The Thin Pink Line is a 1998 film directed by Joe Dietl and Michael Irpino.

Plot outline

A small film crew choose as the subject of their next documentary a death-row inmate who insists he is innocent of murder. Subtitled 'The Making of the Making of a Documentary', this film is meant to be the product of another documentary film crew that has been documenting the crew's efforts to interview the inmate's friends and family. However, this is a pretense that is not consistently applied throughout the narrative, and this film only occasionally qualifies as a mockumentary. The inmate himself is extravagantly gay, and much of the content of the film centres on a variety of jokes at the expense of homosexuals.

The title is a parody of Errol Morris' documentary The Thin Blue Line, which raised questions about the conviction of a prison inmate on death-row.
