The Ultimate Murder Mystery
25 February 2002 | by (Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I have always been fascinated by the Lucan story, perhaps contributed to the fact is that nearby where I live was an old dilapidated house, which belonged to the Lucans, and when I was a child I always thought that the ghastly deeds had been carried out there!!!

Anyway, the film is a kind of docu-drama, which flicks between the events of the time, and a meeting in 1997 between a journalist and a policeman who was on the case.

If you like a good murder mystery, or are just fascinated by the Lucan story, then it's definitely worth a watch. What is interesting is that new facts about Lucan and the whole story come to light - did he really murder the Nanny after all? What was his motive? Was it an elaborate setup that went wrong? And what did the Greyhound boss have to do with it all? Did Lucan kill himself, was he murdered in a bourgeois conspiracy or is he simply on the run?

These questions and more will be revealed!
