The Top 100 Inspirational Movies: 40 - 21
23 - The Thin Blue Line
In 1976, a Dallas police officer was murdered at a routine
traffic stop. The boy who murdered him, 16-year old David Harris, pinned the
crime on Randall Adams, an itinerant worker who was subsequently sentenced to
death. He sat in prison, waiting for his execution, for 13 years. That’s when
documentary filmmaker Errol Morris came along, dove into the case, and released
a documentary called The Thin Blue Line.
The documentary was so compelling, so meticulously researched, that Adams’ case
was reopened. A year after the documentary came out, Adams was released from
prison, a free man once again.
Morris got an innocent man off death row with his film. Could there possibly be anything more inspirational than that?
