documentary. I can leave this post as it is, without worrying much about its length or lack of substance. At least I’m starting to write again here.
