‘The Jinx’: This weekend on HBO

Should you be needing something to watch Sunday night (wait, isn’t “The Good Wife” back yet? I miss Alan Cumming), or thereafter, a potentially fascinating true-crime documentary debuts that night on HBO. It’s “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst,” directed by Robert Jarecki, who made the haunting Oscar-nominated doc “Capturing the Friedmans” about a decade ago. This time, he’s revisiting familiar territory: Jarecki made a feature film in 2010 called “All Good Things,” based on the true story of New York socialite Robert Durst, a free man today despite the fact that he may have murdered at least three people — including, perhaps, his wife Kathie, who disappeared without a trace in the 1980s. In my review at the time, I noted that the movie wasn’t as fascinating as the story that inspired it — and now, here’s that story, screening in six parts on HBO beginning Sunday at 8 p.m. Early buzz is that, yes, “The Jinx” is far better than “All Good Things”; I’ll surely be watching.
