suffers from an overly cluttered narrative and too-hyperkinetic style.

Antonio Negret employs too many characters, backstories and plot tangents to address a subject that's unwieldy enough already

[Director] Negret is clearly less interested in imagining a fictional romance than in conveying his vision of a land that has lost its way.

Colombian-born writer-director Antonio Negret's kidnapping thriller tackles the same subject matter as Hollywood's big-budget, star driven Proof of Life. But it's a grittier and more viscerally affecting film.

That someone is kidnapped in Colombia every three hours is a startling statistic that offers many cinematic possibilities. But Towards Darkness fails to use any of them to advantage.

A convoluted bilingual thriller about a kidnapping in Colombia, Towards Darkness may be too clever for its own good.
