Twitter Capsule: Trim feature whose richest idea—what if perps and victims have nothing to say to each other?—is also a tad vague.

VOR:   Beyond its strangely de-dramatized realization of a scenario ripe for high drama, this 77-minute mini-feature takes few risks and offers few plausible insights.
