(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)
The Series: This is a Robbery
Where You Can Stream It: Netflix
The Pitch: A docuseries that covers the still-unsolved 1990 robbery of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston.
Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: There are a lot of true crime docuseries around these days, especially on Netflix. And This Is a Robbery doesn’t exactly break the mold. Indeed, it has many of the problems that plague so many other modern true crime docuseries. And yet, the subject matter is so fascinating that you’ll likely be willing to overlook some flaws.
