Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father

A guy's best friend dies and he makes a documentary in his honor since they loved making movies as kids. Only on the way of making it the guy discovers some shit about his friend's life, how he dies and so much more wild shit goes down during the making. I won't spoil it and I suggest not looking it up before watching it. It's on Netflix btw.

This shit left me in tears and never wanting to watch it again. It's great but it leaves you so fucked up on the inside by the end.

Just finished watching this. I'm left with two comments;

How the fuck did people think he was a 16 year old? Like ignoring the family because of obv reasons, but he had a full shadow of a bear, a strong ass jaw and his eyes were obviously that of an older person. Hell, I even thought in the photos and videos he looked fucking 35. And my other comment is the whole sketchy family thing. I wouldn't take anything what he says at face value at all. He genuinely pissed me off the entire documentary and I had no sympathy for him. I do believe the family was involved in the kid's disappearance, especially the mother. I think the sister knew something happened but never questioned it (look at the way she was willing to avoid asking him any questions) and the mom either saw something happen or was an active participant. The brother was definitely involved. I don't think they murdered him, or at least not on purpose or something.

Either way, great documentary that really pissed me off (in a good way).

No. 96474

Here's my batshit theory:

I think that he parents/a family member actually did kill the son. They reported him missing, and played the "sad family" card, and miraculously got away with it. They continue to love their lives, thinking they got away with murder until they get a call saying their son is found. Now, despite the fact that this son has bleached hair and looks 35, they have to play along, because if they question his identity then the authorities would obviously investigate the imposter, and probably dig up some dirt on the original crime.

So I don't think the family ever really believed that the imposter was their son, I think they had to "believe it" to protect themselves.

If you watched the whole programme in full you would understand that it wasn't pro eugenics. It was showin the history of the British Empire (mainly) use of eugenics and how America was a huge supporter to the extent where they actually funded some of the original eugenics outlets in Nazi Germany.

In Britain we are rarely taught of our historic crimes and racism. In no way was it "pro hitler" but instead exposing the reality of how Britain and other such empires be they American or European had so much land.

It's up on netflix right now and it's a great documentary that really explains and explores some of the biggest issues in our society right now.

No. 97588

As a side note though, some of the things in this documentary should be taken with a grain of salt, as with every other doc ever but sometimes people tend to believe that 100% what they see in documentaries are true.

I know, I know. You probably think this doc is going to be torture to get through. It's about the history of corporations, how they came to be and how they operate. They examine them like a psychiatrist would examine a mentally ill person, since they are considered a person by the law. This movie changed my outlook on the world in a profound way.

When i was searching for documentaries online to watch, I accidentally came across one about a cannibal who shot a woman and ate her starting with her ass and got off free and they showed pictures of her corpse and I feel sick and kind of put off from looking for documentaries now

Yeah that guy. He's seriously fucked in the head. I understand why he got off with no repercussions (government refused to give papers) but I definitely don't agree with it. He's dangerous and even admitted it and should be kept away from the general public

He's so gross and such a dumbass narcissist. I wanna see him old, weak, with no teeth, and stuck in a home being looked after by women who taunt him with the fact that he can't do anything to them anymore. Feed him vegan mush so he can't enjoy taste, stuck with himself grown old and pathetic and hating it

Don't know if Intervention counts but I've been binge watching them since the season premiere last night. Watching Jennifer struggle with spitting out her food and injecting pain meds in front of her children while her daughter painted a tea set was horrifying.

No. 120126

I always liked Intervention.

If anyone is in Canada look up The Fifth Estate and DocZone put out by CBC. They're all 40ish minute investigative documentaries and can be found on Youtube. I like them for background noise while I'm drawing.

I've attached one of my favourite Fifth Estates but there's tons of good ones in lighter tones. This one is pretty fucked up and frustrating to watch.

>CAS fails Young Child back in 2006 and then hides behind a cloud of secrecy

>When Toronto emergency workers arrived at an east-end Toronto home early on the morning November 30, 2002, the house was dark. They knocked twice before a woman, Elva Bottineau, answered the door and directed them to the kitchen. What they found there was shocking. Lying on the table was the emaciated, lifeless body of Bottineau's five-year-old grandson Jeffrey Baldwin. Firefighters and paramedics tried in vain to resuscitate him.

>More than two decades earlier, another child had died in Elva Bottineau's care and both Bottineau and Kidman had convictions for child abuse. Despite the fact that this information was contained in their own files, the CCAS failed to check them before they endorsed the court-ordered placement of Jeffrey and his siblings with their grandparents.

>In fact, the CCAS had intervened off and on in the Bottineau/Kidman family for decades. The CCAS had removed two of Bottineau's children from a previous marriage from her care in the late 1970s after the Society discovered they were being severely abused in her home by Kidman. And yet, remarkably, only a few years later, Bottineau was working as a CCAS-supported day care provider.

Secrets of Sugar is lighter in tone and about sugar obviously. It's on Youtube. Another one I liked was the Boy Who Should Have Lived, about a 12 (or maybe 11) year old boy who ended up hanging himself after the mental health system spectacularly failed him. I wish social services were better funded here in Canada. It happened in Ontario which is surprising.

Louis Theroux is also really good. I'm sure you guys are familiar with him already, but if not check out his LA Stories. I loved City of Dogs.

Speaking of dogs, The Champions on Netflix made me cry. I fucking love dogs. It's about the pit bulls that were rescued from Vick's fighting ring. For some reason I also like the British series Dogs: Their Secret Lives. Light hearted and sort of like… dog intervention for dogs with behaviour problems. Like separation anxiety, obesity, and all sorts of strange behaviours I've never seen before. One doggo would shake every time she left the house. There was a super fat lab who would eat literally EVERYTHING. Her rescue family had to watch her closely all the time because the crazy old thing would even try to eat dirt.

Guilty pleasure of mine is also Animal Cops. It's on Youtube, about humane society workers rescuing animals from shitty owners. Lots of animal horders in it. I remember one poor German Shepard was so neglected his claws had grown into his footpads. It's sad because a lot of the animals are so sweet, but there's usually happy endings… Usually.

I love documentaries, I'll try to think of some others I liked later since they're all I really watch.

Also sorry for double post but seconding the suggestion for Dear Zachary. That one mindfucked me.

I'm not sure if it's still on there, but I watched How to Die in Oregon the same night I watch Dear Zachary. Very depressing night. Anyway I highly recommend Oregon as well.

I've watched Intervention since it first started way back when. My mom and I would always watch it on Sunday nights, the episode that always stuck out for me was the one with Christy, she seemed like the craziest person they had. I wonder what she's up to these days, last I heard she has a baby.

I was reading about lost media and found something interesting about a lady named Amanda Feilding, an English Countess who advocates trepanning as a tool to achieve higher consciousness and performed one on herself as an art piece entitled "Heartbeat in the Brain". Some of the footage can be seen in this documentary: https://vimeo.com/120924327

if I remember correctly it's a form of enlightenment and also I think a way of "getting high". I remember her describing that she had to do it precisely otherwise she would kill herself.

She believes the brain is suppressed by the bone there and that releasing the blood creates greater consciousness or something. She was an artist and advocate of drug reform as well so it seems she was an all-round wacko. Couldn't find a doctor to drill into her head so she did it herself.

Hey guys, there's a new documentary series on Netflix called Captive.

> Netflix returns to the genre with their new series “Captive,” from two-time Oscar-winning producer Simon Chinn (“Man on Wire”) and executive producer Doug Liman (“The Bourne Identity”). The series examines the most challenging hostage situations of our times, from the highest-profile cases to those kept hidden from the public around the globe. It explores the viewpoints of every party involved: the victims, their families, experienced negotiators and the kidnappers themselves.

Different anon but that dude pissed me off the most.
Because he's nothing but poor trash who lords the money he spends on lessons and training over his daughter. He seems like such a god damn loser, at least the other parents don't rub off as such desperate poorfags.

Thanks for linking this, anon. I've known about Darger for a while, but never did more research than reading his Wikipedia page.
Honestly, I wish his books(s) were public, I'd love to read all 15,000 pages of it. The subject matter, in theory, is both haunting and compelling with its themes of innocence and the characters' fight to keep hold of it. It's almost like Peter Pan meets Alice in Wonderland (or Lolita?) with a dash of extreme violence. I can't tell if it was his way of coping with the abuse he himself suffered as a child, or if it was his own method of dealing with some not-so-nice paraphilias he had in a way that allowed him to feel "clean" inside (combined with going to church several times a day). Probably both.
There's something very anime about the horned girls, too.

No. 196906

i mean i get that he wanted the best for his daughter and allocated lots of time and money to do so but there were just so many better ways to go about it.

i hope now that the documentary is out he was able to see what he was doing wrong. there's a big difference between disciplining your child and making them strive to do their best and being a literally did and mentally abusing your kid by forcing them to do shit and then blaming them for wasting your money when its something you made them do in the first place.

So… if the Heartbeat in the Brain documentary was thought to be lost because it was rarely screened, then shown at London in 2011, who the hell has been holding onto this "lost media" all this time? And why is it rarely screened? Is it too graphic because it actually shows her drilling a hole in her head or what?

just watched the ultimate guide to penny pinching. i thought i was a cheap ass but dear god some of these people are a bit much. i did think it was nice that the couponing lady gave all the food she bought to a potluck for charity. and i liked the dude that collected roadkill and cooked it because you could tell he was familiar with nature and not an idiot just grilling whatever was on the side of the road.
