The first trailer and poster for Atom Egoyan's Devil's Knot arrived online today, a film that was picked up by Image Entertainment out of the Toronto Film Festival where I was able to see it, but wasn't at all moved. In fact, my "D" review may have been a little kind given how empty and generic the film actually is. Based on the well-known story of the West Memphis Three the film tells the story of the three teens arrested and charged with killing three children in a small Arkansas town. As I said in my review, the film just beats around the bush, and tells "a dramatized interpretation of the story that is nothing more than a Cliff's Notes version of the events that lead up to the conviction of Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley, Jr. and Jason Baldwin rather than the 18 years that followed, which are tidily addressed »
