News & Interviews for Murder in the Bayou: Season 1
Murder in the Bayou might be set up for guilty pleasure viewing except for the effort it puts into establishing the context of the community and the crimes and the empathy behind the camera.
Has strong echoes of the Southern Gothic genre in filmed drama... That's partly about the visual language (the series looks amazing), but chiefly it's because of the enormous gap between the wealthy and the dirt poor.
Director Matthew Galkin and journalist Ethan Brown compile riveting interviews with those around the murders to paint an ever more disturbing picture.
Audience Reviews for Murder in the Bayou: Season 1
Jan 12, 2021This doc very thoroughly looks at how drugs, inequality, and unaccountable cops intersect with the murder of eight young women in a small city in Louisiana. If you are hoping for resolution about the murders it explores, you wont find it. There is a lot of detective work and theories, but in the end I just started to find all the theories frustrating, because that is all they are: theories without much evidence. Many of the people interviewed have drug and legal problems so it's hard to know who and what is reliable. If you want a thorough look at the politics and culture of a small southern town in the U.S., you'll be happy; if you want a solved murder, you wont be.
Aug 16, 2020Must watch. The magnitude of the series is underrated. This documentary series goes over the murder of 8 females and 1 male. It highlights- corruption, inequality, law enforcement, pedophile, murder, addiction, family, women's rights, trauma and much more. Guillory should not still be in law enforcement.
Jun 05, 2020This was an absolute challenge to watch. Slow, boring, Mundane. It took me over a week and I had to replay episodes because I kept falling asleep. The viewer has no connection with the women that were murdered. They didn't tell anyone's story here. Skip it!!
Feb 05, 2020amazing. really well done and beautifully shot.
Oct 17, 2019Truly one of the best documentaries I have seen in years. Filmmakers do an amazing job at focusing on the families and lives of the victims while explaining the many different theories as to how such a sad situation is possible in this country. A devastating must watch.
Sep 27, 2019Yet again, if you want to have justice you've got to have the money buy. Excellent documentary and truly moving.
Sep 20, 2019Well done, tragic case.
