SCOTTSDALE, AZ - They are arguably Arizona's most notorious, brutal murders, and now you can see them on the big screen.
It’s the story of a father who police say killed his wife and kids, and blew up his Scottsdale home. The documentary "Where is Robert Fisher?" opened Friday night in theaters across the Valley.
"This is a very emotional story. I think you go to the movies these days and you get so disappointed [because] there is not enough emotion,” said the film’s director, Charlie Minn. “I think about that word every single day when I make my film; emotion. I want people crying in this film. This is a horrible, troubling, disgusting crime."
Minn definitely wants his audiences to feel that emotion. In just the first few opening minutes of his new film, "Where is Robert Fisher?", Minn lets his audience stare right into the face of death. The images are gripping to say the least.
"The movie business is a powerful medium,” Minn said. “You can provoke thought and conversation."
Minn’s movie is documentary based on the ongoing hunt for Fisher, and how police say he killed his wife and two children before destroying their home in Scottsdale in 2001.
"This thing needs to be talked about again. Any case after 10 years is going to fade just a little bit. You can't solve something if you don't talk about it," Minn said.
The movie is playing at a number of theaters throughout the area.
