West Of Memphis (2012) – A Quick Capsule Review (Revisited)

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review
West Of Memphis is one of the most engaging, tense and fascinating films i have seen in 2012.  Not documentary.  Film.  An unbelievable story, about an unbelievable set of events, Memphis tacks this familiar case from origins up to date, leaving you in no uncertain terms where the filmmakers and their many supporters lay their suspicions.  Emotionally charged and simply brilliant.

Best Bit: That was nearly 3 hours?  Flies past.

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Andy Whitfield had ‘It’. He was charismatic, charming and lit up the screen.  After years as a jobbing actor and model he was on the verge of his big break when he was struck down with a super aggressive cancer that would eventually take his life. This documentry looks at his last months, an intimate, emtional and at times heart breaking portrait of the end of someones life.  It’s everything you’d expect.  And yes it’s a hard watch seeing the once strong, cut Whitfiled broken down to a broken phsycial presenace.  So not an easy watch for sure but an essential one none the less.

Best Bit: Whitfield’s & his wifes never give up spirit

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream (It’s on Netflix)

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
There’s probably an interesting documentary in Lo And Behold, sadly it’s surrounded in a pretentious mess. Yup Herzog is a real take it or leave it presence and whilst sometimes he works really well others, like here, do not and you are very much left with the realisation that you’ve just wasted a few hours of your life. Pretentious drivel.

Best Bit: I have no idea…

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Avoid
