West of Memphis
Documentary • R • 2012 • 2 hr 30 min
One of the best crime documentaries out there
Insightful documentary showing the monumental failure of the American judicial system that ultimately cost more lives than just the victim’s
Very good documentary. Really cool to see so many fight for the justice of the 3. Also does well to cast doubt onto others

Good companion piece to the Paradise Lost trilogy.
Makes you feel that for some woman's denial is a river in egipt.
A film about the failings of the justice system - a condensed account of the case and the West Memphis 3's long fight for justice

A compelling documentary about a story we often forget.
Absolutely devastating story, about the end of 6 boys' lives as they knew them. Terrifying story of what mob justice and fear can accomplish
