Based on the book... but why not watch the three HBO films and "West Memphis Three"
8 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm confused by this film. I have been following the West Memphis Three case since 1993 and I did not even know this film was being made. Suddenly it is on the indie film circuit. Why was this film made when "West of Memphis" was shown at indie film festivals in 2011 and is now on DVD after a short theater presence in 2012-2013? The three HBO specials Paradise Lost I, II, and III along with West of Memphis tell this story. The three men still need to be exonerated. What is the goal of this film when West of Memphis is based on Devil's Knot? I don't know if I would recommend this film or not given that this story is documented in minute detail in the three HBO films which include court coverage, and "West of Memphis" including the families involved in the case. I'm not sure why a set of actors depicting what is already well documented was created or is needed. My recommendation would be to watch the three HBO films, (Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills, Paradise Lost 2: Revelations, and Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory, directed by Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky) watch the film "West of Memphis" (Peter Jackson), and most importantly read the book "Devil's Knot: The True Story of the West Memphis Three" B E F O R E looking into watching this film. I think with all that is already documented this film will not be needed. It's pretty clear the Three need to be exonerated and the real killer still needs to be found.
