HBOs new Aussie true crime doc has 92 on Rotten

One of the things that makes me distinctly uncomfortable with true crime documentaries is that they often feel exploitative in a “let’s laugh at the crazies” kind of way. And it looks like a new Netflix document, Last stop Larrimahcould be in danger of falling into that trap.

The documentary, that one Decision maker Called ‘a character study of and love letter to Australians living on the margins’, it is providing much entertainment on social media and the crime at the heart of the show, the 2017 disappearance of a 70-year-old man and his dog is similar to the second make room for comedy.
