Published Sep 24, 2015After opening at Hot Docs earlier this year, Lyric R. Cabral and David Felix Sutcliffe's FBI documentary (T)error is headed for a limited release next month. Now, a trailer for the film has emerged.
The documentary follows an FBI informant who, unbeknownst to the government organization, invites a camera crew along with him on everything he does. As our review explains, it's not quite as exciting as its mission statement claims. "For what sounds like an awfully tantalizing premise, the documentary's intrigue never really amounts to much more than transcripts of text messages exchanged between the two and recaps of their meetings.
That said, the documentary "reveals some troubling truths about the ways that information is obtained regarding suspects and how much weight is given to evidence that might not be as damning as it appears."
Based on the trailer, it still looks like a fairly compelling watch. Check it out below, courtesy of Indiewire.
