One of the things that makes me distinctly uncomfortable about true crime documentaries is that they often feel exploitative in a ‘let’s laugh at the weirdos’ kind of way. And it seems like a new Netflix doc, Last Stop Larrimah, could be in danger of falling into that trap. 

The documentary, which Decider calls “a character study of, and love letter to, Australians who live on the fringe” is causing much amusement on social media and the crime at the centre of the show, the disappearance of a 70-year-old man and his dog in 2017, appears to be coming second place to comedy.
