  • It wasn't a film about the identity of DB Cooper, but about the power of myth, the unreliability of memory and our desperation to believe in something.

    December 31, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • HBO's treatment of the evergreen saga remains fresh, fun, and all-consuming.

    December 31, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Dower succumbs to some of the more annoying trappings of such informational documentaries, but overall this is compelling.

    December 30, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A wild tale, full of eccentric characters...

    December 16, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • Writer/director John Dower's documentary is simply content to revel in the unknowability of its story. To that end, it's a tantalizing look at a case that stymies conclusions at every turn.

    December 3, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It's fascinating and a lot of fun, but in a larger sense it speaks to the reason why people get fascinated with a story like this.
