First impressions of the Lifetime movie

A good portion of twitterers were as confused by the case as by lifetime’s flashback/jumpback presentation of it.. you never really knew when a jumpback was coming..

Some of the sequencing was off  from the reality of when evidence was found. The movie made it look like AK was more guilty in the early part, and her easy-going nonchalant behavior seemed to support that, but then the forensic and other evidence takes back seat as the behavior and alibis are fleshed out.  The forensic evidence of the bra & knife DNA have a brief reappearance being attacked by the defense in the trial. And AK’s story doesn’t come across as contradictory as much as its stated by Mignini that she’s lying.

But with having two dramatizations of the events the night of the 1st:

  • Guede’s story (him running into RS), and
  • Mignini’s courtroom explanation backed by blurred-up flashes of RS & AK attacking meredith;

and with no clear telling of evidence/etc that points to one sequence being more credible then the other, it does seem to offer it up Knox’s guilt as an open question.
Drugs didn’t really have much of a presence in this telling of the case, just in the dramatization of scenes and ak being embarrassed having to reveal during the police questioning that she and raf smoked.

the after-show is talking about the headlines, but showing english & us newspapers. I constantly find that there are slights against the italian press that should properly be attributed to the US and UK press- more appropriately the tabloids.
