This episode we look at two documentaries about police corruption that stylistically straddle the line between straight documentary and narrative filmmaking. Tiller's Russell's 'The Seven Five' takes a hard look at the most dangerous neighborhood in New York in the 1980s and the two corrupt cops that tried to squeeze every dollar out it they could. 'The Thin Blue' is a genuine masterpiece by Errol Morris, arguably the best documentary filmmaker of the last 40 years.

George Miller delivers one of most heart pounding, visionary action films in years with his victorious return to the Mad Max franchise, 'Mad Max: Fury Road'. In order to understand the roots of this post-apocalyptic roller coaster ride, we look back at the classic Australian genre films of the 70s & 80s in the amazing documentary 'Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild, Untold Story of Ozploitation!' (2008).
