EVIDENCE SUMMARY and MOVIE SUGGESTIONS are: Conviction (2010) suggests retracting the path of old evidence can often clear a case or prove an convict innocent! Follow the unique evidence, logic and money to the top. Some say time reveals all, or the truth will set your free, or that truth is a defense, or that truth is the scientific standard. I AM SUGGESTING THAT THE TRUTH ALMOSTS ALWAYS WINS IN THE LONG RUN, EVEN WITH A PROBLEM JUDGE NOT ALLOWING CERTAIN EVIDENCE TO BE ADMITTED, WHICH MIGHT BE LEAKED TO THE MEDIA, WHICH A JURY MIGHT DISCOVER EVEN IF THEY ARE SEQUESTERED, LOCKED UP! We may think that almost always innocence or guilty will be revealed in time by some sort of evidence. AGAIN, we see in Alpha Dog (2006), BASED ON A TRUE STORY, IS AN EXAMPLE ABOUT WHERE MANY DID INFORMAL INTERVIEWS OF A VICTIM, YET FAILED TO PROPERLY REACT OR SEE THE MOST LOGICAL CONCLUSION WAS THE VICTIM WOULD BE MURDERED! The movie Brubaker (1980) also reenforces this point, which it is a matter of getting the victims to come forward! ALL THE INFORMATION IS USUALLY THERE TO SOLVE A CRIME, BUT THE EVIDENCE IS OFTEN MISINTERPRETED FOR ALL THE WRONG REASONS! Movies based on books written by Tom Clancy including: The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, The Sum of All Fears tend to be good; Clint Eastwood seems to choose wonderfully written work including: Blood Work, True Crime, Mystic River, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, Absolute Power, In the Line of Fire; John Grisham's superbly written material highlights the law and investigations in the movies: Runaway Jury (2003), A Painted House (2003), The Gingerbread Man (1998), The Chamber (1996), A Time to Kill (1996), The Client (1994), The Pelican Brief (1993), The Firm (1993), The Street Lawyer (2003) (TV), A Time to Kill (1996), Mickey (2004) and Mississippi Rising (2005). The author James Patterson (II) details interesting and often gruesome psychological profiles in Along Came a Spider (2001), Miracle on the 17th Green (1999), and Kiss the Girls (1997); Dennis Hopper is especially interesting about using psychology, imagery and patterns when investigating; Asian Film recommendations are Audition (1997), City on Fire (1979), Mou gaan dou (2002) Infernal affairs, 1-3, Azumi (2003), Family (2001/II), Hyeongsa (2005) aka Duelist (2005), Hard Boiled (1992) aka Lat sau san taam (1992), Hero (2002) with Starring Jet Li, Chungking Express (1994) The Killer (Uncut), Last Hurrah For Chivalry, She's on Duty.Kurosagi, Nodame Cantabile, Orange Days, Tramps Like Us, The Last Emperor, The Crow (1994) and Bruce Lee documentaries The Intercepting Fist (2001), Bruce Lee: A Warrior's Journey (2000), and Bruce Lee: The Path of the Dragon (1998).
