NEW YORK TIMES CRITICS' PICK
"What emerges is less a portrait of an accused killer than a glaring revelation of unprincipled journalism and unapologetic sexism.. Amanda Knox is a savage denunciation of the way entertainment imperatives have corrupted the news media. At this singular moment in our political history, the resonance is deafening."
