'I Just Killed My Dad' is Netflix's latest true-crime series not to watch with the whole family

Como títulos para no ver con los niños van, “acabo de matar a mi papa” tiene que ocupar un lugar bastante alto en la lista. Yet there are enough twists in Netflix’s latest true-crime docuseries to keep audiences engaged, with another sensational case that’s more of a whydunitgiven the killer’s immediate confessionthan who.

The phrase in the title was uttered in 2019 by then-17-year-old Anthony Templet, who had just shot his father in their home in Baton Rouge, Luisiana.
Over three episodes, director Skye Borgman (also responsible for Netflix’sGirl In The Picture”) teases out the events that preceded those actions, including allegations of abuse and child abduction, as well as the decision by Anthony’s father, Burt, to home school him and demand that he know the boy’s whereabouts at all times.
    “acabo de matar a mi papa” thus gradually peels back layers on this sordid saga — “sordidbeing the operative word for almost everything that Netflix does in the true-crime space, including its recent entries The Most Hated Man on the Internet y Our Father.
      What makes it all vaguely chilling is Anthony’s numb, unemotional responseseemingly convinced he hasn’t done anything wrongand his overall manner, which indicates that not all has been right within the home.
        After the initial flurry of twists, the tale does bog down in the middle, giving way to Anthony’s lawyer and the prosecutor in the case trying to find a path that feels like justice given all the extenuating circumstances. As the latter notes, there’s understandable concern about appearing to sanction murder, and how letting the boy go might be perceived. (The case was resolved in 2021, but not knowing how adds to the viewing experience.)
        Francamente, “acabo de matar a mi papa” seems to exist largely because of that attention-getting title, which weds old-fashioned exploitation movies with the fare normally found on channels like Investigation Discovery.
          Netflix has gone a bit overboard with these kind of docuseries in terms of sheer volume, but to be fair, so has everyone else. es más, these projects reliably light up social media for a lot less money than going out and hiring an all-star cast.
            While something like “acabo de matar a mi papa” might not be the kind of material that’s fun for the whole family, it’s the sort of formula that usually ensures a trip right to the top of the service’s most-watched tier.
            “acabo de matar a mi papa” premieres Aug. 9 on Netflix.
