Now this is is a "MOVIE"...top notch stuff. I had no interest in watching this at all as I'm not crazy about political films like this Munich,etc. But for some reason perhaps because it won Oscar for BP I had to give it a whirl and glad I did.
It was very well executed ii every dept IMO: acting, direction, script, wild locations,..everything had to click which was not easy at all to do for this subject matter and it could have been very boring. I was prob most astounded that the movie was not at all overly complicated or convoluted like for a political drama but it moved very quick and I was really on the edge of my seat with suspense the last hour. For once in a a blue moon I agree with the Academy...best picture indeed. And anyone can watch this, not just boring intelligent historians or adults either.
