|03.17.15||Internet||So... I remember watching half of this but to be completely honest I didn't think I had gotten through the whole thing before. In any case, HBOGO has all three of these docs so I figured I'd start with this before moving on to the others (which I know I haven't seen). The raw emotion of the bereaved people hit me much more this time. I feel like my initial opinion of this was that it was overrated and too long. I liked it much more this time. The Bojangles dude, the brain tumor, the flagrant holes in the prosecution's case... they all rang out this time. But you know, I also don't buy 100% that the kids are innocent. It's a great doc that gets this rich in humanity. On to the second one...|
|04.04.09||Netflix|| This and its sequel are one of those movies that I definitely feel guilty for not having seen. It always comes up as a staple and I always have to quiet down and vaguely act like I know what people are talking about.|
This is eff'n long.
Much more straightforward than my preconceptions... this was actually much simpler and polished than I thought it would be. Maybe because I'm coming at this much much later than everyone else, but I wasn't really in love with it. Maybe the sequel makes things more interesting.
Does this make me a sociopath? that I didn't ball my eyes out while watching this? Hmm....
