Quotes

[last lines]
Amanda Knox - Murder Suspect: I think people love monsters. So when they get the chance, they want to see them. It's people projecting their fears. They want the reassurance that they know who the bad people are and it's not them. So maybe that's what it is. We're all afraid. And fear makes people crazy.

Not quite enough of a look into the story.
20 February 2017 | by emilyclairegreenwoodSee all my reviews

This is a good documentary for a brief look into the infamous story of Amanda Knox, and I particularly like the way they have this led by interview pieces to camera with Amanda herself. However, I feel as though the documentary was almost slightly biased and didn't spend enough time looking into the other avenues of how the situation came about. It's worth a watch for sure, Amanda is an odd and interesting character to watch, but don't expect edge-of-seat gripping.
