Critic Reviews for The Staircase
So brilliantly conceived, reported, filmed and paced that you may come to wish it were twice as long.
The Staircase engenders a good deal of sympathy for the accused and especially for his family, while leaving the question of his guilt wide open.
A remarkable eight-part documentary that offers an intimate, vérité glimpse of a very sensationalistic trial.
One of the most engrossing films that I've ever seen. If all television was this good, we could get rid of theaters.
