The Staircase: Season 1 Reviews

June 18, 2018
If The Staircase is a puzzle, it's one that still works no matter how you decide to arrange the pieces.

The Staircase is less like other true crime documentaries and more like the Richard Linklater film Boyhood, although much sadder and involving real people.

The Staircase is like a true-crime version of the Up series, albeit on a much more modest scale. It is compelling, but like many entries in this genre, not exactly an objective work of journalism.

This three-tiered telling of "The Staircase" -- which builds, step by methodical step, on what transpired before -- is an extremely shrewd demonstration of getting maximum bang for its bucks.

Should the outcome go one way or the other at any point in the game, one wouldn't necessarily be surprised. Engrossed, yes. And hungry for more.

The level of detail is astonishing -- not a scintilla of the storyline is tossed aside. It's a terrific, troubling case to fall into and a sublime summer distraction in the true-crime genre.

It's a must-watch for anyone interested in true crime shows as it's not only a fascinating case on its own but really the template for so much that's on television and streaming services today.
