Robert Durst agreed to be interviewed after he saw Andrew Jarecki's film All Good Things, and wanted to give his side of the story. Durst seeing the film, led to Jarecki being contacted to create this documentary. See more »
This is a documentary which follows Andrew Jarecki, as he pulls together the story of Robert Durst, who is suspected of killing his wife along with two others.
Robert Durst is part of the Durst family, a prominent property investment force in New York. Andrew Jarecki interviews Robert Durst extensively, along with other key players. He and his team are party to the uncovering of new evidence for these old crimes.
Amazingly, the tension is built and sustained then built again and again - I am sure whether to congratulate Andrew Jarecki as incredibly lucky for the revelations he gets to reveal, or his mastery as a film maker.
I believe that this series is a rare combination of both.
