Looking in to the actual events and details surrounding the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program developed after 9/11, internal investigator Daniel Jones (Adam Driver) is tasked by Senator Dianne Feinstein (Annette Bening) to find what extent the agency went through to destroy evidence, subvert the law, and hide the truths from the American public. Written and Directed By Scott Z. Burns and based on actual events, this procedural thriller effectively manages to assemble many parts of modern U.S. history, redacted and not, into a compelling and damning screenplay. Well cast and acted, the entire ensemble fits together as pieces of a puzzle slowly peeling back layers of onion skin as we’re exposed to the caustic truths behind the Nation’s actions; in particular, nods to Driver as the social conscience of the film providing the perfect level of intensity, fear, and fight in the face of a giant. This snapshot of American history holds important lessons that all should be aware of. Not to be swept under the carpet and worthy of your time, The Report is rated R.
