Perfect portrait of the unreliability of the American Judicial System
19 August 2018 | by pipo_brutalSee all my reviews

This was one of the most heartbreaking, inhumane and irrational criminal cases I came across in my entire life.

You will find two major types of reviews in here:

1. The skeptic type, based on rational and logical analysis of all the evidence and framings towards Steven Avery and Brenden Dassen making them not guilty (attributing around 10/10 rating).

2. The emotional type, based on irrational and illogical analysis of all the speeches and horror stories the prosecution, the police and the media told the public making them guilty (attributing around 01/10 rating).

This documentary series is constructed to favour the skeptic type (1). However, reality favoured the emotional type (2).

Living the American nightmare, shall them say.

Enjoy this highly unbiased masterpiece.
