Yoav Potash's moving, vivid documentary "Crime After Crime" will make you both angry and tearful, sometimes at the same time.

It reminds us, once again, that little can be quite so riveting as a well-told story from a compelling talking head.

Though rife with talking-head interviews and straightforwardly shot, the movie is quietly riveting and cumulatively galling.

Audience Reviews for Crime After Crime

It's really disheartening that so many people are in jail because they had to protect themselves from serious abuse. This is one woman's story of serving her time for a murder she was involved in (i.e.,the murder of her abuser), and then an attempt to get her out of a life sentence she didn't deserve. The best part is actually that Steve Cooley, the attorney general who knew of her abuse and kept her in jail anyway, was not re-elected.

An incredible story. Breathtaking, suspenseful, emotionally intense, and somehow simultaneously inspiring and disturbing. My hat is off to the filmmaker and the people in this film.

It's no wonder so many young people hate upper class people in charge and distrust them. This is one of the more shameful things I have ever seen done to a poor person of any race, but so often poor black people get the shaft. This show was infuriating and heartbreaking at the same time, and bless those attorneys who help these people get the justice they so deserve.
