It can’t help but feel exploitative. In an attempt to seem self-reflexive, the movie vampirically collects and draws from the actors’ experiences in order to make its own shoddily conceived points about “the public.” But Green is a member of that public, too. For all she takes from her actors, Green gives very little of herself. And for all that her documentary has to say about the public, it has almost nothing to say about the media influencing that public — i.e., true-crime documentaries like this one.

Not a fan.
