O.J.: Made in America, is a 7 hour and 43 minutes documentary that investigates one of the most infamous murder cases in American history. Unlike FX’s The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, director Ezra Edelman chose to start the narrative in the 1960s, placing O.J. in the midst of mounting racial tensions and football stardom. In a review of the documentary, the New York Times wrote, “For its part, ‘O.J.: Made in America,’ directed by Ezra Edelman, has the grandeur and authority of the best long-form nonfiction. If it were a book, it could sit on the shelf alongside ‘The Executioner’s Song’ by Norman Mailer and the great biographical works of Robert Caro.”
