New Netflix Documentary Creeps Its Way Onto Your Screen And Under Your Skin

You won’t sleep for nights after watching this.

You won't sleep for nights after watching this.

There is an interesting and thought-provoking fresh feature on Netflix coming soon called, ‘Voyeur’. That title makes the mind wander to not so PG places. The wonder is worth the wait.

This story starts with 84-year-old journalist Gay Talese weaving the tale of Gerald Foos who owned his own motel in Colorado and inexplicably would spy on these guests through riggings in the ceiling. As it is explained in this clip:

For decades, Foos secretly watched his guests with the aid of specially designed ceiling vents, peering down from an “observation platform” he built in the motel’s attic.

He kept detailed journals of his guests’ most private moments — from the mundane to the shocking — but most of all he sought out, spied on, and documented one thing: strangers having sex.

Talese’s insatiable curiosity leads him to turn his gaze to a man accustomed to being the watcher, exploring a tangle of ethical questions: What does a journalist owe to his subjects? How can a reporter trust a source who has made a career of deception? Who is really the voyeur?

Unsettling or curious? This borderlines the part of the psyche that is has morbid interest in something so primal; but everyone has had an unexplained urge to look where they are not supposed to. Whether it is a child sneaking down the first few rungs of stairs to glimpse at a movie they aren’t allowed to watch, to those perverted specimens digging holes in the walls leading to locker rooms. The thrill is the unknown subject of obsession, of the viewing.

You can also watch some more eerie footage of a drone recorded from an abandoned mental hospital.
