Meh.... not what I was expecting

Wow! Sad to say that this movie was not all that it was hyped up to be. I am a documentary movie junkie and was so excited to see this for quiet a while... yet this movie could have easily been a 48 hour mystery or dateline episode.
While it’s an interesting story with awesome potential it was missing something for me. It was a long road (a two hour drive) to nowhere..
..relying on the subtitles for almost an hour while Jen spoke in German (even though he can in fact speak English); the randomness of the advocates and lawyers back stories and interviews... the detective work and conspiracy theories that again led nowehere..
I gave it four stars because it’s just not in my nature to give anything is worth watching eventually.. especially if your into True Crime stories and it’s free. No rush. Not a Must See.

Being that I grew up in the Bedford, Va. area, I have closely followed this horrendous murder and the despicable justice system in the state of Va. Jens, a brilliant young man, met the devil when he attended UVA. There are three victims of Elizabeth Haysom. Jens, my heart goes out to you, so happy after three decades of being incarcerated you are finally going home. May you live your life in peace. Elizabeth Haysom, you are the devil incarnate, thankfully, you will never live in my country again. Hopefully, your life in Canada will be nothing but pure hell for you.

Hard to support Jens

It’s a little hard to get on this band wagon. How can the criminal justice system be viewed as ineffective when Jens begins the whole process by confessing? He readily admits that he offered his confession to help Elizabeth. This is no coerced confession. He intentionally attempted to thwart the criminal justice system in his bid to save Elizabeth. How do you expect the system to work properly if you intentionally take actions to prevent it from working? I have no pity for him. Do we really want to establish precedence for this behavior in criminal cases? Do we want people to offer false confessions to save the primary perpetrator(s) only to be exonerated later? Jens may be smart but it appears his narcissism got in the way. Having expressed my opinion on his bid to get his conviction thrown out, I do believe he has served enough time given his age at the time of the crime.

Only to Explore the Reason for Murder
Verified purchase
This is a true story of over indulged lying murderous teenagers. They both come off as coming from patrician families; they spoke in such upper crust tones as they described how the girl's parents were murdered. With no real reason for murder, these despicable people acted like it was just another day at the beach. Can't see the attraction between these two, except that she would give him sex. What she saw in him, was I guess, a partner in crime.

It is completely tragic that Jens, at the naive and tender age of 18, encountered the psychopath Elizabeth in his first days of attending UVA. He quickly became enmeshed with her, mentally and physically. Parents send their kids off to college to become educated and prepare for success in life. What a nightmare for his parents. Whether he was complicit as accomplice, actually committed the murders (doubtful), or was completely unaware of her actions on the night of the murders, his life is ruined.

Here we go again...yet still it's hard to look away.
Verified purchase
Yet another tale of twisted and irreconcilable human behavior, and a miscarriage of justice, as they say. This film reflects the varied and often perplexing lacuna of life. "Jury of your peers" is a joke in this country. See for yourself.
