Fortunately the SLA made a ton of audio recordings which are the backbone of this fascinating even-handed documentary about the abduction of Patricia Hearst. The only way it could be better is if the subject submitted to an interview.  Thoughtful treatment of a significant event at a major turning point in our history.

Another "character study" of a man born into privilege and talent who's adrift. Written by a woman, Carole Eastman (as Adrien Joyce) and director Bob Rafelson.  Probably felt liberating in 1970. Worth viewing thanks to the performance of Karen Black. Plus, it's Jack Nicholson before he got huge. Famous Chicken Salad scene (yes, that's Toni Basil at the table.)  Very Dark and sad, sometimes funny. Beautifully shot. Classical and country music: no rock n' roll.
