Alright, let me be completely honest with you about how I stumbled uponthis documentary. For most of my life, I had no idea who or what the West Memphis 3 were.I'm a 23 year old girl, living in Toronto. When these crimes werecommitted, I was in kindergarten likely learning how to read. So thefact I ...
While the story of the West Memphis Three, their awful flawed trial andsubsequent efforts to obtain freedom were well covered in the "ParadiseLost" trilogy of films, this single film overview has a lot of value. Perhaps because the case can now be looked back on in total, it feelslike there is a cle...
Just saw this at the premier in Wellington. It is a great film. Theevents themselves are incredible and this documentary more than doesthem justice. Its late in the evening and I can't go into a long review - I alsothink I need to let the film sink in. My initial feeling is that thisis a really amaz...

The 'West Memphis 3' were first brought to my attention back in2007/2008 when I viewed the astonishingly eye-opening documentaryParadise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills (1996), which Iwatched back-to-back with its sequel Revelations: Paradise Lost 2(2000). The case was so fascinating due...

Their dead bodies were foundmutilated. Three local teenagers were charged with the crimes and foundguilty after a trial which wa...
This is a great partner to "Paradise Lost 3", which is the thirdinstallment of the trilogy that makes the documentary of the WestMemphis Three, e.g. three young teenage boys who were judged asmurderers in lieu of the real killer(s). Where this film is at itsworst too skipping in time, it makes up fo...

The West Memphis Three case is almost like a movie itself. Three eightyear old boys murdered in a small town in Arkansas. The police relateit to satanism and track down three teenagers that could be possiblylinked to those activities. he three are arrested and tried with two ofthem getting life and ...

West of Memphis is a documentary of such clarity and precision that itsfindings will leave you rattled by a heinous crime but also convincedby how methodically researched and argued it is. This is a powerfulexample of how cinema can be used as an expression of fact and directorAmy Berg utilises this...
Some time travel came to me this week by way of a series of DVDdocumentaries I viewed over the last few days. The only way to describethe experience is as though I became a 17th century citizen of SalemMassachusetts and witnessed firsthand a witch trial. Without a doubt,these films present a frighte...
'West of Memphis', the latest documentary from Amy Berg, focuses on thestory of 'the West Memphis Three' – Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin andJesse Miskelly, three teenagers who were wrongly imprisoned in Memphis,Arkansas, in 1993, for being accused of brutally murdering three 8eight year-old boys...
My first thought after viewing this documentary was how could threeinnocent youths be charged/convicted/sentenced to this crime based onthe post trial evidence I'm viewing? It's really tragic if these threeare innocent. But what if the guy who directed this film, the clearleader of the three, actual...
First of all, if you have seen the 3 Paradise Lost films or the 48Hours coverage there is nothing new here. The film explains yet againwhy the WM3 are innocents - which is difficult to doubt - and tries tofind another suspect, like Paradise Lost 3 did with Byer. Even if theman in question is guilty,...
A very long documentary (2.5 hours) about the West Memphis Three - avery famous murder case in the US, in which 3 teenagers were sentencesto death or for life in prison, for the "satanic cult" murder of three8-year-olds. Almost 20 years later they were released (in a very weirdplea deal). People lik...
I've been following this case ever since HBO aired the first 'ParadiseLost' film in 1996. I was 15 then, and at the age, I was outraged andangry at how the justice system was working in Arkansas. I couldn'tbelieve that these people could convict three innocent young men withno evidence to life in pr...

The Police, Prosecution, and the Community Zoomed in onThree Teenagers who were Known Misfits, Liked Heavy Metal Music, andwere doing Odd Things and had a Fascination with the Occult.

I accidentally happened upon this documentary, and I have to say, I amnot very fond of documentaries because - if good - they really mess meup. This was one of them, the prime example.One thing has to be said right at the start of my review: I do not knowif these men (young men/boys at the time of t...
Reading the comments about this documentary I learnt that there hadbeen other films on this subject as part of the decades of trying tooverturn the original convictions; this was news to me but, in allhonesty, the case itself was news to me as I had never heard of thesemurders or the wider story. Pe...
WEST of MEMPHIS is a very compelling documentary about a huge--and notas uncommon as we'd like to think--apparent miscarriage of justice. Themost haunting aspect of the film is how guilty the "Memphis 3" appearduring the trial, yet how innocent they seem once certain facts emergeafterward. No matter...
