IF YOU DON’T SEE A MOVIE THIS CHRISTMAS…

December 11th, 2012

This is the movie not to see

Glenn Greenwald’s updates (at the bottom) are vital for understanding the meta of this film:

That so many reviewers walked away with a pro-torture message from the film – that torture was key to finding bin Laden – means that large numbers of viewers likely will as well, regardless of the after-the-fact claimed intent of the filmmakers. That, by itself, is highly problematic and worthy of commentary.

Spencer Ackerman concludes:

What endures on the screen are scenes that can make a viewer ashamed to be American, in the context of a movie whose ending scene makes viewers very, very proud to be American.
