The Washington Post

A pointless point-by-point


What was the point of the July 15 Style article “‘Girl in the Picture’ is as astonishin­g as it is horrifying”? It wasn’t a review of the documentar­y “Girl in the Picture” but merely a point-by-point recounting of the many twists, turns and surprises of the story, up to the final scene. No “spoiler alert” warning, no commentary, no reason to watch after reading.

I’m not generally a true-crime aficionado, but I stumbled onto the film and couldn’t turn away. Anyone reading this article first was denied that experience.
