An Eye Opening Documentary
12 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A fairly effective presentation of the issues surrounding the death of a young man in an affluent suburb of Los Angeles. Some of the stock filler was a bit repetitive and the "reenactments" of actual events were a bit contrived looking, but this faded in the presentation of the issues themselves. Certainly the hypocrisy of the justice system in California was made quite evident. I found that in the end, there were no real good guys or bad guys here (with the notable exception of a couple of defense lawyers and a private investigator who seemed surprisingly honorable). The movie certainly paints a negative image of the victim's father, but based on the facts presented, it seems well deserved. The saddest aspect of this mess is that in the post O.J., Michael Jackson, and Menendez era of California jurisprudence a number of well-meaning people forgot the difference between vengeance and justice. You might find it worthwhile to follow up this movie with a bit of internet research on this case and it's individuals. By the way, the score was quite excellent.
