    to see it and make up his-her own mind; that's always preferable to relying on the opinions of others. (Incidentally, I had a video of it - my wife is in the WGA -- so I didn't have to give them money!)

    I will say, as well, that I don't agree with all the criticism of the movie; I don't agree, for example, that it casts President Obama -- he's shown on TV condemning torture, the single dissenting voice in the film -- in a negative light. I think some things in the film are at least more ambiguous than some of the detractors argue. That said, I think -- well, you know what I think.

      and your joining me in encouraging people to see this and make up their own minds.

      That separates you from unfortunately many who have encouraged a boycott or not voting for awards or other anti-intellectual responses.

    •  Obama is not the only dissenting voice on torture (0+ / 0-)

      in the film.  The CIA agent who did the first 30 film minutes of torture is, too.

      "Privatize to Profitize" explains every single Republican economic, social and governing philosophy. Take every taxpayer dollar from defense, education, health care, public lands, retirement - privatize it, and profit from it.
