If you are like me and love a good Netflix documentary that leaves you still trying to piece everything together, then This Is A Robbery: The World's Biggest Art Heist is the newest series you should be watching this week.

A docuseries that runs over 4 episodes, each averaging over 50 minutes, leads to an easy binge especially since the whole bizarre case pulls you in.

Dive into the biggest art heist in history, a case that has been unsolved for over 30 years and still leaves people scratching their heads wondering "how did they pull it off without anyone noticing?", "who was behind it?" and "where are the paintings now?"

The series is produced brilliantly in a way that it gives the right amount of detail to art history but not overbearingly so, as well as diving into some of the criminal activity of Boston mobs at the time. This specifically was very interesting to get a small glimpse at the criminally sometimes disturbing activities that was uncovered around the time of the heist.

This series does a great job at mixing interviews old and new with a number of different people, ranging from the museum staff, infamous art thieves, police and suspects. This really gives a well rounded look into each corner of this case.There is also some slight reenactment but don't worry, it's done in the perfect way that it still feels like a documentary and not a short film.

The series is paced well and genuinely holds your attention throughout and definitely leads you to making up your own theories on what happened in Boston on the 17th March 1990 and the years following.

Masterpieces, value of millions of dollars, collateral, theft, accomplice theories, ties to different mobs, cover ups, murders and suspicious deaths all surround what happened in the Isabella Gardner museum that night and the years following and it will surely leave your head spinning trying to figure it all out.

We definitely recommend watching this docuseries. Look for our more detailed review on Wednesday. All 4 episodes are available on Netflix the 7th of April.
