It’s Episode 91! Joining us to review the 2017 documentary Out of Thin Air are returning guests Taylor (her choice) and Hannah from Drunk Women Solving Crime.

Out of Thin Air mixes interviews and dramatisation to investigate the mystery surrounding the disappearances of Guðmundur Einarsson and Geirfinnur Einarsson in 1974 in Iceland and the subsequent arrests and imprisonments of six suspects, at which point things are definitely not what they seem.

The story itself the perfect true crime stuff, two people disappear and to this day have never been found. The suspects are arrested, some of them have shady backgrounds and (despite little evidence) are convicted and then the twist, in 2013 a report brought forward the motion to retrial the suspects.

This documentary, however, fails to really capture the mystery and intrigue and it ends up being a bit confusing and at worst, quite boring. True crime fans will probably enjoy this as would anyone who remembers the case but as a piece of documentary cinema, it doesn’t deliver the goods.
