The Report

The Report is a docudrama about the torture carried out by the CIA after 9/11. Adam Driver heads the riveting cast as an CIA agent working under Annette Benning who portrays Diane Feinstein to a tee. Driver’s character is heading an investigation in CIA practices. He always is dripping with charisma. Jon Ham is effective as the press secretary. Despite the depressing subject matter, director Scott Z. Burns makes the horrible degrading water torture scenes compelling viewing. The political compromises and conspiracy theories are clearly delineated. No political figures escape this scathing brutal analysis. Unfortunately, we’ve become familiar with redactions and illegal hacking. The somewhat happy ending makes this essential viewing.
