Release Date: 2020
This HBO MAX miniseries is the best I have seen thus far on the company’s platform. The drama of an unsolved murder is unwoven by Madison Hamburg, but in a twist…the murder is of his own mother.
Taking place in a small Connecticut town, Madison takes the audience through untold secrets of his family and the deceptions once close confidants played on each other. While the murder is captivating on its own, the most magnetic part of Murder On Middle Beach is Madison’s family and his relationship with them. He has a pair of very opinionated aunts, and a father that pushes himself away from his own son with anything possible.
It is scary to discover new things about your family. Imagine doing so while trying to solve the murder of your mother.
- Murder On Middle Beach is four episodes long and with each and every episode it gets better. It is a genuine example of a young filmmaker in Madison Hamburg getting better at crafting his true story. He is intertwining the right moments at the right times come episode four, and the story concludes you are rooting for him.
- This mini-series made me thing of what type of pyramid scheme would suck me in.
- My take is that the father is 100% involved. If you have seen Murder On Middle Beach, let me know what you think.
STANKO RATING: B+ (4.0/5 Stars)
