    Great chain reaction off Drive, in that Lance Reddick's character receives a similar wound to Bryan Cranston's character in Drive.

    The entire film I am just thinking about how much I appreciate digital black and white, and why it should be utilized more (and then I immediately recalled a conversation I had with someone last week, who said their family wouldn't watch It's A Wonderful Life, because it is black and white). How they shot the film is actually really interesting, but even without having read the article before watching the film, the impressive low light shooting is extremely apparent.…

    I've watched these films how many times, and I just tuned in to the obvious Christmas reference that is HOLLY McClane.

    The film is top notch throughout, but the last ten minutes are perfection.

    There is definitely some interesting (terrifying) footage in this, and the issue of police militarization is important to become educated about, but this doc is pretty much just an information dump, that lacks a strong through line narrative. Funny enough, I started talking about Persistent Surveillance Systems and their morally complex process, and then the company was featured in the doc literally while I was explaining what they do.

    Would make a killer triple bill with Aguirre, the Wrath of God and A Field In England.
