‘The Keepers’ Is the Best True-Crime Docuseries Yet

25 May 2017 8:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

One of the most distinctive characteristics of Netflix’s “The Keepers,” a seven-part docuseries that premiered May 19, is that nearly every speaking character is a middle-aged woman. This is rare enough that it begins to be surprising, and soon after that, it becomes one of the defining elements of the show — following an interviewee into her living room as she is accompanied by her five small dogs, or reminiscing with another about her loving husband, now deceased. The B-roll notices things like the decorations on the walls, the family photos on the mantle, and the niceties of small talk. These are no Hollywood-friendly million-dollar kitchens, or carefully composed sitcom living rooms. The subjects of “The Keepers” keep cozy homes, in an unassuming, uncontrived way that indicates much about them. In this largely Catholic, working-to-middle class community of Baltimore, “The Keepers” manages to convey a mindset and shared, accepted values by just following the interviewees home.

The 7 Best Endings to HBO Murder Mysteries

3 April 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

While all great stories need one helluva ending to put them over the top, murder mysteries are particularly reliant on the final reveal. Those final moments don’t have to be overly twisty or even surprising. The ending doesn’t need to reinvent the genre or go out of the way to be different. The final unveiling just needs to satisfy the story that preceded it — which, usually, is about more than just solving the mystery. Heck, sometimes there doesn’t even need to be a murder — but we’ll get to that.

Fight the power: documentaries to unleash the activist in you

Children in poverty, rape in the military, mass murderers at large … Oscar-nominated director Lucy Walker picks 10 powerful documentaries to galvanise you into action

More inspiring culture for 2017

The documentaries praised on these pages are all ones that fired me up, galvanised me into action, which are also magnificent works of film-making well worth watching now. I’m proud to look around and, as that there are far too many non-fiction films to choose from, please forgive the omissions as I’m spoiled for choice by my inspiring film-maker colleagues.

There are brilliantly energising films that have brought real-world justice, such as The Central Park Five (directed by Ken Burns, Sarah Burns, David McMahon) about five black and Latino teenagers wrongly convicted of raping of a white woman jogging in New York in 1989. In this category, I would also mention The Jinx (directed by Andrew Jarecki) about the real estate heir Robert Durst, »
