The Little Things ★★½

Weirdly dull. Damaged older cop tries to guide younger cop through an investigation of a serial killer. Much of the film seems to involve tedious scenes that want to appear more profound than they actually are (Washington’s character is called Deacon and there are two sequences where he drives past a giant crucifix on a hill... but no sense why the character notices it). With a tighter plot and direction this could have been a very good plot. The “reveals” at the end are systematically silly and spoil.
