Unexpectedly Solid Documentary
23 November 2017 | by cksmith51See all my reviews

Shot in the Dark is an intriguing look into the work life of stringers, late night freelance cameramen. As a Netflix series, this 8-episode inside-look is well produced and a lot more engaging than one would expect. Between unexpected danger and impressive response time, Shot in the Dark provides you with a close up experience of some of the more intense things that happen after dark.
