This was a well put together documentary for those versed on the subject and those looking to learn more about this important point in history. It's informative, well paced and sticks to the "need to know" rather than being chocked full of filler. What I didn't enjoy (by no fault at all of the makers of this documentary) is all the dodging, shoulder shrugging and flat out excuse making for Malcolm's true assailant. Two innocent men did a combined 40+ years of prison time for a crime they didn't commit, and everybody and I mean EVERYBODY from a senator to the random person on the street basically said "so what" when confronted about who the actual killer was. It was truly infuriating to see so many people be so indifferent about someone committing such a heinous crime and never having to pay the price for it.
As infuriating as all that was, I did still really enjoy this documentary. I'm a student of history so this was right up my alley. If you have a few hours to spare, give it a look. It's definitely time well spent.
