So there is this true crime documentary about finding the truth about who drew 27 phalluses in spray paint on 27 teacher cars on March 15, 2016. A sophomore film maker sets out to make a statement piece about how the school board railroaded Dylan Maxwell into an expulsion with little to no evidence. The series evolves into a multi-layered tale of high school intrigue, conspiracy, and judging books by their covers.

It's a satire piece playing on the true crime tv show tropes, but it is a master class on a satire documentary that solidly keeps itself away from the typical mockumentary flavor.

Check it out on Netflix. It's about a 5 hour series.

5/5 for me.
