Wormwood Review

With Wormwood, documentary filmmaker Errol Morris creates his boldest, most thought provoking film yet. A delirious, haunting blend of talking-head documentary and narrative reenactment; a true crime saga that doubles as a government conspiracy polemic.

While The Sessions earned film festival staple John Hawkes a lot of critical acclaim last year, another of his indie performances flew mostly under the radar. In Julia Dyer‘s The Sessions, he and his former Deadwood co-star Molly Parker play a dysfunctional couple in ’70s suburbia. The pair are in the habit of inviting the neighbors over for grown-up get-togethers that get more sexually charged the more freely the booze flows.

But the film isn’t really about them so much as it is their four children, tucked away in the attic for the evening. Newcomer Olivia Harris plays the responsible oldest sibling, who’s old enough to be disappointed in her parents’ decisions but not quite ready to forge her own path into adulthood. Watch the trailer after the jump.
