If there is something the Internet likes, it is a good conspiracy. Today we have the new official trailer for Wormwood, a new six part show looking at some of the shadier sides of the CIA, including LSD and mind control. Watching the trailer, it looks like this will be one to watch, though in today’s current political climate I’m sure some may overreact over what they see. A few heads will turn to Twitter to see some interesting reactions, I’m sure.
Directed by boundary-breaking filmmaker Errol Morris, Wormwood explores the limits of knowledge about the past and the lengths we’ll go in our search for the truth. A twisting, evolving story of one man’s sixty-year quest to identify the circumstances of his father’s mysterious death. Combining a virtuosic performance by Peter Sarsgaard with Morris’ legendary interview style, Wormwood examines this case from every possible angle, bringing the viewer face-to-face with some of the United States’ darkest secrets. Wormwood sets a new standard for nonfiction filmmaking and finds Morris working on his grandest canvas yet.
Wormwood – a Netflix original story – launches globally on Netflix 15th December.
