3. Untold: Crimes & Penalties (2021)
Genre: Documentary, Crime
Directed by: Chapman Way, Maclain Way
What happens when a waste-removal magnate with mob ties decides to buy a minor league hockey team and appoint his teenage son as general manager and president?
Jimmy Galante brought the Danbury Trashers to his Connecticut hometown in 2004 and had his 17-year-old son, A.J., run the UHL expansion team for two wild, brawl-filled seasons — a run that eventually led to a massive FBI bust that landed the elder Galante in prison and forced the team to disband. Part Slap Shot, part The Sopranos (Galante was rumored to be the real-life inspiration for Tony Soprano, after all), the Trashers’ outrageous story is almost too unbelievable to believe.
Nonetheless, the documentary is jam-packed with interviews and archival footage, including ESPN broadcasts from the Trashers’ brief run, that emphasize how genuine this bizarre sports saga was. When you’re finished with this story, make sure to watch the other documentaries in the Untold series.
