I still don't know if Smart is innocent. No one outside the case ever will. But watching Captivated certainly made me reconsider why I assumed she was guilty in the first place.
Zagar stops just short of arguing for Smart's innocence, but he pokes enough holes in our perception of the facts.
[A] full-bodied and thoughtful HBO documentary.
All the material in Captivated that involves media distortion and justice is relatively interesting.
The film is often just as coy and cagey as Ms. [Pamela] Smart (who is interviewed) and other central figures are when they talk about the crime and their role in it.
[A] well-crafted but frankly nonessential documentary.
No one gets away from 'Captivated' clean: not the viewer, not the participants, not even the filmmaker.
Maybe the best true crime documentary to deal with perspective more than guilt or innocence since The Thin Blue Line.
Overall the case continues to intrigue - now for whether we missed the point all along
Although it doesn't attempt to supply an answer to the question of "did she do it?", Captivated recaps [Smart's] case in a way that feels almost as compelling as the original trial.
Zagar successfully combats the images of [Pamela Smart's] past with more candid ones from the present.
Makes [its] point so strenuously and repetitiously that it becomes a tad exhausting.
Good footage, lots of opinions and views.
