Confession or Not?
O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession? (2018)

*** (out of 4)

If you're familiar with the O.J. Simpson case then you'll remember that he wrote a hypothetical book detailing what happened the night his ex-wife and her friend was murdered. The point of the book was to have O.J. give a "fake" confession to the murders. There was a huge backlash against the book and the filmed interview was put into the vault.

After the success of the ESPN documentary and the FX mini-series, it was clear that Fox would then pull the interview out of the closet and let the public see it. They've added a commentary section hosted by Soledad O'Brien who has a panel discussing what Simpson says. Christopher Dardin, interviewer Judith Regan and a friend of Nicole are on hand to discuss what they think about the confession.

As the special clearly points out, this confession will be proof to some that Simpson did it and there will still be others who don't buy it. Personally speaking, I'm not exactly sure what O.J. was thinking by doing this. It was 2006 so perhaps he needed money but seriously? Why would somene "hypothetically" confess to a murder? If it was for the money why not just confess or not do it at all? I'm just really confused as to what the point of this interview was from Simpson's point of view.

As far as the interview itself, it's somewhat compelling but there's no real drama here. The interviewer never really goes after Simpson or asks any good questions but during the "current" round table she says that she was afraid Simpson would walk off and cut the interview short so she didn't go after him. That's too bad because Simpson pretty much just talks and never really has to explain himself.

So, is this really a confession? Who knows what the truth is. Simpson's "confession" puts him at the scene of the crime and he talks about having a knife. He also talks about a second person being there. Who is this second person? He talks about having a shouting match with Goldman so are there any witnesses that heard this arguing?

I'm an O.J. buff and will watch anything that deals with the subject. Was this worth watching? It was but after all of these years hearing about it, the end result is somewhat of a letdown.
