Yet another Paradise Lost: new movie about the West Memphis 3

I have blogged before about the movie Paradise Lost and the case of the West Memphis 3 and I just read that HBO is due to start showing the newest installment in the series.  This will be the third movie on the case of the trial of three young men for the murders of three eight-year-old boys in West Memphis, a small town in eastern Arkansas.  One of the kids confessed but then recanted; the others always maintained their innocence.  At their trials very little evidence was brought forward to connect them to the murders but they were all convicted. They were finally released last August. 

A film crew followed the case as it was being tried and eventually released an outstanding documentary called Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills.  A few years later, a "Paradise Lost 2."

Here is a link to Roger Ebert's comment on the new Paradise Lost 3.
