“Amanda Knox” is the latest true crime documentary to receive rave reviews from almost every television critic.

The Netflix documentary, which has a 91 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, examines the Amanda Knox murder trial and features Knox herself. Knox was accused of and sent to prison for the murder of her roommate in Italy. Then, she was acquitted in 2011, and in 2015 she was exonerated by the Supreme Court of Cassation.

In his review of the film, Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times writes, “Did she or didn’t she? That is the question “Amanda Knox” explores with laser-like precision.”

Out of seclusion

Knox has emerged from seclusion, appearing on “Good Morning America” to promote the new Netflix documentary about her murder trial in Italy. Amanda Knox says in a teaser video, “If I’m guilty it means that I am the ultimate figure to fear because I’m not the obvious one. If I’m innocent it means that everyone’s vulnerable.”

The documentary also features her ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, who was accused alongside her in the 2007 murder of her roommate.
