Amy Jo Johnson,
Award-winning documentary filmmaker Lauren Wilde makes another on criminals on death-row and the effects of their executions on local communities. In Hillsdale, car mechanic and graphic artist Kevin Reese, with a mild substance abuse problem, is one of 2 on 30 Oregon convicts actually about to get the lethal injection. The community refuses to cooperate, detective in charge and governor-appointed liaison Tom Redler even 'lost the file'. Kevin's employer and roommate are the first of a series of witnesses who make Lauren believe he's innocent and framed. Forensic expert Patty Sutton and his own deputy make her believe Redler is the killer, who will stop at nothing to hide the truth. Written by
Lost Behind Bars-The Obvious isn't What You Think ***
Interesting film about a reporter with her camera man. They are both doing a documentary about condemned prisoners and come across someone waiting for execution who is really innocent.
Unfortunately, they are working with a town who can't wait for the execution to take place as well as a head detective who is hostile in the preparation of this documentary. The killer is facing execution for wiping out an entire family. A love affair with the wife had gone awry.
Trouble is that it is quickly determined that the detective had an affair with the dead woman as well. The bodies begin to pile up including the camera man and the lawyer for the condemned prisoner.
Naturally, there is a coroner in the film who is too sweet as she contemplates retirement to Costa Rica.
The surprise ending is just that even though the film is contrived. Nevertheless, it's interesting because it appears so obvious that the head detective is the culprit until the very end.
