Storyline

Marty Rockman, the notorious producer of the hit reality-TV show "So Sue Me", has a brand new concept: "Citizen Verdict". Each week a real criminal case will be tried before the American people, but this time they're also the jury. If the defendant is voted guilty in a death penalty case, Rockman will televise the execution. When an escalation in violent crime and terrorism hits the state of Florida, Governor Tyler, desperate to be seen as a tough-on-crime Republican leader in the upcoming Presidential race, decides to give Rockman his chance and "Citizen Verdict" goes into production in Tampa. Selected by phone-in vote, the show's first contestant is Ricky Carr -- a man accused of the rape and murder of popular celebrity-chef Dolly Hamilton. The case is a surefire ratings winner. But when an investigation begins, it becomes apparent that Ricky may be innocent of murder. Written by Sujit R. Varma

best movie ever~!!!
20 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

This movie just turned one of my favorites!!! It blasted my mind!!! It's definitely so worth watching!!! It may not be as entertaining, but it puts the viewer's mind to work and leads us to ponder on the authenticity of media in multiple aspects. For one thing, it reveals the workings of show biz behind camera. For another, it forces us to face that moment of truth, that thin line dividing our beliefs and our moral judgment. This film is a reality show in itself. Yet, ironically, it questions the very authenticity of reality behind the screen. For anyone who hasn't seen this yet, rent it!!! We all need films like these to keep our minds working and our eyes open!
