Capturing the Killer Nurse is shot in a typical true-crime documentary style, complete with talking heads, dramatic reenactments, and creepy-tense music to set the mood. But unlike many true crime documentaries, this one has a story that rivals great fiction whodunnits. Most remarkable is the effort made by a fellow nurse and friend who managed to get past her feelings of protectiveness of the killer to help the police catch him. The movie, and the book it's based on, indict the hospital administrations. One hospital risk-management executive hid and lied about evidence. A CEO is heard telling outright lies, claiming his people investigated Cullen thoroughly when they didn't. Only the nurse went to jail.

Did we miss something on diversity?
