Fascinating documentary that does an excellent job of exploring the life and trial of O.J. Simpson. While I wish more people involved had decided to be interviewed, director Ezra Edelman managed to get some big names involved with his life and trial on hand. Plus Edelman goes deeper, looking at the factors of how Simpson grew up, his career and his life in Brentwood and the aftermath of the trial. I clearly remember the trial - you couldn't escape it - but it's more interesting to dig deeper and this documentary delivers.

It covers the abusive and then murderous relationship between O.J. and Nicole. Part Four is the trial and Part Five is the verdict, O.J.'s life post-t...
