Much has already been said about the West Memphis Three. The story of the young Arkansas men -- Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley and Jason Baldwin -- who were jailed in the 1993 murder of three young boys in what was claimed to be a satanic ritual became a cause célèbre as evidence mounted that the accused were the victims of a small-town witch hunt.

Even for those who've seen Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky's "Paradise Lost" trilogy on the case and devoured every word in the media, West of Memphis is still intriguing, if a bit long.
