Now Playing: Adam

National Geographic: Inside the Hunt for the Boston Bomber: Gave me a sense of what this movie will look like chronicling those 5 days and the various characters you will have (girl hurt in bombing, FBI agent in charge, Ed Davis, etc) An interesting look at how technology not only totally hindered the investigation but also helped solve the case, a good balance of pros and cons.

Birth of the Dead: A good in-depth look at the making of night of the living dead and how it mirrored a lot of the social economics of the 60’s and why it’s such an important film.

Never Sleep Again: a good look at the nightmare on elm st. series.
