I remember where I was when...

One of he best documentaries that I have ever seen. Yes, this film re-hashes the whole O.J. saga one more time, but this time, it's done very well. But, the crux of this film is about race; how race played into the verdict, how race was treated by the LAPD, and how African Americans felt in L.A.
The film is split into five parts, Part One is about O.J. as American hero. This covers his time at USC and the NFL plus his post-football career until the early '80s. Part Two O.J. is hardly even mentioned or seen, it's about race relations in L.A. from the turbulent 60s through Rodney King in '92. Part Three gets to the meat of the documentary. 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-trial and then the infamous Las Vegas heist that he is currently in prison for.
