Village Voice
What's remarkable about Scenes of a Crime, besides Hadaegh and Babcock's ability to stay out of the way of their story and resist flashy graphical flourishes, is the degree to which the events it reveals are business as usual. Full Review
Eric Hynes
Time Out New York
This impassioned documentary could have the same real-world impact as Errol Morris's "The Thin Blue Line," and help to free a wrongly convicted man. The filmmaking could be better, but it's hard to argue with that kind of potential. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
A cool documentary that makes the blood boil, it examines how people can be psychologically manipulated into confessing. Not only to crimes they may not have committed but, even worse, to crimes that may never have happened. Full Review
Nick Schager
Slant Magazine
A true-crime documentary of invigorating analytical clarity and evenhandedness. Full Review
Stephen Holden
The New York Times
This smart, cool-headed film, which has a "Rashomon"-like vision of the case, presents a disturbing picture of courtroom justice and how different people come to opposite conclusions, based on the same testimony. Full Review
