    Paradise Lost 3 never loses sight of the sickening black humor of it all--how Echols, Baldwin, and Misskelley became, in effect, mere extras in a shadowplay about the omnipotence of the state. In the shadow of such sickness, all the personal dramas can't help but pale, but there are still surprising and powerful moments.

    The hallmark of all three films has been their understanding and embrace of subjects' self-presentations./

    The new film, despite the astounding story it tells, is the most conventional, least urgent and, cinematically, the least interesting of the three.

    Paradise Lost 3 is perhaps the most interesting and well-made film of the trilogy
