Utter disgusting waste of 1h20m .. Director Kitty Green should be ashamed..

Oh TOTAL BARF - total atrocious, monstrous failure. Rated Netflix's "let's phone it in," "Casting JonBenét (2017)" jusssssst barrrrrrrrely 1of5stars. Big thumbs down! This so-called "documentary" is the poster-child - no pun - for profiting off (exploiting) a crime story, whilst having imputed the least effort and budget. If you're a True Crime fan do yourself a favor and skip this pièce de shiite totale. Addresses maybe 15-20 facts of the case at most. The rest is drivel: Merely E- (not B rated..) rated "actors" auditioning for roles such as Patsy, John, confessor John Carr, Santa, Police Chief, brother Burke etc, and off-camera each gives their elaborate, mundane and wacky life stories which no one cares about, and professes their opinions and wild theories on the case. Tons of useless filler, eg. A JonBenet actress in full beauty pageant regalia dancing around her hallway at home, some Burke 10yo tryout kids being interviewed about their background and acting experience and then are shown striking small watermelons with a flashlight. I truly dearly hope (1) by watching this I didn't make more money for the producers and, (2) that the auditions led to an actual fictionalized biopic film but I sadly seriously doubt it! Waste of 1h20m. Kitty Green you should be ashamed. (fat money sack emoji here).
