The Report ★★★½

The investigation and scrutinization of governmental misconduct is a crucial pillar of American democracy. 

The Report is an often dry, occasionally revelatory procedural that highlights the maddening stubborness it takes to achieve bipartisanship in this country. It stumbles out of the gate, but ultimately Scott Z. Burns and company provide what most political enthusiasts will see to be a satisfying conclusion.

Adam Driver is swimming in the shallow end here, but he elevates the material as only he can. Between this and Marriage Story, he deserves a multitude of golden statuettes.
