Whether he really is a man whom has fallen victim to horrific coincidence remains to be seen, but he seems to leave a trail of bodies and mystery wherever he goes.
His first wife, Kathleen Durst, disappeared without a trace in the winter of 1982. Durst’s best friend was found with a bullet in the back of her head in 2000 and in 2001 Durst’s neighbor was found beheaded and dismembered in the Galveston Bay located in Texas.
Watch this six-part series to find out, but make sure you’re shoes are tied, otherwise your socks will be blown right off!
What I loved: Director, Andrew Jarecki, is one of the first to actually interview Robert Durst. You get to see first-hand just how creepy and manipulating Durst truly is. Jarecki captures candid moments of Durst that personally made me sick to my stomach. Also, each episode has a “theme” such as Durst’s childhood, his marriage, the events leading up to his trial of the murder of Morris Black, and more. Lastly, the producers end up discovering more evidence than police were ever able to do, which makes for some damn good television.
What I didn’t: To avoid any spoilers, I will say this, I felt Jarecki left some questions unanswered. What has happened since the documentary wrapped up almost 2 years ago? What has Durst been up to? And what did Durst do with Morris Black's head?! Give us more, give us more! Here’s hoping he creates an encore documentary to compliment his incredibly haunting series.
