Best Hidden Gems on Netflix Worth Watching Right Now: The Thin Blue Line

The Thin Blue Line

Long before Making a Murderer, there was The Thin Blue Line. Former private detective Errol Morris directed this chilling documentary with the intention of bringing more attention to the case of Randall Adams, a man sentenced to death for the murder of a police officer. Morris’ work paid off when his film, and the many discrepancies in the evidence and testimony it uncovered, prompted officials to reopen the case, eventually exonerating Adams and overturning his conviction completely only a year after the documentary was released.
