Editorial Reviews

Village Voice - Joy Press
"The Staircase [is] a remarkable eight-part documentary that offers an intimate, vérité glimpse of a very sensationalistic trial...."
New York Times
"...not only is the editing prize-worthy, but the whole film is also so brilliantly conceived, reported, filmed and paced that you may come to wish it were twice as long."
