Product Description

The landmark documentary that sparked an international movement to 'Free the West Memphis Three', PARADISE LOST investigates the gruesome 1993 murder of three eight-year-old boys and the three teenagers accused of killing them as part of a Satanic ritual. From real-life courtroom drama and clandestine jailhouse interviews to behind-the-scenes strategy meetings and intimate moments with grief-stricken families, acclaimed filmmakers Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky were granted unprecedented access to all the players involved, capturing the events as they unfolded. REVELATIONS delves deeply into the shocking aftermath of the trials, updating the story seven years after the murders. With Echols on death row and Baldwin and Misskelley serving life sentences, PURGATORY picks up the story and reexamines the horrifying crime with fresh insights that only the passage of time can provide. Facts are reexamined, new evidence is revealed and new suspects are scrutinized.

Together, these films tear the lid off a notorious murder case and create a portrait of the American justice system that is at turns terrifying, heartbreaking and mesmerizing, ultimately demonstrating the power of cinema to effect social change.

The plight of the infamous West Memphis Three has been the center of controversy for almost two decades now. Upon discovering three eight year old boys murdered and discarded in the Robin Hood Hills area of West Memphis, Arkansas in 1993, a subsequent investigation caused local police to target three teen outsiders for the crime. Based on the most specious of evidence and a rampant desire to see justice done for such a heinous act, Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley were convicted and sentenced in 1994 despite a clear lack of physical evidence or motive. Due to Echols appearance, interest in metal music, and fascination with disturbing imagery, the deaths were chalked up to being a part of a dark occult ritual. And a frightened and justifiable mob mentality ruled the day (especially as word of Misskelley's questionable confession circulated).

But the facts never really added up and filmmakers Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky were on hand to document the proceedings in the disturbing feature (which won them an Emmy among other accolades) "Paradise Lost: The Child Murders of Robin Hood Hills" in 1996. As that film highlighted an apparent miscarriage of justice, it caused the West Memphis Three to become a national cause celebre. Graphic and unpleasant, it was a riveting film that brought an unrelenting awareness to the case and the legal system in general. In 2000, the pair released "Paradise Lost 2: Revelations" which was largely in response to the first film's reaction. It caught up with the boys in jail, and the focus seems to have been to dig further into the evidence and other possible suspects.

Paradise Lost is every bit as powerful as it was in 1993: A gripping tale of sadistic murder in the backwoods of Arkansas, prolonged courtroom drama, followed by three wrongful convictions, and a seemingly endless list of potential suspects that might be the real killer. Paradise Lost asks all of us to stand up and be counted for Justice. The Revalations(disc3) provided are far from adequate, and leave us with in a rather hollow, unsettled state. The extras disc included in the set provides us (at last) with some possible answers and a modicum of resolution For Paradise Lost fans, this set is a "must."
Bruce Sinofsky and Joe Berlinger are two of the finest documentary film makers that America has produced to date. And the Paradise Lost Trilogy is certainly their finest work: If you missed the actual events, or the original airing on HBO, don't miss this collection! the West Memphis Three are all free today.

***Spoiler Alert for those who have not seen these Documentaries***!

***(While I don't see how most people interested in these DVDs could not know some of the basics of what was or is involved, I am telling you about things you will see in the DVDS.) Please do not read any further if you want to watch the DVDs first to know what happened - thanks.***

I cannot wait until I can get this set! I have seen all 3 of the Documentaries on HBO, and the story of these three young men is compelling, heartbreaking, and full of what some may call sorrow or despair - I can't think of a word to truly describe all of the emotions you may feel when watching the Documentaries.

The most important thing that may be forgotten is that three young boys did lose their life.

What is not acceptable is what is shown in detail; throughout all three Documentaries is the extreme miscarriage of Justice.

I have never seen another program of this type which interested me almost as much as it sickened and disgusted me at the same time. The horrible murder of three children is covered in very graphic detail, including actual crime scene photos. All 3 of these were very hard to watch, yet also extremely compelling.

Why were the murders committed? How did the "West Memphis Three" spend what most people may consider to be the most important years of their life behind bars for a crime they did not commit? How could these three young men not have received better legal representation much sooner?

I would also say that for a time, I too was convinced they were guilty. There are many cases of people who have committed similar crimes and proclaim their innocence.

Anyone interested in our justice system should find this enthralling. (And we all should be interested in our justice system!) These videos look at this case from all angles and make you wonder why we put certain people in power. Unfortunately, too many of us do not pay attention to what goes on in our country until a case like this is publicized and we are pulled out of our inattention by such travesties as these. This should be a must-see for every high school government class!

For anyone that either already knew about the Robin Hood Hill Murder Case / The Saga of the West Memphis Three OR is interested in social injustices, this trilogy of documentaries is by turns compelling, heart breaking and hopeful. The three movies span the 18 years of dramatic twists and turns that these tragic events occurred in. The bonus footage, including interviews and also stuff that didn't make it into any of the movies is not strictly necessary, but offers some additional and valuable insight into all the players involved, from the parents of the three boys that were so horribly brutalized, to would-be suspects, to the men who literally have grown up in prison.

Anyone who watches this trilogy is bounds to be moved by the utter miscarriage of justice depicted within.

Lastly, if you find that you want more information about this case or these events, I'd strongly recommend reading Devil's Knot by investigative journalist Mara Leveritt. She did a thorough job of compiling the facts into a comprehensive narrative.
