The Report

The Report ★★★½

Searing and methodical, if a bit dry and overlong, "The Report" ultimately suffers from the same problems facing the titular report: It's too late. Anyone willing to watch this film and listen to what it has to say is likely well-aware of the facts driving the narrative. Still, Driver is excellent and the ways in which first-time feature director Scott Z. Burns builds intensity from people reading documents is impressive. A sturdy, efficient document for future generations.
