The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst 2015, 2024 / This deep dive into the baffling crimes of a wealthy heir doubles as a breakthrough in true crime and an excellent piece of investigative reportage


Anyone tired of the same old cliches found in true crime shows (and there are a lot of them) will feel reinvigorated watching The Jinx. Director Andrew Jarecki goes one step further from the usual fare by interrogating the subject, himself an unnerving character, and unearthing evidence that changes the trajectory of his story. The Jinx is a great true crime documentary in that it’s gripping and well-researched, but it’s also great television, point blank. It’s thought-provoking, unsettling, and strives to always keep the viewer at the edge of their seat.
