Tight - enjoyed Oscar Isaac's performance.

One of my all time favourite films & possibly my favourite Villeneuve film. A fictional dark thriller that perfectly encapsulates the blackbox reality that is American intelligence agencies, the war on drugs, & their imperialist agenda without being cloaked with a veil of American patriotism *cough* Zero Dark Thirty *cough.*
Solid script and character development for such a simple plot. All-around great casting; John C. Reilly & Joaquin Phoenix are a perfect tandem that really play off one another well - an unexpected match made in heaven. One of my favourite performances from Jake Gyllenhaal - subtle, but beautifully transforms his character effectively.
