AS WITH ANY true-crime documentary, the per­ti­nent ques­tion here is: is it go­ing to tell me def­i­nitely whether or not she’s guilty? The an­swer is — sort of. Although if you’re ex­pect­ing a metic­u­lous dig through the foren­sic ev­i­dence or ex­posé of the po­lice in­ter­ro­ga­tion tac­tics, you won’t find it here. They are part of the nar­ra­tive, but with just a slen­der run­ning time of 90 min­utes in which to also ex­am­ine the sala­cious trial by me­dia and take in in­sights from Amanda Knox, her co-ac­cused, Raf­faele Sol­lecito, lead in­ves­ti­ga­tor Gi­u­liano Mignini and odi­ous hack Nick Pisa, who cov­ered the trial, it’s a speedy tour through eight years of italian jus­tice. Or lack thereof.
