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.

Aug 21, 2015 | Full Review…

All the material in Captivated that involves media distortion and justice is relatively interesting.

Aug 18, 2014 | Full Review…

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.

Aug 18, 2014 | Full Review…

[A] well-crafted but frankly nonessential documentary.
