Amanda Knox

Amanda Knox is a thoroughly intriguing Netflix documentary recounting the Seattle native’s arrest and trial for the 2007 murder of her roommate while studying abroad in Perugia, Italy. As Making A Murderer proved last Christmas break, Netflix knows how to make true crime content. But what sets stuff like Making a Murderer and HBO’s The Jinx a part from this documentary is that those subjects were relatively unknown by the general public, whereas Knox’s ordeal was heavily covered in real time by the American media and was even considered Italy’s “trial of the century.” Personally, I was too preoccupied with Xbox Live and Whitlow’s on Wilson dollar drafts back in 2007 to pay much attention to this developing story, so a lot of the film is brand new to me.  But for some of you this may be more of a refresher as opposed to learning anything new.  Tier 4
