Critics Of "Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes - Season 1"
January 27, 2019
Conversations with a Killer seems neither interested in mining Ted Bundy's life for pulp thrills, nor seeking any sort of emotional catharsis for his victims and their families. It plays simply like reading a Wikipedia page - scored to electronic music.
Director Joe Berlinger brings new facts to light here including new details, expert witness interviews with people speaking out for the first time and 100 hours of Bundy's death row audio tape interviews with reporter Stephen G. Michaud.
Conversations With a Killer, though, is far from a passionate crusade against capital punishment; featuring hours of Bundy's unimaginable crimes, the movie makes death seem like the only fitting option.
