Watch This With Rick Ramos

On this week's episode of WatchThis w/RickRamos, Ibrahim & I continue our discussion on the Academy Award winning documentarian (THE FOG OF WAR: ELEVEN LESSONS FROM THE LIFE OF ROBERT S. McNAMARA - 2003) Errol Morris. This week we tackle his groundbreaking study of Randall Dale Adams, a man wrongly imprisoned for murdering a Dallas Police Officer during a routine traffic stop, THE THIN BLUE LINE (1987). We also look at his profile of British theoretical physicist, Stephen Hawkings, A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME (1992). Finally, we take a look at Morris' directorial debut, GATES OF HEAVEN (1978), a film that profiles a pet cemetery in Palo Alto, California and the inhabitants of this small town, their love for their pets and their (sometimes) strange and quirky ways.  It's a film that critic Roger Ebert called one of the greatest films ever made. This is an episode that goes rather long, so be prepared for that.  All in all, we had a great time recording it.  Thanks for listening and - as always - thank you for your continued support.
