Just listen to Casefile: Case 50

Overall i enjoyed the documentary just expected a bit more.

I wondered why so many details were left out. Although I truly appreciated the actual footage and commentary I was surprised they chose to exclude some of the more interesting tidbits about the case

I had preciously listened to the 2 hour and 49 minute long Casefile (Episode 50) from 2017 podcast about this years ago and wish they would have included more into this documentary. Casefiles version was so good.

I also recently watched the JCS: Criminal Psychology episode (Jennifer's Solution). It was good also.

I would definitely recommend watching and listening to both of those to get your true crime fix.

JCS Criminal Psychology did it better

If you ask me, I think JCS did much better in composing this case and presenting it through the lense of criminal psychology.

It highlights the most important aspects of the case - all condensed into what Jennifer really thought the solution was. Also, with the bonus of not including the dramatic music in the background that Netflix features in every single crime doco.

I honestly thought watching the case again, this time around on Netflix, I might learn something more. However, after seeing it, Netflix doesn't measure up the slightest to what JCS presented.

For those curious, it's called Jennifer's Solution on YT.

Watch the JCS video instead

Astounding how a large studio with a substantial budget, can't do it better than one guy making YouTube videos. Look up the JCS video on youtube. It's around the same length but goes into this from the criminal psychology angle and absolutely nails it. Netflix tried too hard (as they often do) to ramp up the drama and cinematography and in turn essentially fall flat when it comes to actually giving you what you want from a story like this.

The story of this horrific murder is organically dramatic enough that the erie music is completely unnecessary and takes a lot away from the organic darkness of this case.

Essentially, it's too long for how much it leaves to assumption and too dramatic for how much it takes away from the incident.

Watch the JCS video instead.
