Filmmaker Andrew Jarecki examines the complicated life of reclusive real estate icon, Robert Durst, the key suspect in a series of unsolved crimes.

1) Did you like it?

I LOVED IT. The final episode actually gave me goosebumps.

2) Why?

I love this new style of documentary–shot in a way where you actually feel like you are watching fiction because it is so enthralling. Not only was the content fascinating (do not look up anything on it before watching as the internet is all spoilers!) but I also thought the direction was very well done.

3) “You would enjoy this TV series if…”

I can’t imagine anyone not enjoying this–it appeals to all audiences!

4) “This movie made me think about…”

Robert Durst and murders. It also made me think about how much difference really good lawyers can make to the way we perceive something. It’s also great because it’s a mini-series.

5) Overall rating?
