I like how Aphrodite Jones is the narrator, the interviewer, and one who is being interviewed herself. She even introduces herself via voiceover narration, saying "crime reporter, Aphrodite Jones". If it were up to her, she would be siting across from herself, interviewing herself. 2 Aphrodites in the same frame. I can only dream.

The moment Lana mistakenly called him "ma'am", she signed her death sentence......

It's so sad Lana only got real fame due to her being murdered! She was stunning.

Spector is clearly deranged. He's way beyond mere eccentricity.

Don't make excuses for 'Baldy'. Spector had a long history of carrying guns and threatening people, including musicians. It's a miracle he didn't kill someone decades ago.

When you search up Phil Spector expecting songs, but you're given crime documentaries instead...

So, according to "Phil", Lana came to his "castle" and "blew her head open" and then SAID he murdered her! ...aa...what?
"Now what her motive was for taking her own life, I don't know and I really don't care." What a creep and a monster.

I read Ronnie Spector's autobiography before this happened, so I wasn't surprised at this murder. The man is just insane.

This man obviously suffered from "Napolean" syndrome - (little big man) I imagine his wrath would have been particularly frightening to women.

What a disgusting and repulsive figure this Phil Spector is.. I cannot fathom how anybody could find him not guilty of the crime. Those jurors who did need their head examined.
Meg Kampen
Meg Kampen:
Yeah! So many people have that ''Were you there? Did you see him do it?'' Attitude when it comes to celebrities no matter how much evidence there is!
Well,judging from his mugshot he can at least play Riff-Raff in the next jailhouse production of Rocky Horror!

Don't do the crime if you can't do the time. Phil Spector will get out of prison with a tag on his toe.
I swear I must be the most crime documentary-addicted person on the Internet. I watch at least 2 a day, most days, for like 2 years. I think I'll commit suicide the day I run out! 
Sometimes, in the bathroom, my Phil Sphincter produces a wall of sound.
the ramones said in there documentrary end of the century that phil pulled a gun on them and wouldnt let them leave

Oh----so Phil got pissed at Lana Clarkson! She called him Mame? She thought he was an older woman? He was insulted. Now I get a better picture of this horrible story.

Nobody with a 33 room mansion would really go to jail for this.
I hope he enjoys his jail castle. 
Phil Spector had so much talent in music and he destroyed his legacy with this stupid excessive violence. Sad story.

I can't get over how Phil Spector looks so much like the Crypt Keeper.

"You play with smoke, you get fire." Actually, it's the other way round.
[Phil Spector's] mother was a little nuts, his sister was a little nuts" and Phil --well, he was a whole orchard of nuts. 17:15

There are many creepy disturbed individuals in this world who will never really come to prominence, because in every other way they are totally ordinary, lacking any real gift or talent to make them stand out. Spector was the classic example of someone who happened to have significant abilities, but whose eccentricity and plain weirdness was probably tolerated as part of the "artistic" temperament expected of creative people. Problem being, the constant indulgence of such tendencies can over time lead to a total disconnection from reality, particularly when every whim can be satisfied without regard to the opinions of others and you live in a self obsessed bubble. Being around sane, well adjusted people is vital for one's psychological wellbeing. They can confront you in a healthy way about any dysfunctional parts of your personality that might exist and keep you in touch with what is normal. Inversely, prolonged isolation can eventually lead to a near inevitable reversal of the grounding effect of social interaction. Spector's success allowed him to create an alternate universe for himself, where he was insulated from a need to ever look at himself truthfully. In an ironic way it facilitated his downfall, with his talent allowing him to indulge the worst aspects of his nature without sanction of any kind. He needed a total reality check and in all likelehood it wasn't until Lana's death that he had a moment of true clarity. Sad that it took the loss of a life for it to occur.
Any chance of a documentary without the dumbed down sound effects and music in the background? And without the other cheap effects.
Christ, he had a castle. Why not use the dungeon?

I don't know why everyone dogs the wigs. I mean, I think all of the wigs were crazy, but I understand why he wore them. He's bald, his head is all jacked from the car accident, it's understandable.
"Prone" means face down. Not standing up and backing away.
You know, as much as they sit there and knock him as a little King, the truth is that these women still were lured toward his MONEY/status, and sucked up to it. The MONEY as always (like the forbidden fruit), they want it bad, so bad that they are ah slave to it and don't even know/or see it.
If he didn't have that MONEY, they wouldn't give him the time of day.

I just can't imagine that any woman in this world could actually go out with this caricature.! Just not possible!

'They wanted proof, actual proof'. Well that would be nice, after all it is a fucking trial
My only question is if he didn't do it, why would Lana ride all the way to Phil's house to shoot herself? Who wants their legend to be committing suicide at Phil Spector's house?

Thank God Ronnie Spector escaped that situatiom. I believe the suicide of his dad whn Phil was 9yo, then the death of his own son who was also 9yo, pushed an alrdy bipolar Phil, over the edge. Bipolar is known as the genious disorder

Luci Verdad:
Phil Spector has produced some of the best music but this man is deranged. After he married Ronnie Spector, he imprisoned her in their mansion and tormented her for years until she escaped barefoot. Ronnie dodged a bullet with this relationship. Their kids weren't as fortunate. His adopted sons say they were used and abused by him. I've heard many stories of his antics. He seemed to have a sense of entitlement and liked to intimidate people with threats. He is where he belongs, behind bars.

"Don't tap your last years Pradas at me honey"
Freak show with Phil Spector.
He had waved guns around all his life, this was inevitable.
I think if he had been influential and still relevant at the time of the murder, he would have gotten away with it. We all know that famous and rich people almost always get away with shit. fuck the law! The law was made to protect the rich and powerful and destroy the little guys.

Doesn't it makes sense that once someone starts behaving in an insane manner it can only get worse as time goes on and it can never get better? There really should be zero tolerance because somebody who is innocent will end up killed before it is over. Anybody who doesn't believe it is as insane as the predator and if the roles were reversed the story would still be the same with the other guy getting killed. It is practically a fact of life and normal people are lucky to want no part of it other than to read the bizarre stories about it. :) I guess that is why there will always be places for these people to hang out and there will always be the presence of drugs to tempt them to believe it's ok to not be normal.
He sure believed he could get away with it though because he wasn't the least bit worried about hiding the evidence.

It's classic 'assassinate the character' bs. Phil's been a gun psycho for years - ask his ex-wife Ronnie, another completely abused woman. She lived to tell the tale...barely.

Phil picked up the gun habit from Ike Turner. All those R&B legends carried guns in that era.
