Just got back from a showing this afternoon.
This is KB's masterpiece.
A superb movie, particularly technically.
The editing and camerawork is first rate....edge-of-my-seat experience here.
I have no idea how anyone, even halfway honest, could give this film a BP nomination and deny her a Best Director nod.
A travesty IMO.
The reality, the history of the Hunt for UBL has, no doubt, yet to be completely released by the govt. to the media and probably for very good reasons.
As it is, this movie is fairly close to the declassified info.
As far as politics go, there isn't much.
What the film does do is show the CIA is basically a bunch of bumblers, who couldn't find their own butts with 2 hands, let alone UBL.
Of course, that was already known (read the 911 Commission Report).
I don't know if this is BP of the year, but it is an extremely good movie.
