    NYFF REVIEW | "Paradise Lost 3" Ends a Saga of Injustice, But Many Questions Remain

    "Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory" premiered in September at the Toronto International Film Festival in an unfinished form because the film's real ending arrived, unexpectedly, a few weeks earlier. The men known as the "West Memphis 3," imprisoned while teenagers for crimes they likely didn't commit, spent 18 years behind bars. In August, they entered a trio of "Alford pleas," relying on a little-known law that allowed them to plead guilty while maintaining their innocence. Sentenced to time served, they went free that day. That meant 36-year-old Damien Echols evaded the death penalty; Jesse Misskelley and Jason Baldwin were released from their lif...

    Meet Buck Brannaman, the Real-Life Horse Whisperer & Subject of "Buck," Our DVD Pick of the Week

    Revered horse trainer and real-life cowboy Buck Brannaman is used to a busy, road tripping lifestyle. For three decades in clinics all over the U.S., Brannaman has taught horse owners what is commonly referred to as 'natural horsemanship': a philosophy of working with horses based on understanding how horses think and communicate. With this spring's release of "Buck," Cindy Meehl’s documentary on his life and troubled childhood, Brannaman became busier (and more popular) than ever. The film went on to exceed the wildest of expectations, grossing over $4 million at the domestic box office, making Brannaman a star on the doc circuit. It comes o...
