Synopsis: An examination of a failure of justice in the case against the West Memphis Three.

Release Date:  December 25, 2012

Thoughts: Though the case of the West Memphis Three has been well-documented in the three Paradise Lost films, West of Memphis presents another look into the devious child murders that rocked a small town and the witch hunt that saw three men on the cusp of adulthood and the wrong side of the tracks be targeted as the culprits.  Produced by Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, West of Memphis looks to be another strong documentary arriving in theaters just in time to provide strong true crime counter-programming to the usual holiday fare.  Sign me up.
