The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst

Absolutely top shelf HBO investigative documentary on Robert Durst, scion of one of New York’s billionaire real estate families - accused of three murders but never convicted.

Brilliant, reclusive, and the subject of relentless media scrutiny, Durst had never spoken publicly until these interviews with filmmaker Andrew Jarecki, he reveals secrets of the case that baffled authorities for 30 years. In 2010, Jarecki made the narrative film All Good Things based on the infamous story of Robert Durst. After Durst saw the film, he contacted Jarecki wanting to tell his story. What began as a feature documentary ultimately became this six-part series as more and more of this stranger-than-fiction story was revealed.
