  • West of Memphis (R)

    The case of the West Memphis Three—the teenage boys convicted on shaky evidence for the 1993 murders of three eight-year-olds—has already been covered in a trilogy of documentaries by Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky (Paradise Lost and its sequels), but this summation is such a powerful piece of storytelling that it feels authoritative. more...
