“The New York Times” labels “The Staircase” as “Brilliant” While “EW” Calls it “Art”

When Micheal Peterson was arrested for murdering his wife Kathleen in their North Carolina mansion, it made front-page news. For this gripping docu-series, Academy Award-winning Jean-Xavier de Lestrade was given unrestricted access as he followed the case from the first few days after Kathleen’s death to an unbelievable conclusion in court. Check out what the critics had to say about THE STAIRCASE:

The New York Times says THE STAIRCASE is “so brilliantly conceived, reported, filmed and paced that you may come to wish it were twice as long.”

A.V. Club raves this series is “unforgettable,” saying it’s “a moving, intimate look at a tight-knit clan pulling together in a time of crisis.”

Movie Metropolis says, “more surprise twists and turns than anything M. Night Shyamalan has ever imagined.”

Entertainment Weekly‘s Ken Tucker calls the series, “a piece of art that wrests the beauty and agony of life from mundane, cynical, tawdry reality.”
