Abducted In Plain Sight Netflix documentary Abducted In Plain Sight has about just as many twists and turns as The Act. Similar to the way Dee Dee misled Gypsy about her health, there's a level of brainwashing in this true story that is both insane and infuriating.

The Jinx: The Life And Deaths Of Robert Durst Art often imitates life (case in point: The Act, duh!), but sometimes, life imitates art after it's already imitated life. Confused? Don't be. Here's the sitch: In 2010, director Andrew Jarecki made the crime drama film All Good Things, based on the true story of Robert Durst, who is accused of killing three people but has yet to be convicted of any charges. While doing research for All Good Things, Jarecki was able to get so close with Durst that he later directed a six-part docuseries for HBO, featuring an unprecedented interview with Durst himself.
