West Of Memphis (2012)

A documentary about the West Memphis Three. A summary of all that has happened in the past, much of which was covered in the two Paradise Lost documentaries, and up to the most recent resolution. In addition to shining a spotlight on a horrific murder in a small town, it also shows how politics, pride, and pressure can make a mockery of justice. A very well made film. It probably didn’t hurt to have Fran and Peter Jackson as advisers for the project.

Rating: B
