News & Interviews for Captive: Season 1
Compelling true crime series chronicles real kidnappings.
The testimonials themselves are gripping, as they range from touching to frightening. In many cases, watching this series is to be a witness to the innocence of the well-meaning brushing up against the trauma of the brutalized, and it's not pretty.
If additional seasons of the series make their way to Netflix in the coming years, one hopes that Captive's creators will learn to better let these stories - of survival, struggle, human nature, and chilling circumstance - speak for themselves.
The third installment, "Lucasville," demonstrates how the series's focus on the here-and-now hobbles its attempt to tell a more resonant story.
This offshoot of the true-crime genre (Making a Murderer and so on) is another effective way to experience the worst moments in other people's lives from a safe distance.
