'West of Memphis'
Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky have documented the case of the West Memphis Three -- three young men convicted and imprisoned for three ritualistic child murders, but set free earlier this year amidst doubts at their guilt -- in three acclaimed "Paradise Lost" documentaries. Could there possibly be anything new to say about the tawdry and disturbing case? No less a filmmaker than Peter Jackson, who dipped his narrative toes into the true crime genre with "Heavenly Creatures," seems to think so, producing this epic -- 150 minutes -- doc with director Amy Berg, who earned an Oscar nomination for "Deliver Us from Evil." We can't wait to see what fingerprints this powerhouse team puts on this compelling story.
