Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes [UPDATED]
Ted Bundy was the literal devil. The crimes he committed are so henious and disturbing, that should go without saying. What a fucking monster. He was also so annoying and arrogant. He thought he was soooooooo damn smart and cool. All the bullshit he spewed on the tapes pissed me off so much. I hope Carole Boone feels like a stupid dumbass idiot today. Thank god he was found guilty, imagine how annoying that would be if he had gotten away with it. Continue burning in hell Ted Bundy :)
Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes
This show has one season with four episodes. It starts off with a journalist named Stephan Michaud. He had gotten Ted Bundy to openly tell his story in third person. Bundy made an announcement that he was looking for a journalist to help him tell his side of the story. Michaud took this opportunity right away. There are about 75-80 tapes and about 100 hours of conversations.
"Bundy himself said, you'll hear it in the tapes, that killers don't come out of the shadows with long fangs dripping in blood. That means they're not easily identifiable. We want to think serial killers are easy to identify, and then we can avoid them, but the truth is the opposite, particularly with Bundy. He defied all expectations of what a serial killer is."
The tapes aside, Conversations With a Killer settles for a pretty traditional, straightforward approach to Bundy's life. These four episodes cover the entire arc of his story, ranging from his seemingly innocuous childhood to his multiple killing sprees to the media circus that was his trial and eventual execution. Director Joe Berlinger (who is also behind the upcoming Ted Bundy movie starring Zac Efron) mixes talking head interviews with archival footage and collages of still images. Michaud and Aynesworth both participate, along with various law enforcement officials and friends of Bundy. This straightforward approach gets the point across and offers a reasonably comprehensive account of Bundy's life for the uninitiated, but again, beyond those tapes there's not much to distinguish this documentary from those that have come before. 041b061a72
