Trailer for Peter Jackson's West of Memphis, documentary on the West Memphis Three

100%

PARADISE LOST 3 just premiered on HBO yesterday, but there's still more about the West Memphis 3 for you to learn. For instance, did you know that Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh (yes, the couple behind LORD OF THE RINGS) were instrumental in the trio's release from prison? They personally funded another investigation into the crime and found new evidence that led to their case getting reopened.

After doing so they produced the documentary WEST OF MEMPHIS. The director of the project is Amy Berg, no stranger to documentaries about disturbing subjects. She was also behind the excellent DELIVER US FROM EVIL, a horrifying look into how the Catholic church commited great acts of evil and protected its child-molesting priests.

WEST OF MEMPHIS looks like yet another look into the shortcomings of our legal system (and society), and while there's only so many movies on the same subject you can take, these filmmakers certainly make it a must-see. But how will it stack against PARADISE LOST 3?

The trailer for the documentary has just premiered, and you can check it out below. No word on a release date just yet but we'll let you know when we hear it.

Now imagine the United States if we had more people like Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh who actually gave a shit and had the money and clout to get something done.

And yet I was more excited when the last production diary dropped then when I heard these guys got released.

Shit. That's depressing when you think about it.

I just

heard an interview with one of the accused and the director of Paradise Lost on Opie & Anthony and never has there been a cas full of so many lies and deception for no reason at all, except to cover up a shitty, faulty trial and put the blame on someone ASAP. One of them is living well with a girlfriend and plans to get a degree, travel and get his drivers license. Another got the fuck outta dodge as soon as he was released and moved far away somewhere, and the last is a total recluse and is

Just a tragic story in general and this is what terrifies me about our justice system. This and Shawshank :)

One of the most controversial murder investigations in United States history. This is one of the reasons that I oppose the death penalty.
