Rick Dabagian’s review:
Documentary from 1988. I don't think it spoils anything to know some details, as they are listed in most synopses. Randall Adams is wrongly convicted of murdering a police office and he is sentenced to death. The film is ultimately, and amazingly, what freed him.
This is an amazing story, and I had trouble rating it. Based on the story alone, and what it accomplished, it deserves a high score. The film itself maybe wasn't as "entertaining" as some docs, but you can tell this wasn't manipulated at all, it was the facts, plain and simple. And that is scary. It makes me hate people and how god damn stupid some people are, and how god damn selfish others are. It also makes you think of how many other people were in the same situation. ugh
