It's not All The Presidents's Men, but it's eye opening nonetheless
Verified purchase
It has a steady pace, and despite anyone who either was too young to remember or hasn't been living under a rock for the past twenty years, it gives a well documented account of how some of America's darkest days were covered up.
There is an obvious agenda in the telling; that the "The things we did to them were no worse than the things they did to us" excuse is flawed by virtue of it being of zero practical value.
The scenes at the heart of the inquiry are disturbing without needing to be visually graphic, allowing the film to rely on the narrative to drive it rather than shock us into agreeing with its message. That shows they had faith in its message, and the script. There is no, "back and to the left... back and to the left... back and to the left..." scene in this movie.
Considering the most useful piece of "Truth" EIT ever recovered was, "We discovered that the truth is that he's lying to us..." it is well worth making a film that highlights that not only is torture immoral and illegal, but also notoriously unreliable to the point of being completely useless.
Adam Driver is just brilliant in everything he does, and and the way the film shows his determination and frustration without ever needing for him to scream and shout shows the strength of writer and director.
There will be about 43% of Americans who hate it on principle, and that's fine.
But when watching it, try to put that political bias aside and judge it on its merits as piece of art. You'll still hate it, but you might appreciate it as well.
If you agree with its politics, you'll probably be wearing the T shirt next week.

5 Star Gripping story and excellent performance from Adam Driver
Verified purchase
Excellent cast, script and importantly story. Films like these should be made more often and I hope this can reach a wider audience I also highly recommend seeing Official Secrets and Spotlight if you havnt already.

5.0 out of 5 stars
Great film. Disturbing subject set against our own memories of that recent period.
Verified purchase
Excellent film. Shame the cia people involved all got promoted and one is now Director of the CIA under Trump. Reward for a record of panicked failure in using intelligence to properly prevent attacks, trying clearly unsuccessful and illegal means to gather intelligence - the effects of which haunt America to this day, - and blatant face saving is not a good look. The only gap in the film is maybe highlighting much more the fbi's more successful role in investigating and preventing attacks and make it clearer the same people who repeatedly supported EIT were the same ones who blocked the fbi investigating the hijackers before they attacked the twin towers, and maybe any via successes around Osama and other attacks where they didn't torture people, if any.

Brilliant and NON Partisan
Verified purchase
A totally fascinating film that gave a tremendous insight into the subject matter. It was tremendously frustrating however that no one was held accountable but that is life and not all stories have happy endings.

The acting was exceptional and highly credible.

Truth on CIA Torture
Verified purchase
Brilliant performances told with gritty determination about times when an uncomfortable truth must be told to protect a fragile democracy. A film about awful acts of barbaric torture, humiliation and fruitless aggression that failed to extract any significant intelligence and only showed the CIA in the worst light. A story that couldn't be told about such torture under a Trump regime; not because it wouldn't happen, but rather the truth would be pushed into a dungeon of secrecy by an autocratic, lying presidency. Will the McCain-Feinstein amendment banning torture, hold true in years to come or will Republicans find a way to ignore it?

For your consideration
Verified purchase
Many excellent reviews here to tell how well the narrative is conveyed and I agree, hence the 5 stars. After that it comes down to a moral judgment, for some a political judgement, as to whether there is even a story here if, as many might feel, the end justifies the means. For me a proud nation, seen as a super power, has a responsibility to wield (and indeed model) how that power is used wisely, justly, and to ensure that it can hold the gaze of all those who watch on with unflinching integrity. The film ably asks the viewer to consider their own response to that.
