Untold: Crimes And Penalties (Netflix Streaming):

They were the bad boys of hockey – a team bought by a man with mob ties, run by his 17 year old son, and with a rep for being as violent as they were good. The story of the Danbury Trashers.

UHL team (minor league hockey). Mobster’s son gets a team, and gotta give credit, he made it work not knowing what the hell he was doing in the first place. Honestly, even though I disapprove of his approach to the game (fighting > actual hockey), he made some very smart decisions in building the team. Well worth a watch.

Misha And The Wolves (Netflix streaming):

Misha and the Wolves is the dramatic tale of a woman whose holocaust memoir took the world by storm, but a fallout with her publisher – who turned detective – revealed an audacious deception created to hide a darker truth.

This one p*ssed me off. I was THIS close to thinking, “Hey, maybe she was so traumatized, she made up a world,” but frankly, I think she just did it for max profits. Either way is plausible, and it is mesmerizing to see it unfold.
