Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1):

Unique among its true crime peers, David Holthouse's investigation into a Northern California bigfoot myth feels similar to other genre-bending documentaries like Catfish and Nathan for You's "Finding Frances." Like those touchstones, Sasquatch begins with a simple investigation but quickly becomes about something bigger and thornier than the investigators could have imagined. Holthouse's journey careens from legendary creatures into crime, drugs, race, history, and trauma before finally asking what drives people to want to solve mysteries in the first place. It's an unexpected treat.
