Documentaries on My Watchlist for 2024

 Hello friends …and welcome or welcome back.

“My time is incredibly expensive.”― The Good Trade

I hope everyone is doing well and staying warm.  We are under snow in my part of the world so I hope you get a chance to enjoy it.  Otherwise, please take care of your mind and body, get plenty of rest, and don’t forget your greens.

What better way to enjoy some time snowed in than catching a good documentary?  Whether they are confirmed facts or part fiction, I find them very informative and give you a lot of information in a compressed amount of time or in parts.

I enjoy a good amount of true crime, and I know that’s not everyone’s cup of tea.  Also, I don’t watch anything too heavy because it leaves some residual thoughts (i.e., Night Stalker).  I don’t know what I was thinking.  But the 80s and 90s, Black History, and music evoke thoughts of nostalgia for me and a “what was I doing then” feeling. Oh, and let’s not forget I 💘 anything about horror movie franchises. (i.e., Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy)

With that …I’m sharing a few documentaries that I’ve seen recently.

and so it goes…

The Devil on Trial (2023)


Explore the first – and only – time “demonic possession” has officially been used as a defense in a U.S. murder trial. Including firsthand accounts of alleged devil possession and shocking murder, this extraordinary story forces reflection on our fear of the unknown.

The American Experience
The War on Disco


The War on Disco explores the culture war that erupted over the spectacular rise of disco music. Originating in underground Black and gay clubs, disco had unseated rock as America’s most popular music by the late 1970s. But many diehard rock fans viewed disco as shallow and superficial, with its repetitive beat and culture that emphasized pleasure. A story that’s about much more than music, The War on Disco explores how the powerful anti-disco backlash revealed a cultural divide that, to some, seemed to be driven by racism and homophobia. The hostility came to a head on July 12, 1979, when a riot broke out at “Disco Demolition Night” during a baseball game in Chicago.
