There are a couple of moments in Murder on Middle Beach, HBO’s newest true crime docu-series, the place you would possibly end up masking your eyes or preventing the urge to crawl out of your pores and skin. And it is not due to the violence or grotesque photographs. The filmmaker simply has a really intimate and intense relationship together with his interview topics.

Madison Hamburg was simply 18 years previous when his mom, Barbara Hamburg, was murdered outdoors of their Madison, Conn. dwelling in in 2010. Greater than a decade later, the crime stays unsolved. However Madison has by no means stopped trying to find solutions—even when it meant asking his members of the family uncomfortable questions, like, “Did you homicide my mother?”

You understand, only for instance. 

What began off as a school undertaking at Savannah Faculty of Artwork finally turned Homicide on Center Seashore, the gripping four-part docuseries that involves a conclusion on Dec. 6. Madison has spent greater than eight years engaged on the documentary that, actually, is not a real crime collection in any respect.
