documentary is biased
18 April 2005 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I just recently saw the movie reckless indifference. I know that most documentaries do not provide equal time to both sides of the issue but this documentary in particular was biased in favor of the four young men who committed the crime. The parents of the accused were upset that the victim's father, an LAPD detective, was using his influence to get the best trial for his dead son. What the parents of the accused do not realize or admit is that if they were in the same situation as the the victim's father they would be doing the same thing. Everyone wants justice for their family. It is understandable why Michael McCloren did not want to be interviewed for this movie. He probably knew that what he said would be misrepresented. The film shows more people being interviewed in defense of the accused. There are only four people shown discussing the victims. The deceased boy's parents and the district attorneys. This documentary would have been much better if it were more balanced.
