Suspense-phobic
23 October 2002 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

A pseudo-documentary treatment of a true incident, this was framed as an inquest into the events. While the dramatization of what happened is fine, and the performances are believable, it is as if someone was afraid making the story exciting would undermine the documentary realism of the piece. This could have been so much more if they had allowed it more suspense.
