No Time To Binge? This Gripping 40-Minute Netflix Documentary Is Just What You Need Tonight

James Fenton

Amid the hustle and bustle of the working week, it can be difficult to find time in the evenings to dedicate ourselves to a full-on Netflix binge.

Thankfully, there are enough one-off specials on the streaming service that are perfect for that quick break between finishing dinner and doing the washing up.

One such example is Long Shot, a fascinating documentary about a chance encounter which ended up having massive implications on the life of Juan Catalan, a Los Angeles man who was accused of murdering a 16-year-old girl in 2003.

Long story short, when Juan found out that hit HBO comedy series Curb Your Enthusiasm was filming at the same location as him at the time of the murder, he knew he had the perfect alibi.

Larry David, the creator and star of Curb, provides the comic relief by giving his side of the gripping tale and fans of the show will note that aspects of the documentary could have appeared in a script for Curb Your Enthusiasm itself.

Released in 2017, take a look at the trailer for Long Shot below and check it out for yourself tonight…
