The Invisible Pilot, a three-part documentary series by Emmy-winning filmmakers Phil Lott and Ari Mark, is a tale of a charismatic, daredevil husband and father who unexpectedly jumped off a bridge in 1977, despite a seemingly happy home life and a lucrative career as a pilot. His small-town Arkansas community searches for his body in vain while family and friends seek answers. Years later, a mysterious story emerges involving hypnosis, secret identities, and a double life of dangerous missions and law-breaking.  And that’s just the beginning.

From Adam McKay (HBO’s Winning TimeSuccession and Q: Into The Storm) comes to a labyrinthine story that begins in Hazen, Arkansas, and ends up as part of one of the biggest political scandals of our time.

Heather’s Review:

I’m not sure I ever gasped as much during one documentary as I did while watching this one. Talk about a shocking story. I’m not sure what I expected, although I know it wasn’t what it turned out to be. I loved so much about The Invisible Pilot. It was beautifully put together. I didn’t even lose interest when they started talking about politics (which is unusual for me). This is a story you need to watch.

I give The Invisible Pilot on HBO Max 4.5 out of 5 stars.
