The cast, including creepy turns from Tim Blake Nelson and Bob Balaban, are all letter perfect.
Wormwood is instantly recognizable as quintessentially Errol Morris, with its in-depth interviews and dramatized sequences echoing The Thin Blue. But it also takes him into uncharted new territory, not least in terms of length and complexity.
If Morris overreaches with Wormwood, it's nonetheless good to have him back, in this moment of political and epistemological chaos: He reminds us that skepticism is the only thing we can trust.
