Of Dolls And Murder

Of Dolls And Murder is the delightfully morbid, grisly, and fascinating documentary about The Nutshell Studies Of Unexplained Death, which are dollhouse crime dioramas created by heiress Frances Glessner Lee in the 1930s. These intricate 1:12 recreations of hideous murder scenes helped train future police detectives and revolutionized crime scene investigations. Not for the squeamish, there is footage of actual dead bodies in the film. Of Dolls And Murder is very well done, and features narration by cult film-maker and bad-ass John Waters. I watched Of Dolls And Murder on Netflix. Here's a trailer:
