Enemy of the State

Enemy of the State ★★★★

The broad daylight assassination of a public official in a public space with more protection than domestic ideals that are sold to citizens.  Public—as in the deep state—versus private sphere, where ultimately the former can manipulate the intimacies of the latter. The fragile illusion of national security that begins to chip away at the fragile construction of domesticity. Tony Scott’s filmmaking is so frenetic and galvanizing that it translates its intrusions into already feeling irreversible—he was right.
