A masterpiece of narrative non-fiction set around an American crime and the birth of the FBI, this is an investigative account of a forgotten moment in history. Martin Scorcese brings us a beautiful rendition of this piece of forgotten American history. You can watch the trailer here.
In the 1920s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian nation in Oklahoma, after oil was discovered beneath their land. Then, one by one, the Osage began to be killed off. As the death toll climbed, the FBI took up the case. But the bureau badly bungled the investigation. In desperation, its young director, J. Edgar Hoover, turned to a former Texas Ranger named Tom White to unravel the mystery. Together with the Osage, he and his undercover team began to expose one of the most chilling conspiracies in American history.
