A staggering five part American documentary revolving around the life of an American football player.

An exceptional documentary that went on to win the Best Documentary Feature Award at the 2017 Oscars.

O.J.: Made in America

‘O.J.: Made in America’ digs deep into the historical and cultural underpinnings of the “trial of the century”.

The best thing about documentaries is that they rely on strong research. The better thing about this documentary is that it has old footages of America in her racial throes from the 60’s through the early 90’s.

This case — the so-called “trail of the century” is so compelling, thoughtful and ultimately sad. It teaches you myriad things about the grim realities of life. Gives you a lesson on Justice. The documentary is essentially only an euphemism for something bigger — much bigger — than the case it depicts. It is not about an individual, it is about a society, a race altogether.

It’s hard to appreciate the beauty of this documentary to my heart’s content without giving away any spoilers. My best counsel would be to just dive in. Just watch it without any background. Everything you need to know is right there.

Sure watching all the five-parts is a major commitment of your time, but I assure you it is worth it.
