All In: The Fight for Democracy (2020)



This is such an important documentary and a real eye-opener to how one political party in the USA is attempting to exclude black people from voting or making it increasingly difficult for them to do so. The documentary compares things happening now with attempts made to stop ex slaves from voting after they were freed. In many ways the USA hasn't changed that much in one a half centuries.

Tina (2021)



An interesting documentary of the singer. There were no major new insights or revelations about her. The first half focusses on her life and career with her husband Ike while the second half concentrates on how she reinvented herself after her divorce to become the star that she is. The story of the abuse she endured while married to Ike is what she is best known for but I found the most interesting part of the documentary was how she was determined so come out of his shadow and be a successful solo artist in her own right. I didn't realise that the song that revived her career, What's Love Got To Do With It, was originally recorded by Bucks Fizz.

Nail Bomber (Netflix). A very good account of the London Nail Bombings in the late 90's. It's just a one off but worth a watch. Just starting the documentary on Peter Tatchell, again on Netflix. Cannot stand the man but looks very interesting with Sir Ian McKellen interviewing him.
