Subterranean Cinema's rating of the film West of Memphis

The film certainly has it's moments, especially the segments about Terry Hobbs, who I believe is the real killer. But it spends far too much time on the relationship between Damien Echols and his girlfriend. I am glad that Damien has found his soulmate and is a free man, but it really has nothing to do with the injustices of this case. The "Paradise Lost" films are essential viewing, this is not.
