The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst

HBO 2015

A groundbreaking six-part documentary directed and produced by Andrew Jarecki and produced and shot by Marc Smerling (the Oscar nominees behind "Capturing the Friedmans") delves into the strange history of real estate heir Robert Durst, long suspected in the still-unsolved 1982 disappearance of his wife as well as the subsequent murders of family friend Susan Berman and neighbor Morris Black. It features an extended, revealing interview with Durst himself, with whom Jarecki developed a unique relationship following the release of "All Good Things," Jarecki's 2010 feature about Durst's life starring Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst. "The Jinx" results from nearly a decade of research by the filmmakers, who expose police files, key witnesses, never-before-seen footage, private prison recordings, and thousands of pages of hidden documents

    I knew NOTHING about this events whatsoever. A friend just told me "watch it, don't google it". What a documentary: my completely ignorance on the matter was very important for me, I was on the edge of my seat for the last 3 episodes. This shit is INCREDIBILE. Hands down, the most amazing documentary I've seen in my life.


    Even though the ending kind of got spoiled for me by the news (so not really a spoiler, just life stuff) this might be the best documentary I have ever seen.


    What an amazing story!! I am european, an I didn't know anything of Robert Durst, but is a MUST SEE!


    This show was recommended to me by someone at work. Really enjoyed all 6 episodes, watched them all one after another this morning. I'm from the UK so didn't know anything before I watched. I'm pleased I didn't google his name or the show. I recommend you watch them all first then Google.


    The best documentary I've seen in my life.


    This is one hell of a ride, from start to finish. Do yourself a favour and have a watch. It truely is stranger than fiction how it all plays out. [spoiler] I watched this as a marathon in bed getting over an illness. As I was still reeling from the events of the fourth episode in Texas (how those jurors justified their verdict I will never understand), soon enough the end came along and delivered the knockout blow. [/spoiler] This is a great doco, one that I will recommend to anyone that will listen.


    Very good document! I went into this blind knowing nothing of the case or events that transpired. It was a very well put together documentary and a must watch. Also, on a side note, holy moly Robert Durst eyes reak of just pure evil because of how black they look.


    The coldest whiteman of all-time.


    Great docuseries! They totally can make more since he's now in prison and on trial for the murder of Susan.


    Amazing documentary, I'm from south america so I didn't know anything about Durst prior watching this, it was a fascinating experience. The last two episodes keep me on the edge of my seat.
