  •  It's the best reviewed film this year: (3+ / 0-)

    (link), it came in 3rd in the prestigious Indiewire poll, and it was award Best Picture by the National Board of Review, and the critics in Boston and New York.  It's probably going to pick up a few more once the official awards season rolls around.

    I'm holding out until I see it.  Everything I've heard outside of the political realm has said that the film is much more equivocal, but ... You can't exactly be equivocal about torture, so... I'm going to see it for myself.

    I'd also note that Andrew Sullivan, who is quoted in the diary as having "reached the same conclusion", most emphatically did not.  His criticisms of the film came before he saw it.  Now that he's seen it, his opinion has flipped entirely.   Make of that what you will.
