Hell hath no fury like a Facebook cat group. The latest Netflix crime documentary has just arrived and follows a Facebook group in their efforts to find deranged criminal Luca Magnotta that sparks an international manhunt and leads our amateur sleuths deep into the dark web.
This documentary is engaging from start to finish, thanks to a great cinematography style that makes it feel as if you are a part of the investigation, with numerous video clips and photos from the actual hunt, along with interviews with group members and police who were working the case. With more twists than a cheese twist factory, you will have no idea what’s going to happen next. It leaves you on edge and experiencing a plethora of emotions, disgust likely at the forefront.
Netflix has definitely given us no shortage of great crime shows and documentaries with things like Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes and Making a Murder, and this is no exception to that trend. So, if your watch list looks like a maximum security death row, I highly recommend giving this show a watch, especially with it only being 3 episodes, 1 hour each, so not too much of a time commitment
Rather than raising the criminal up on a pedestal like has been done many times before, the show highlights how much of a monster he truly is
While there is obvious entertainment value, for you sadists out there, the documentary also makes sure to take the time to address the repercussions of Luca Magnotta’s actions on all parties involved. Rather than raising the criminal up on a pedestal like has been done many times before, the show highlights how much of a monster he truly is and even reprimands us, the viewer, for taking the time to give him the attention and watch this show.
Don’t F**k with Cats is not retaliation for bad reviews from the (equally terrifying) 2019 flop Cats (2019) but rather one of the best crime documentaries you can watch right now, giving a great look at an aspect of criminal investigation not looked at enough; the internet. I wholeheartedly recommend giving it a watch and then maybe a few cat videos too.
