Documentary on the Friedmans, a seemingly typical, upper-middle-class Jewish family whose world is instantly transformed when the father and his youngest son are arrested and charged with shocking and horrible crimes.
A groundbreaking six-part documentary directed and produced by Andrew Jarecki and produced and shot by Marc Smerling (the Oscar nominated behind "Capturing the Friedmans (2003)") delves into the strange history of real estate heir Robert Durst, long suspected in the still-unsolved 1982 disappearance of his wife as well as the subsequent murders of family friend Susan Berman and neighbor Morris Black. It features an extended, revealing interview with Durst himself, with whom Jarecki developed a unique relationship following the release of "All Good Things (2010)", Jarecki's 2010 feature about Durst's life starring Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst. "The Jinx" results from nearly a decade of research by the filmmakers, who expose police files, key witnesses, never-before-seen footage, private prison recordings, and thousands of pages of formerly hidden documents.

This is one of those movies\docs, that you'll find yourself waiting and
crying for more and more ...still, you'll have the chance to drown into
six episodes of a pure crime and suspense gem. I am I fan of shows such
as True Detective, Fargo, etc, but this one, you'll have to see with a
different eye, the eye that allow you to see through the detectives,
director and, the killers eye ! Something that I do believe was never
done before and that's what keeps this show one (or a thousand)steps
further.Every time i do the shows review is because i do believe some
shows are more than just good or great, they are imperative to
watch,because we cannot pass through life without paying attention to
some things that are really worth to be noticed, a lot of rubbish is
dumped on TV ,but a lot of art is also available , you just have to
make a choice,and i really want you to chose this one here ;)
