The O.J. Verdict, a Frontline documentary, details the public’s reaction to the verdict reached in the controversial O.J. Simpson case. It provides background details leading up to the case, key points of evidence and argumentation, and discusses the role that race played in the trial and media coverage of the event. Commentary is provided from differing points of view.
I really enjoyed this documentary as it was very informative and takes a balanced approach to the trial. For those who are uninformed on the case, it provides good details on why this was such a big case and the role it played in the development of criminal justice. Overall, the commentary was great and provided insight into the many facets of this case that made it so controversial.
