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.

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.
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.
The three accused in this series come across as unsympathetic as the first episode opens and by the time the series is complete, it's not easy to feel a great deal of sympathy for them and a great deal of mistrust for the "justice system" not only in Arkansas but nationwide.
