The Staircase (2018) - Shreya Sachdev

The Staircase is a 2018 documentary about the murder of Kathleen Peterson, the wife of the novelist Michael Peterson. This unsolved case has been heavily debated by many people because there are arguments to suggest that Michael Peterson did kill his wife, but there are also theories to suggest that he didn’t. Michael Peterson, to this day, has not admitted to the murder, even though in my opinion it’s clear that he is the culprit. Unfortunately, The Staircase is quite a biased documentary and doesn’t take into account the full case. Furthermore, it’s difficult to stay interested in the documentary because all this documentary really is is a bunch of interviews of family and friends, without any real details on the case. Due to my interest in unsolved criminal cases, I was able to keep watching this show but I can understand why other people would be somewhat bored of it. i would give The Staircase a 7/10.
