We’ve arrived at episode 65! From true crime podcast “RedHanded” podcast Hannah and Suruthi join us for Hannah’s choice, the Kitty Green documentary/audition reel “Casting JonBenét”.

Fun fact – the murder of JonBenét was responsible for the creation of RedHanded – yet to be covered in their podcast but you can hear their verdict on this episode!

It’s important to note this is not a documentary and it doesn’t shed any new light or offer and closure to one of the most famous and fascinating unsolved crimes.

So what is it? It is a short of extended audition reel and imagined reenactment of what happened on the night of 26 December 1996. The end result is a collection of weirdos aiming for their five minutes of fame and beautiful cinematography – with creepy potentially pedophile Santa.

If you’re looking for answers there is a two-part CBS documentary that can satisfy that if you’re looking for a insight into small town Americana and dark humour this is your biscuit.

Scores

Casting JonBenét is obviously going to lose points on repeat viewing – but scores generally well on recommendability and scores overall 3.57 – strong for a documentary film!
