For some reason Netflix suggested I watch Brother's Keeper after I watched a bunch of horror movies. It's about the investigation of a possible fratricide, but the context is so weird and sad. Four old men, all brothers, all low-IQ, living together in a shack and farming like it's 1820, and then one of them dies and exposes both their bizarre circumstances and the strange, resentful, loving relationship their town has with them. It's a little sweet, pretty sad, and kind of hard to watch at times (the courtroom footage :( ). Good watch.

And I finally watched Until the Light Takes Us. I'm kind of annoyed at it. There are some parts I liked a lot, but it feels like the filmmakers were too much in awe of, especially, Varg Vikernes, to really get in deep about the whys, so at the end it doesn't feel like the filmmakers had anything at all to say. It's really bizarre to me that they glossed over the politics in early Norwegian black metal, especially as they seemed to be pushing the nihilist angle.

Any good documentaries on native Americans? I'm watching one on youtube (this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Dr_Qqja4RY) and I just need to know more about the people who used to live where my house now stands (:smith:).

Reel Injun is about Native American representation in cinema. Broken Rainbow, about the Navajo, mining, and government interference in the '70s, is really good but horribly depressing (and horribly infuriating).
