West of Memphis Blu-ray

Posted May 9, 2013 05:29 PM by Webmaster

Sony PicturesSony Pictures Home Entertainment has revealed that it is preparing for Blu-ray director Amy Berg's documentary West Of Memphis (2012). Nominated for Critics Choice Award for Best Documentary Feature at the Broadcast Film Critics Association Awards, West of Memphis will be available for purchase on August 6th.

West of Memphis tells the untold story behind an extraordinary and desperate fight to bring the truth to light; a fight to stop the State of Arkansas from killing an innocent man.

Starting with a searing examination of the police investigation into the 1993 murders of three, eight-year-old boys Christopher Byers, Steven Branch and Michael Moore in the small town of West Memphis, Arkansas, the film goes on to uncover new evidence surrounding the arrest and conviction of the other three victims of this shocking crime Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley. All three were teenagers when they became the target of the police investigation; all three went on to lose 18 years of their lives imprisoned for crimes they did not commit.

How the documentary came to be, is in itself a key part of the story of Damien Echols' fight to save his own life. The film reveals how close he, his wife Lorri Davis, along with his legal team, friends and supporters, came to losing that battle. But as Echols, who spent eighteen years on death row, himself has stated " in the face of such horror, in the face of resounding grief and pain, you cannot give up you must never give up."

Most unnecessary documentary in the history of filmmaking and a nauseating, starfucking, back slapping affair from the hack himself.

Why is the Paradise Lost series not released and yet this tripe is?

Conservative trash. It did everything possible to demonize these poor guys, just so the filmmakers could make some money.

@blipsycat: The VERY few folks here in Arkansas (mainly working for the conservative Little Rock daily paper) who still think the WM3 are guilty would call this film (and the Paradise Lost series) "liberal trash".

@Zackisthewalrus: I don't know what movie YOU saw, but I saw a movie that demonized the West Memphis Three. And it's not hard to see why. This is like the 4th movie they've made about them, so they're clearly bringing in money. And the more people hate them, the more likely they are to end up getting arrested. Which means more chances for sequels and more chances to sell the existing movies, so the studios can get more money.

To put in succinctly: Demonizing the West Memphis Three brings in money, and giant corporations (such as Sony) care about money a lot more than they care about justice.

@blipsycat This is faulty reasoning. I haven't seen the film but to think a corporation would put out a film to demonize these people so that they end up being arrested (they are released though so I don't know what you're on about) so that they could make more money? Aren't there easier ways to make money than to try to frame people.

@blipsycat I really doubt that you watched it. And if you did, I doubt that you finished it. The film tries to take an objective view of the events, but is on the side of the WM3 for most of the journey. If you did not finish it, I sincerely recommend that you do.

And what are you talking about "the more likely they'll get arrested" They're FREE and it's very much thanks to the support from the many, many people who've helped investigate the case and prove the WM3's innocence. The filmmakers have played a pretty large role in helping the WM3 too, with Peter Jackson and his wife working directly with Damien Echols and his wife.

Can't wait to pick this up on Blu-ray, I have the 3 Paradise Lost films on dvd and IMO West of Memphis is the best out of the 4 films.

I honestly have no idea what you're talking about @blipsycat.

Not only does "West of Memphis" NOT demonize the WM3, it depicts how they were targeted by inept cops, and then railroaded by a possibly corrupt judicial system. Not only does it exonerate them via DNA testing, it also strongly points the finger at another suspect.
