Overall Thoughts

Netflix’s I Just Killed My Dad is based on a true crime event, with such bizzarre details surrounding the case, it comes as no surprise a documentary was made about it. The docuseries is composed of three episodes, with each episode running around 45 minutes long, and it reveals the fascinating, yet dark, details of how the events unfolded. While the series details the events and physical and emotional abuse endured by the victims in the story, it also touches on our current justice system and how easily child custody and domestic abuse cases fall through the cracks.

I Just Killed My Dad cleverly uses well-crafted aesthetics to fit those interviewed, setting the stage for the victims and perpetrators in the case. This draws the viewers in to connect with those involved, evoking sympathy for some and anger for the misdeeds that other figures in the story had to face. Considering the events, and the fact that the person on trial is a minor, this seems like an interesting direction to take in the retelling of the story. Without giving away details, it is almost as if the makers of the documentary are pushing audiences to pick a side early on. But as the series unfolds, it slowly adds more evidence that takes things in a new direction, which will have you questioning what you thought you knew and with whom your favoritism lies. It will suck you in and have you glued to the screen. Before you know it, those 3 episodes will be binged in no time flat. Netflix may be on to something with all of these true story documentaries, as there is no need to find a script or actors, and the real stories always end up more bizzare and outlandish anyway.
