As with the title card’s amorphous, black-and-white swirl, the overall effect is disorienting, with each scene offering mutable contours of a grand design, localized vortices of a dramatic flow, but never a fixed shape, only an impression of the elusive whole.

The most affecting moment in Wormwood occurs not during any of the historical reenactments—Peter Sarsgaard’s performance as Frank is only a notch or two above the kind of thing you might see on the History Channel—but at the end, when journalist Seymour Hersh is explaining to Morris that he can’t say on the record exactly what he now knows to be true about the case without burning his high-level source, but he still wants to offer Eric some closure.

If Morris had simply recounted the facts, even in a way that emphasized the real suffering of the victims, that would have shocked nobody. They are the stuff of every spy movie. . . . But unlike that genre, Wormwood . . . doesn’t produce dramatic tension by exploiting our desire to be in on the secret. It exposes us to the baser side of that desire: the narcissism, mean-spiritedness, and contempt that are so often the psychological realities of secrecy.

İnsanlar ne diyor?

  • MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Wormwood

    A terrific portrait of the Great American Monsters, way more terrifying that Freddy Krueger, Michael Myers, and Pennywise: Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney. The amount of damage that these two individuals have inflicted the world and their own citizens is paramount.

  • Jason's rating of the film Wormwood

    Though my memory is a blighted thing, I don't feel there is any risk of misrepresentation in saying that WORMWOOD is handily the finest original content I know of spearheaded by Netflix. I've had few experiences in memory (beyond Netflix-related memory) of watching anything this plainly exhilarating. A documentary mixed not w/ reenactments so much as a mobilized interrogation of obsessional narrative-making.

  • saitosouta's rating of the film Wormwood

    BEST OPENING CREDIT EVER IN HISTORY. Peter Sarsgaard, like a miserable dumbhead in action movie, like a family man with shining wedding ring, like freely flying wings against deep gravity, like a hermit in tranquil nirvana, like a Jesus Christ with all the guilty in the world, like a great mystery which anybody can't solve, with Perry Como's "No Other Love." The amazing art of Peter Sarsgaard. Free from doubt.

  • Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film Wormwood

    Like his short film, THE UMBRELLA MAN, this film teases us with the conspracies in the collective consciousness surrounding our government and Morris uses the expansive running time to return to the scene of the crime repeatedly (a la THIN BLUE LINE) except here it's the interview subject 's relentlessness that emerges as the real subject.

  • BLP's rating of the film Wormwood

    Netflix once again delivering another amazing docu-series, this time exploring the mysterious death of a government scientist. While the story itself is mind-blowing one would be remiss not to emphasize just how masterful the direction is in this series. Errol Morris did a truly outstanding job and the cinematography is excellent as well. This is a near perfect work.

  • afuchs's rating of the film Wormwood

    It takes much too long to understand that it's not about the CIA nor MKUltra, not even about Frank Olson, but about the personal quest and tragedy of Eric Olson, a tortuous journey interspersed by footage from a particular Hamlet movie and jerky collages (possibly by Eric), which seem absolutely gratuitous after about 150 min. At a certan point even the acting seems redundant.

  • film_frame's rating of the film Wormwood

    Morris capitalizes on our desperate need and flagellation to find some assemblance of truth. I didn't exactly buy into the from-all-sides approach, but his visual style and a career best performance from Peter Sarsgaard, make this a cinematic document, not to be missed.

  • Jacques de Villiers's rating of the film Wormwood

    Morris' Thin Blue Line essentially invented the true crime doc no-one can get enough of these days. So it's only fitting he receive a Netflix grant to break the rules he wrote. Little on this scale offers such a jigsaw of formal possibilities, presenting murderous government conspiracy as LSD collage. And it's held together by interviewee Eric Olson, the son too fixated on his father's death to ever live his own life
