The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst (2015)
Hot mic incidents are typically reserved for political candidates and newscasters, producing some embarrassing moments and miles of YouTube entertainment. But a murder admission? Robert Durst is an eccentric real estate scion who is believed to have been connected to the 1982 disappearance of his wife, the execution-style killing of writer Susan Berman in 2000, and the death and mutilation of Durst’s Texas neighbor, Morris Black. After hours of interviews with filmmakers Andrew Jarecki, Marc Smerling, and Zachary Stuart-Pontie, Durst admits to the crimes in an off-camera, hot-mic moment. He was arrested for first-degree murder the night before the moment aired on HBO.
