The Thin Blue Line On November 28, 1976, when drifter Randall Dale Adams was picked up by teenage runaway David Harris, his fate was sealed. That night, a police officer was shot in cold blood. And though all the facts pointed to Harris, a sociopath with a lengthy rap sheet, Adams was convicted of capital murder. Was Adams guilty? And if not, does Morris unlock the secrets of this baffling case?

Like Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, Errol Morris’ examination of a real-life murder case went beyond reportage and actually changed the judgement in the Texas case. The Thin Blue Line is more like a waking nightmare than a documentary, and takes the docudrama genre to its outer limits, intercutting newspaper headlines, bullet-wound diagrams and Texas road maps with grade-B film noir fare. Featuring impassioned testimony from real people involved in the case, this groundbreaking documentary is buoyed by Philip Glass’s hypnotic score and Morris’s chilling finale.
