Storyline

On the morning of February 8, 1977, Tony Kiritsis walked into an office on East Market Street and wired a shotgun to mortgage broker Richard Hall's head. After making a 40-minute 911 call that ran the emotional gamut from polite respect to seething rants and tearful breakdowns, Kiritsis then paraded Hall along the streets of downtown Indianapolis followed by a cadre of police and media who were unable to do anything other than watch the event unfold. Kiritsis went on to hold Hall captive for three days as SWAT snipers, the bomb squad, and FBI looked for a way to disarm him without Hall being shot. The crisis culminated in a shocking press conference broadcast live on TV. Written by Mark Enochs

Kudos to the filmmakers! Absolutely astonishing documentary that will hold you to the screen in the same sense Tony held Dick.

This should be seen by all journalists and law students and for those who like the seat of your pants thrills of real crime. This is the stuff that documentary filmmaking should be.

Just watch it! You won't be disappointed.
