A rough but engrossing sketch of what freedom feels like, and what it costs, for seven men who've endured that national nightmare.

April 7, 2006
The scope of the problem, with likely thousands of innocent people incarcerated thanks mostly to errant eyewitness testimony, should give pause to anyone who thinks that life is as simple as black and white, innocent and guilty.

This is no-frills filmmaking and may be a little talky, but it's also very well-made, powerful stuff, and it should be seen by anyone who has questions about the American justice system.

...terrific agitprop journalism/analysis...
February 11, 2006
Sanders has an important message, unfortunately diluted by unimaginative shooting and insufficient editing.
February 10, 2006
Informative (we learn, for example, that exonerees are generally given no follow-up assistance upon release, as parolees are) and deeply moving.

February 3, 2006
Sanders is more interested in specific human struggles than in larger political points, but she knows these men form a mosaic with a message that's unmistakable.
