The part where they explain what coal companies did and the mindset of the workers was good/sad (and well placed). I now want to see a documentary on that.
Just saw heavy metal parking lot last night. Short but wicked sweet
the parking lot movie.
about, um, parking lot attendants. pretty entertaining.
I believe there was a segment of Pawn Stars where someone brought in "coal mine dollars" which were apparently "money" that could only be spent in the company stores. So the workers were paid exclusivly in a currency that they couldn't use anywhere else, slave labor at its most depressing.
Yeah, and the money that could only be used at their store didn't have as much value as real money in a real store would.
This thread + netflix streaming = awesome (and my ass on the couch on a rainy Sunday)
The only redeeming part about the Wild Whites doc was when the businessman said, "Look, we had a kid here in this county get accepted into MIT....MIT....why not do a documentary on him?"
The Whites are gross.
