"Equally moving, informative, and infuriating, Netflix’s “The Innocence Files” is one of the best true crime series ever made." - RogerEbert.com

 

"A damning portrait of an unforgiving, corrupt and frighteningly unreliable criminal justice system" - The Digital Wise

 

"Devastating" - The Independent

 

"Must-see" - The Daily Beast

"The Innocence Files is among the strongest documentary series about criminal justice I’ve ever seen." - VOX

"Essentially, The Innocence Files isn’t so much a series, but a case-by-case indictment of a system where being poor is the biggest crime of all.  Roger Ross Williams…takes a shocking case of miscarriage of justice and soaks it in the Mississippi cotton and corn patches of the institutionally poor. ... This story transcends... it’s a cry from the heart that can’t be contained." - Screendaily
