Must-Watch Documentary

I haven't been watching a ton of documentaries lately because I am mostly watching things to relax and decompress after a long week. However, everyone needs to watch the Amanda Knox documentary. I watched it over three days, and I was so intrigued by it. I think about it all the time now.


I can remember the Amanda Knox case happening. I remember hearing about it and seeing images of her, but I didn't know what actually happened. I was in elementary school during the case, so I was too young to fully understand the severity of what was going on. The documentary, however, does an amazing job of explaining everything that went down. 

I think what was most interesting to me was the media response because it related to what we had been talking about in my mass communications class. The media jumped all over this, and basically declared Amanda Knox guilty even before the trial. The frenzy surrounding the case and trial was insane, and journalists did some pretty irresponsible things to add to the craziness. 

I highly recommend to everyone no matter what your interests are.
