Seldom has a film inspired so much dislike in viewers towards the very system designed to protect them.

The new film, despite the astounding story it tells, is the most conventional, least urgent and, cinematically, the least interesting of the three.

In the shadow of such sickness, all the personal dramas can't help but pale, but there are still surprising and powerful moments.

Paradise Lost 3 is perhaps the most interesting and well-made film of the trilogy.

Beyond being an articulate examination of the case, the conclusion of the film will leave you with all kinds of questions to ponder about what justice in our legal system really means.

This third film, an inarguably powerful knockout punch, reminds us of the documentary film's power to change people's lives.

The new film is more informational than resonant. But you can still sense a vacuum, a rat pit of stories waiting to be unearthed. The dark something that triggered the whole ordeal in West Memphis is still out there.

Film Journal International

The conclusion to the trilogy about the plight of three wrongly convicted men has an intriguingly new, if bittersweet, slant. It's an understatement to say that the documentary format comes off a lot better than the justice system.

[U]pdate[s,] reinterprets the original material and incorporates old outtakes and photographs. . .for comprehensive forensic and legal analysis [but] confusingly organized.

More a glorified DVD supplement than a documentary.

Destined to rank as one of the major achievements in American documentary, the Paradise Lost project comes to a presumed end with Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory.
