A gripping murder mystery about the fated coupling of a pair of calculating romantics too smart for their own good, and the limits of the American justice system.
Featuring compelling real-life figures who practically invite casting guesses for the inevitable Hollywood dramatization, Killing for Love should easily satisfy viewers who can't get enough of this stuff.
Probably dives into the weeds too quickly and could have used a tighter edit. Still, drawing on a wealth of courtroom video, the film lays out a persuasive argument for reasonable doubt.
While Killing for Love ends up being a call for justice, it is framed as a psychological thriller and a court drama, an exploration of what happened within the young couple and the Haysom family.
You don't so much watch Killing For Love as you completely absorb it.
Steinberger and Vetter create a haunting atmosphere of mania and madness, as when they transition to photos of Derek and Nancy during Elizabeth's cold, eerie testimony.
A bloody 1985 double homicide and the media hysteria that encircled it are revisited in this deeply sourced but frustrating investigation of whether justice was truly served.
An absorbing true crime documentary.
Familiar and satisfying...continues in the "New True Crime" tradition.
