The Report

The Report ★★★½

Discussed HERE

Scott Z. Burns' underseen Pu-239 is one of my favorite adapted screenplays and has one of my favorite performances to date from Oscar Isaac. The Report though falls somewhere between the letdown that was The Laundromat and The Informant! With too many talking heads in addition to time and location jumps that keep it from maintaining a strong pulse. Although it manages to create life and character in the face of a boring corporate and unremarkable background. It looked almost too clean, and lacked a clear visual authorial voice which I think Burns has yet to develop. Though I sincerely hope he continues to get chances to develop as his work is always intriguing.

Expert use of John McCain, that hit hard.
