"Manhunt" is dense with information and revelations, and Barker interweaves his archival footage, Philip Sheppard's moody music and contrasting lighting to keep the film's sensibility nimble and shifting.
Gripping procedural only can benefit from controversy over Zero Dark Thirty.
A frustrating viewing experience. The success of the superb book upon which it's based -- distilling the essence of disparate strands, and connecting them -- proves too difficult a lift for director Greg Barker.
It's telling that some of this documentary's most compelling segments are made up of pre-existing footage.
