“A triumph of archival research, it’s also a masterpiece of insight, a rare documentary with the heft and sprawl of great literature.”
-A.O. Scott, The New York Times

“Exceptional. A movie so compelling you want it never to end. Edelman is a superb interviewer”
-Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

“Phenomenal. The best movie of the year”
-Wesley Morris, The New York Times’ Still Processing podcast

It is the defining cultural tale of modern America - a saga of race, celebrity, media, violence, and the criminal justice system. Two decades after its unforgettable climax, it continues to fascinate, polarize, and develop new chapters. Now, Peabody and Emmy-award winning director Ezra Edelman and the producers of ESPN’s “30 for 30” series have made it the subject of their most ambitious project yet.

Drawing upon more than seventy interviews with longtime friends and colleagues, the recognizable protagonists of the murder investigation, observers and commentators with distinct connections to the story, this docu-event is the film of the current moment. At the end of what seems like a search for the real truth about O.J. Simpson, what’s revealed just as powerfully is a collection of indelible, unshakeable, and haunting truths about the last half-century of American life.
