'Deep Water' DVD Review

This wonderful crime drama coming out of Australia is fantastic. A young man comes up dead near Bondi Beach. He is brutally murdered and Detectives Tori Lustigman (Yael Stone) and Nick Manning (Noah Taylor) are assigned the case. Most want this case closed quickly but Tori has recently returned to Bondi and wants to make a name for herself. There has been a history of crimes just like this murder that have gone unsolved going back to the 1980's. For a long time the local criminal element have controlled what goes on in Bondi and since this case is similar to all those unsolved it makes one wonder if these are criminals taking care of their own.

For Tori this murder brings back a nightmare of her own. Her brother was killed in a similar way back in 1989. The one constant in all the cases is that the victims were young gay men. Tori can't walk away and let this recent murder be classified as a simple suicide. She knows that all of these unsolved murders are tied together and she is going to solve this or die trying. Her partner Nick just wants to walk away from this murder but won't let his partner down.

This four part drama is hard to walk away from. The acting is quite good. Acorn brings this story to us on DVD on February 14th, 2017. The quality of the DVD is excellent and the sights and sounds are fantastic. This drama can be very enlightening in its approach to the subject of a gay serial killer.

There are still those in society who are uncomfortable with either gay men or women as the subject of a series but 'Deep Water' does a wonderful job with the subject of being gay.This series will make a wonderful addition to that personal library. A good old fashioned who done it is always perfect for a quiet night at home or a rainy Sunday afternoon. So take the time and pick the DVD up and find out if Tori is right to tie all these unsolved murders together.
