smndvdcl's rating of the film American Crime Story: The People V. OJ Simpson

Convoluted contexts. How trial-by-media as a catalyst for an investigation can escalate. The ambiguity of 'in the public interest' remains. Variables including gender, race and fame are raw in this real life case. Notions such as due process, innocent until proven guilty, evidence, suspicion, doubt and the right to a fair trial are in the spotlight here. Acrimony of the verdict and other interpretations remain.
