Critic Reviews for Who Killed Garrett Phillips? Miniseries

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (6)

Garbus follows these proceedings closely, building suspense and also outrage at the prosecution's crass attempts to manipulate witness testimony, distort facts, and offer spurious evidence.

"Who Killed Garrett Phillips?" is at its best when it's most detailed, offering lengthy segments from the aforementioned interrogation and text messages and emails between people involved in the case.

Jul 23, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

As is her custom, Garbus, who also helmed "Bobby Fischer Against the World," gets amazing access.

Until we cut this cancer from our society, there will never be justice for Garrett Phillips or thousands of other victims.

Jul 24, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

A stunning-and enraging-examination of race and the U.S. criminal justice system.

Jul 24, 2019 | Full Review…

A toxic mystery masterfully told by director Liz Garbus.

Jul 24, 2019 | Full Review…

Documentaries like this can easily become one-sided affairs by virtue of which figures are willing or able to go on the record. Here, Garbus gets solid representation of principals on both sides.

Jul 23, 2019 | Full Review…

The film leaves the question in its title unanswered, as Garbus gives her sources an opportunity to speak (or not) about the choices they made. Ambiguity is not a flaw here; in fact, it's what makes this story so compelling, so infuriating and so sad.

Jul 22, 2019 | Full Review…

The strength of "Who Killed Garrett Phillips?" isn't just about what's on screen but how it got there, i.e., the assembling of parts -- audio, video, interviews, testimony. These are allowed to speak for themselves.
