      Joel C Well made, well paced documentary. The whole mob mentality humans get into is disgusting and pitiful. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/16/21 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Jason Bailey Flavorwire No one gets away from 'Captivated' clean: not the viewer, not the participants, not even the filmmaker. Jun 18, 2016 Full Review Melissa Maerz Entertainment Weekly I still don't know if Smart is innocent. No one outside the case ever will. But watching Captivated certainly made me reconsider why I assumed she was guilty in the first place. Aug 21, 2015 Full Review Amy Nicholson L.A. Weekly Zagar stops just short of arguing for Smart's innocence, but he pokes enough holes in our perception of the facts. Aug 21, 2015 Full Review Christopher Campbell Nonfics Maybe the best true crime documentary to deal with perspective more than guilt or innocence since The Thin Blue Line. Rated: 4/5 Aug 18, 2014 Full Review Roger Catlin rogercatlin.com Overall the case continues to intrigue - now for whether we missed the point all along Aug 18, 2014 Full Review Austin Trunick Under the Radar Although it doesn't attempt to supply an answer to the question of "did she do it?", Captivated recaps [Smart's] case in a way that feels almost as compelling as the original trial. Rated: 6.5/10 Aug 18, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews
