Dark Waters

Dark Waters

Well, THIS was frigging bleak. Captivating, and definitely a vehicle to send you through an emotional wringer – but incredibly well-assembled. The Sisyphean task of taking on Du Pont is a narrative that rings true from other similar stories I’ve heard (Marlboro/tobacco lobby, Union Carbide/Bhopal) where Giant Corporation rides roughshod over the health of local community then employs their weight to endlessly stall any kind of progress through the court system. Really has you scratching your head at the end wondering what the point of clinging to evidence is when the game’s stacked so heavily against you.  Hey ho.
