Critic Reviews for The Report
The film, written and directed by Scott Z. Burns, takes its cue from the stern dedication of its hero; the result feels pressurized, disheartening, and fraught.
A film as thought-provoking as this should pack more thrills; the majority of the suspense is generated from Driver's countenance, not Burns' ability to captivate an audience.
This velocity, along with the performances, helps turn a movie that's essentially about a 6,700-page report (eventually boiled down to 525) into riveting storytelling.
"The Report" leaves you feeling exhausted and defeated, but that's its intent. Mission accomplished.
"The Report" diligently abides by the logical proposition that no end justifies premeditated immoral means as it scrutinizes how the CIA succumbed to post-9/11 paranoia and authorized sadistic abuses in the name of freedom.
