"The Report (Burns, Starring Adam Driver 2019)"

Good lord is that a hell of a cast. Driver has been getting Oscar buzz off this since it premiered at Sundance.

I'm a sucker for procedurals and while 9/11 focused films have largely not done well I think now that there aren't a glut of them and given the current moment we are in politically in this country this could do well.

Really well done.

This would make a great double-feature with Zero Dark Thirty as an examination of both films and both films perspectives given their respective distance from the events. Also they are very similar in a number of ways in terms of structure.

Adam Driver is one of my favorite young actors. Annette Benning is great as Feinstein and they do an excellent job of casting in terms of John Brennan and a number of other real life people involved.

One of this year's best films

Maybe a bit speechy and a bit cornball at times, but some sequences (like the Powerpoint about the torture methods) were really terrifically handled.
