¹ Ezra Edelman's epic five-part, nearly eight-hour ESPN 30 for 30 documentary is a masterful narrative encapsulation of race relations in modern America seen through the life and times of the notorious O.J. Simpson and his lasting cultural legacy/relevancy. O.J.: Made in America proves itself to be essential storytelling as an unflinching dissection of how one man's life represented all the ills and ideals of celebrity culture in the twentieth century. The film manages to deftly say so much more about the American public than its actual subject by investigating every single element that made the infamous figure turned convict who he was.
