The Thin Blue Line
In 1985, Morris takes an interest in James Grigson, a psychiatrist in Dallas. In Texas, the death penalty can only be sentenced if the psychiatric expertise insures that the accused is susceptible to commit even more violent crimes in the future if he is not put to death. Grigson, or “Dr Death” thinks this is the case for Randall Dale Adams, 36 years old, accused of killing a policeman.
The director Errol Morris, convinced of the innocence of Adams and investigator for a private detective agency, starts shooting his film.
