Bilott's story is a serious one and demands a responsible retelling. Fortunately, Haynes finds a way to do so without mistaking such a weighty task as an excuse to be plodding or bone-dry procedural.

It's a David and Goliath story with a central figure who knows what's right and keeps chipping away, bit by bit, until he gets to the truth.

Haynes also provides a sense of crushing dread-the kind of unsolvable paranoia these procedure-bound movies usually work to counter.

"Dark Waters" doesn't aspire to be something it's not. Like Bilott himself, it gets the job done, not by showboating, but by laying out the facts.
