"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.
One of the central pleasures of genre cinema is running your fingers along well-worn grooves, but while Man Hunt trots out a lot of chestnuts, it's the film's tendency to burn through them with bemusing haste.
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.
