    ★★★½

    The bold narrative structure made the kinetic energy sputter at times throughout, but I ultimately appreciated the reason behind it. The exploration of truth and privilege elevated it from “Ocean’s 11 for Dummies” to something more thought provoking.

    A fitting bookend to several fantastic performances by Blanchett in 2015. Rooney Mara gives a quiet, stunning performance. Expression in the eyes often reminded me of Bel Powley in "Diary..."The score will be with me for a very long time.

    This film offers us an intimate perspective and becomes part of the history it is documenting by the end. I leaned further and further forward as the tension mounted to a chilling, eye-opening crescendo. The ending is a pitch perfect and left me thinking about my own privacy as I instinctively turned my phone on (and back onto the information highway) as I walked back to the car.
