Fascinating
13 May 2018 | by ozzwald1See all my reviews

I remember my mom calling to tell me that I should turn on the news and watch this story about a pizza guy who robbed a bank. I remember an update here and there and would occasionally think of the story and google to see if there had been any developments. Upon reading an article about this documentary, I cleared what I had for the following day (today) and binged the four episodes.

I wish I had a dollar for every time I muttered "huh", or "wow" or actually laughed out loud. The director does a phenomenal job of letting the story tell itself and only gets involved to really, really dive in on the major details that make this story even more incredible than you can imagine.

I thoroughly enjoyed every minute, it's a must watch even if you're aren't a true crime buff.
