Recovering from AWP, Jaimee and I devoted a good part of the last day and a half to watching Jean-Xavier de Lestrade's The Staircase
, a documentary devoted that to other
Durham legal debacle, the Michael Peterson murder trial
. It's damn good. I won't say much about it because I imagine people will want to watch it, but if you already know the outcome, have already seen the film, or think you never will, there's some interesting controversy
around the movie's bias
. On this point I really have to agree; I'm usually fairly skeptical, and well-aware that everything I know about the case I learned from watching this movie—all the same, by the last episode I was behind Peterson's defense 100%.
