This film is worth seeing, if only to generate a discussion about what should be included in a documentary. Should there be background music? Should there be reenactments? Should there be artistic touches? What I think is, does it fit the subject? In this particular case, I believe it does. History is a mixture of facts and testimony/reportage; whether Morris balances the two sides properly is a matter of opinion. I think he comes pretty close to getting it right but the result is worth watching.
I am fascinated by Errol Morris's style of documentary - allow people to talk and talk and it's amazing what they will reveal about themselves and the stories they are trying to tell.
This is a documentary about the murder of a Dallas police officer, directed by Errol Morris and originally released as a motion picture in 1988.
The film tells the story of Randall Dale Adams, a man convicted and sentenced to life in prison for a murder he did not commit.
Adams' case was reviewed and he was released from prison approximately a year after the film's release.
It is a gripping and thought-provoking documentary with stylized reenactments, penetrating interviews and haunting original music.
Not bad. Done in a documentary/interview style.
This is an influential film that doesn't feel like homework to watch.
Excellent documentary on a grotesque miscarriage of justice. The film looks very dated now, but the story itself remains shocking and relevant.
