I liked it, but didn't love it. Before I say anything else, if you haven't done so already, check out the wikipedia page. Some very interesting things, wow en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capturing_the_Friedmans
Anyway, it was a fascinating story, very sad. I'm really not sure what to believe. [SPOILER!!!!!]When Jesse's lawyer was talking about Jesse basically confessing, that was strong evidence. But if the lawyer did make that story up to try and get leniency for Jesse, he would have a reason to deny it, but that would be pretty fucking bold. All the questioning of the children and all that stuff is pretty important also, but who knows what was left out. I really hope they weren't innocent, that would be terrible[/SPOILER]
Aside from that, I thought the movie was too much of the two less interesting characters, Elaine and David, as opposed to Jesse and Arnold, but the reasons for that are obvious
