    American Murder: The Family Next Door

    ★★★

    This seems to be the true crime story that was one everyone's lips when this came out. I came to this documentary after watching some True Crime YouTubers and Podcasters cover it.

    There's not really a ton here, if you don't know the case it breaks it down well enough, but it's a bit sterile for my taste. There is a "what in the ACTUAL FUCK" element to this case that you can't really get across in a traditional documentary.

    Alicia Vikander does justice to Lara, and most of the writing and plot issues stem from the source material. If you…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This will require a proper review at a later time, but I want to get a few thoughts down quickly.

    Holy shit did I love this show. "Dom loves Amy Adams" isn't really news to anyone who has heard me talk about movies, but Sharp Objects was something new. Camille resonated with me, but each character - at least the women - felt fully realized. Every little motion felt meaningful, every action intentional, right through the end. My biggest assessment…
