No One Saw a Thing

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Sundance TV

On July 10, 1981, 60 residents of Skidmore, Mo., surrounded the pickup truck of local bully Ken Rex McElroy and shot him to death. When law enforcement attempted to investigate, every potential witness transformed into a co-conspirator as Skidmore shuddered its doors to the outside world and nobody claimed to see anything.

Sundance TV’s new true-crime docuseries No One Saw a Thing is essentially a Southern Gothic Big Little Lies times 10: The story of Skidmore, the town that got away with murder, is the story of the corrosive damage that terrible secrets can inflict upon a community. The town is so wrought with suffering that tragedy befalls its residents almost cyclically. Violence has seeped so deep into the soil that life can’t grow anymore — literally. The town’s population has dropped by half since the 1980s.

Violence begets violence, and the secret kept by one generation has poisoned the next. That is the thesis of No One Saw a Thing, and it’s compelling, yet it’s also one the show doesn’t do a clear job of supporting. Pain invades Skidmore just as much from without as within, and the town’s residents claim they’ve made peace with their secret. It’s an easy case to make that Skidmore is plagued by karmic turmoil for its secrets, but as a reason for the town’s long-lasting suffering, karma lacks a certain tangibility. I remain unconvinced, though to No One’s credit, I’m still wrestling with the ideas it presents. B- —Daniel Menegaz
