I’ve been always quite fascinated with unsolved murders and why a person’s mentality caused them to become a certain way. Andrew Cunanan murdered 5 people, which included Gianni Versace as his last victim. The reasoning why he did so, caught my attention. No one understood Cunanan’s mind process, neither did I. That’s why the thought of it provokes me.
I’m not sure where I saw the advertisement, but when I saw that American Crime Story, Ryan Murphy, was making a show about Gianni Versace and his death, it immediately caught my attention. I waited for so long and it finally got released on Netflix later on. My boyfriend and I were making dinner one night and I asked if he wanted to watch Netflix during dinner. When Netflix was opened on my computer, the first thing I saw was “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” and I instantly got excited.
My boyfriend and I both agreed that Ryan Murphy did an amazing job on making this series. The cast, the story line, the acting—was on point. Since, I, myself, am a very visual person, reading articles on why Andrew Cunanan behaved in a certain way, and why he did what he did, was very confusing to me. Ryan Murphy had a visual representation of what happened, not by chronological order—which may seem very confusing at first, but after the second episode (Manhunt), things will start to explain itself a lot more.
Why did Andrew Cunanan do the things he’s ever done? No one will ever know the brain of a compulsive liar. What are your thoughts after watching the show?
