My father was U.S. Army counter-intelligence during Korea; he was a devout Ike Republican and prosecutor. He said, categorically, that it had been learned long ago (even during his time in the military) that torture [and I'd include enhanced interrogation here] did not work. Not only that, but if you couldn't get information lawfully, then it wasn't worth a damn. It is too bad--and we are learning this even now--that some believe advantage seems to count more than character these days. But a human being is his or her character, which is proven by action--or hopefully lack thereof when it comes to unlawful or unethical action. It's time for honesty, integrity, and character to matter again, as well as the rule of law. This film shows, too, another truth: that the truth itself will out, no matter what. Those who do not heed that will know it soon enough.

Never Again
Verified purchase
The Report is a look into history. For those who might not remember EITs and the politics surrounding them, it's an important film. Watch it and know what happened, so it will never happen again.

A very powerful movie; well-written and more importantly, well acted. This is definitely a movie that will stick with me. It also does a great job summarizing what we kept seeing in the news all those years ago. I remember hearing about this but I didn't pay any attention to it as life was in my way. This is a must-see for people like myself or anyone who had no idea this was even happening.

Important subject
Verified purchase
Again, only by exposing what has transpired do Americans see any kind of accountability, justice or fortitude. Why is it always "do this evil until someone says not to" that the NSA, CIA, and arguably the FBI finally capitulates with a "we were wrong, but we're good now." Torture is and always will be evil and those that practice it will never win the hearts and minds of people. Trump has publicly condoned torture saying "it works, and if anyone says it doesn't work, it does,..." We've known for 400 years since the inquisition torture is never justified, have we entered the new dark ages?

Five minutes in...12 examples of propaganda
Verified purchase
Don't bother. More propaganda, slanted bias. So tired of this type of story. That's why I like Norwegian, Swedish, and British shows, less propaganda and more entertainment. So very weary of this ...

Liberal propoganda
Verified purchase
Might have been good if it wasn't so liberally biased. I felt like I was watching a 2 hour commercial for the democrats.

Leftist Propaganda--Absolute Garbage.
Verified purchase
This movie is a 2 hr propaganda piece for Democrats. Here's the bottom line: enhanced interrogation works and saves lives--American lives. If you don't like how we protect your life and freedom, either pick up a weapon and do it yourself, or just be quiet and be grateful that no one blew up your kids today. This movie's load of crap.
