'Landscapers' showcases Olivia Colman and David Thewlis in a true crime mystery
The blueprint for "Landscapers," a four-part British miniseries airing on HBO, turns out to be considerably sturdier than the construction, somewhat wasting the dream pairing of Olivia Colman and David Thewlis. It's still an interesting detour into bizarre true crime, but so stylized as to blunt the overall impact by being too cute for its own good.

'The Forever Prisoner' explores how the US compromised its values after Sept. 11
If a goal of the Sept. 11 terrorists was to undermine American values, "The Forever Prisoner" makes the case on that score, at least, the bad guys won. Focusing on the treatment of Abu Zubaydah, a former associate of Osama bin Laden held in detention since 2002, director Alex Gibney's HBO documentary argues the US response marked "our retreat from the ideals we claim to be fighting for."
