The Full Trilogy of Documentaries And TONS Of Bonus Footage,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Paradise Lost Trilogy Collector's Edition (DVD)
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.
