West of Memphis

Rated R 150 min. 2012



The baffling, infuriating case of the West Memphis Three has been dragging on for two decades now. A three-part HBO documentary series on the case, the excellent Paradise Lost films by Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky, raised multiple red flags regarding the trial, including suggestions of false testimony, coerced confessions and prosecutorial misconduct. This new documentary film, produced by Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh and directed by Amy Berg (Deliver Us from Evil), but about halfway through, however, it shifts its focus. By way of new eyewitness and DNA evidence, the filmmakers make a persuasive case about the identity of the real killer, and that he has been hiding in plain sight all along.
