Filmmaker Joe Berlinger Goes in the Dark Mind of Ted Bundy
Award-winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger (Brother's Keeper, The Paradise Lost trilogy) reexamines America's most notorious serial killer on the 30th anniversary of his execution in his new Netflix documentary Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes. Â He discusses how one of Bundyâ€™s first jobs gave him an inside view of the flaws in Americaâ€™s law enforcement system, how Bundy exploited those weaknesses to his own devilish advantage, and how it led to dramatic changes in how the FBI hunts serial killersÂ and how state and local police share information. Â We talk about how Ted Bundyâ€™s clean cut good looks helped him elude capture,Â and the movie heart-throb who Joe Berlinger cast as Bundy in his new feature filmÂ Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. Â We talk about the media circus that turned Ted Bundy into a household name,Â the influence that the Bundy trial had on the true crime genre,Â and why Berlinger,Â known as the father of the true crime documentary,Â doesnâ€™t actually like the term "true crime." Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy TapesÂ is available on Netflix beginning January 24 and look for Joe's feature film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile at the Sundance Film Festival this weekend and in theatres soon. Â Keep up with Joe at www.joeberlinger.com or on Twitter at @JoeBerlinger.

Is True Crime Jinxed?
Whether Robert Durst confessed on camera will become a relevant legal matterÂ in the real estate figure's upcoming trial. The supposed confession â€” "What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course." â€” at the end of HBO's The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst has recently been revealed to have been seriously, deceptively edited. In 2015 Bob spoke with documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger, co-creater of the Paradise Lost trilogy, about modern filmmaker, the responsibility of the artist and different interpretations of "truth." It's a relevant conversation to revisit, this week in particular. Â
