Netflix fans have hailed new ‘absolutely wild’ crime documentary as the closest thing to Tiger King.
Last Stop Larrimah, released on Netflix on Friday, is an Australian-based American crime documentary film by Thomas Tancred.
It follows the 2017 disappearance of a resident in real-life town Larrimah, located in Northern Territory, Australia.
With the population of the town being just 47 at the time, Paddy Moriarty’s disappearance meant that every other resident became a suspect.
The documentary was originally released on max.com, by HBO, on 20th October.
