Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
A strange one this. Neither a true documentary or reconstruction, Casting JonBenet takes a side says look at one of the most famous unsolved cases of the 20th century. From talking heads to awkward auditions, from opinion to loosely put together facts, it’s almost impossible to describe this movie other than saying it’s probably not for everyone but is something you have to watch if you have even a passing interest in this story.
Best Bit: The last scene is stunningly put together
