I'll kick this off
Hillsborough will always haunt me until I'm gone. How almost 100 people who simply came to see a live football match in Sheffield England would never make it home, crushed to death. Most who died were under 30 years old and the scars would never heal would affect millions of people.
This 1989 disaster was totally avoidable, preventable. It would take until 2015 for there to be real justice and the real truth to come out. I saw this documentary on Netflix as part of an ESPN series called "soccer stories". I watched it with half interest initially and was aghast. I think most Americans at hearing this news at the time just chalked it up to English football hooliganism. What I did not know at the time is that particular documentary was not allowed to be showed in England for legal reasons.
It is a fascinating sociological study of English elitism. Something those of us in the Southern USA can understand. How London elites were willing to believe that fans of the Liverpool football team must have had something to do with the deaths of 100 of their own. They believed the lies.
Hillsborough will pull you in and will not let go.
Basically anything by SB Nation. Jon Bois is awesome and most of the. Are short documentaries maxing out around 10minutes.
I come across great random docs like this. Stay classy Cleveland.
Of course, not to outdo themselves.
How can you forget about that game? It is that unforgettable in a not so nice kind of way.
