TLDR

Lot of upbeat music. Lot of guns.

What it's about

Inspired by the real life murder of Mexican TV host Paco Stanley, this dramatized series offers the perspective of six prime suspects.

The take

The show has an easy to follow format with the curated version of events, especially with the premise always guiding the experience. The sudden changes in footage quality and music both service the atmosphere by turning the mundane uncomfortable and chilling (though I am generally ambivalent to films with a lot of gimmicks). Still, the show seems more interesting as a whole than in its tiny details. It’s effective at high tension developments and confrontations, utilizing the drama from various power dynamics, but it’s also passable in other regards. In the grand scheme of things, it can be a tedious, overwhelming watch.

What stands out

The scenes with Paco are very vibrant.
