Movie Reviews

  • thick with reenactments and cute cutaways, the movie evolves into a cultural inquisition, following this stranger through the strange land of bad-news America, where the truth is still waiting to be exhumed
    by Michael Atkinson [Village Voice ]
  • the way Layton parcels out information makes this story as strange and fascinating as anyone could desire
    3.5 of 4 by Farran Smith Nehme [New York Post ]
  • offers hard speculation and harder truths. You won't be able to get it out of your head
    3 of 4 by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone ]
  • doesn't just offer up the closest thing to the honest truth in a still slippery case, it doles out the real-life revelations with a skilled precision that keeps the film exciting without ever becoming exploitative
    Review rate : B+ by William Goss [ ]
  • director Bart Layton masterfully blends traditional documentary with dramatic reconstructions
    by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • a true story that is so oh wow! unbelievable, so deeply, compellingly stranger than fiction, that you don't so much watch the film as get addicted to it
    Review rate : A- by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • a good "Unsolved Mysteries" episode
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
