Paradise Lost

Absolutely engrossed in this from start to finish, this doc from 1996 about a 1993 murder of three second-graders in West Memphis, Arkansas. The suspects, three outcast kids, look like scapegoats because of their Metallica t-shirts and their anti-social behavior. Yet, they never really seem too bothered about their fate, like it’s just one more slight the community have visited upon them. An updated Salem witch trials? The ending leaves with waaaay more questions than answers.
