When you think of true-crime documentaries, there's really only one place you're looking and that's Netflix.
The streamer may be going through some retention difficulties lately. However nothing can be said about its ability to create some of the best true-crime docs out there.
While the quality of each show varies pretty wildly (For ever 'Tinder Swindler' there's a 'Bad Vegan'), the sheer quantity will have you spoilt for choice. Every time we log onto Netflix there's usually a new documentary appearing on the screen or popping up in the 'Coming Soon' categories.
With that being said, let's have a look at some big true-crime docs that have released this year. Some of which might have fallen through the cracks and are all well worth a watch.
'Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story'
This two-part documentary follows the life and career of the once beloved media personality Jimmy Savile and the harrowing allegations of sexual abuse that followed his death in 2011.
Savile rose to fame as a radio DJ, then becoming a host of British institution 'Top of the Pops'. He subsequently went on to host his own show 'Jim'll Fix it' and was well known for his charity work. However, it was his charity work which gave him access to carry out his despicable actions that would eventually come to light and shock a nation and beyond.
Everybody knows of Savile's story, however this documentary highlights details very much worth watching. Brave victim testimony, ex-colleagues and reporters all add something new to the grim tale.
'Trainwreck: Woodstock 99'
The most recent addition to this list is this explosive three-part doc about the infamous events of Woodstock music festival in 1999. The series follows the festival day by day, which delved into chaos by the final day and went down in history as one of the biggest organised disasters in the music industry.
Featuring in the series are artists such as Fatboy Slim, Jonathan Davies of Korn and Gavin Rossdale of Bush. They all recall the incredible sequence of events that really have to be seen to be believed.
There are some genuinely shocking moments in this series that show the true extent of mob mentality and macho American culture in the 90's.
'The Most Hated Man on the Internet'
If you're in the mood to be enraged and disconsolate at the human race at the same time then this three-part documentary is definitely the one for you.
The series centres around Hunter Moore, dubbed "the most hated man on the internet" by Rolling Stone following his ascent to the throne of online revenge porn. The sociopathic now-convicted-criminal is not the main story of this show, however. That belongs to the incredibly brave Laws family, including Kayla, a victim of Miller's repulsive website, and her mother Charlotte.
The two refuse to give in to Miller and go on a warpath to get justice for Kayla and the many other victims of his crimes. It's a shocking watch from start to finish and a truly modern tale of Good vs Evil.
'Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey'
A lot of the shows on this list will give you a pretty bad taste in your mouth and this is absolutely included here.
With Mormonism well and truly under the microscope lately - go watch 'Under the Banner of Heaven' - this documentary stirs up a gripping investigation into a fundamentalist offshoot of the Church of the Latter Day Saints and its eccentric leader, Warren Jeffs.
The four-part docuseries interviews several ex-members and survivors of the cult, which promoted polygamy in the extreme, marital control and misogyny. All of this was orchestrated by the now-incarcerated leader Jeffs.
It's a classic cult-crime watch, with some really shocking revelations of a truly evil man and the power of faith.
'DB Cooper: Where are You?!'
Unsolved mysteries are always incredibly endearing, especially ones as spectacular in scope as the events involving D.B. Cooper.
The series looks at the 50-year quest to find the mysterious man who hijacked a Northwest Airlines passenger jet in November 1971 and escaped with $200,000, never to be seen again. Five decades. Few clues. Too many suspects. The identity of skyjacker D.B. Cooper remains one of the greatest mysteries of the 20th century.
With over 800 suspects brought to attention in the half a century since the event, we're still nowhere closer to knowing who this man was. This will leave you questioning how something like this was ever possible.
