News & Interviews for Wormwood: Miniseries
It's a true-crime documentary with a terminal case of Netflix bloat; an investigation into a heavily reported subject that ultimately yields no new information.
A fascinating piece of filmmaking that challenges the form in new ways as it recalls themes its director has been interested in his entire career.
A hybrid blend of documentary and Cold War thriller that makes The B-Side, Morris's loving portrait of radical photographer Elsa Dorfman earlier this year, look almost straightforward.
But then Morris also includes recurring fictionalized sequences - not the generic reenactments we tend to find in average cable documentaries, but artful scripted pieces featuring well-known actors, led by Peter Sarsgaard as Frank Olson.
Their testimonies unfolds alongside a series of dramatic reenactments that may or may not illustrate the precise nature of the events being described. The result is a documentary-fiction combination like nothing seen before.
