American Tragedy (2000) Review
(More customer reviews)This is a tape of the made for television movie about the behind the scenes activities of the defense in the OJ Simpson trial. This movie spares no one and paints a very unfavorable view of all the lawyers. The movie is based on Robert Cardasians (sp?) book. No one at the end of the trial has any doubt that OJ is the murderer or a violent person as evidenced by Johnny Cochrans comment to one of his colleagues after OJ becomes enraged with him "I was just glad I didn't have long blond hair". The defense often views Judge Ito as a dunce, laughing after he becomes outraged with their antics. The most interesting thing is the lawyers at one point realize OJ is in many ways smarter and more talented than all his lawyers at formulating strategy and getting a team to work together. However, OJ is portrayed as a very violent and dispicable individual.
