Critic Reviews for Amanda Knox
Rather, beneath the film's superficial status as a simple, factual summary of events, lies a tongue-in-cheek, cutting and ultimately chilling critique of sensationalism, selfishness and self-delusion.
Eventually, the missing pieces -- and the Amanda Knox case is undoubtedly one of missing pieces -- outshine the compelling elements the doc does provide (again, Amanda Knox! as primary talking head!), leaving audiences only wanting more.
For a viewer who chose to avoid the salacious, never-ending TV and tabloid coverage of its namesake, Amanda Knox makes for succinct, involving viewing.
While [the documentarians] deserve plaudits for convincing Knox to talk to them, they hardly miss a chance, themselves, to exploit both her looks and her tears.
For such a sedate film, Amanda Knox achieves a surprisingly moving climax.
Audience Reviews for Amanda Knox
An interesting documentary that feels too short, not offering as much information about the case as it should, but at least takes an objective look at what happened and exposes the sheer incompetence of the investigators and lack of ethics of unscrupulous journalists.
Okay documentary which didn't convince me at all that this girl is innocent (or guilty).
A righteously angry documentary that doesn't necessarily 100% prove Knox's innocence but DOES show the witch hunt she endured from police and media and the gross misogyny she was subjected to. As such, this fascinating film goes some way to re-humanising Knox whilst shedding light on an investigation that had heavy bias and was conducted with less than pristine procedure.
