"I love this movie was made because its how I saw things at the time . I told someone after the trial that Jason did it and they thought I was crazy . Im making them watch this when it comes out . EVERYONE should see this!!!""The sad thing is nothing will ever be done because too many people will never let it happen . If they start looking at Jason than it would mean they were wrong about OJ and there was a conspiracy to convict him. I really believe Mr. Fung wanted to tell the truth but didnt want to lose his job ."

"Thank you very much for your courage to take on this very worthy battle and doing the job most are afraid to admit was never done. I feel like as close to 100% on the same page as your theory as I personally can be. Great Job!"
The film follows William Dear as he compiles evidence for over 16 years on the murders of O.J.’s wife, Nicole, and her friend, Ron Goldman. With video footage and evidence, the Director is able to create an incredibly compelling film that manages to make a 19.5 year old case very relevant again.
The film begins with a montage of news footage from the time of the double murders. The way that it intercuts with each other doesn’t only tell the audience the story of the case, it also manages to convey the sense of urgency that existed, which really puts the audience in the mindset of the time. The film doesn’t shy away from using the gruesome photos of the crime scene to emphasize the devastation the murders caused. Seeing the mangled bodies of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman puts everything in perspective like nothing else could, and I commend the filmmakers for not censoring the images for the film.
What really made the documentary compelling, other than the evidence that was gathered, was the way a mixture of footage, talking heads, and graphics were all used to prove points. Often, documentaries stick to talking heads, having people explaining everything to the camera rather than demonstrating the facts. Here, we even have transcripts from depositions read by voice actors so that the facts can be shown and also remain interesting to watch. The talking heads the film does have are all experts at what they do, which removes the documentary of much of the bias it would have if anyone connected to the Simpson family was interviewed.
The purpose of the documentary was to showcase that O.J. was innocent, and that the real murderer was likely his son, Jason. Over 16 years, William Dear and his team researched anything that might help find truth in the case, and over that time they accumulated evidence that clearly showcased O.J.’s innocence.
One may ask why Dear is so insistent on still pursuing O.J.’s innocence so long after the incident occurred and the accused was acquitted. O.J. was never convicted of the murder, so nobody really lost.
Nobody, other than all the people with Jason Simpson comes in contact with, who have to deal with his violent and erratic behavior. Even if justice is never really served, the filmmakers have put a compelling case into a great documentary, and anyone who has an opportunity to view it again, it is highly recommended.
