22 July ★★

appreciate the sentiment here to confront extreme right-wing ideology but there’s just so little to be gleaned from this style. isolating the issue in greengrass’ hyper-real, docudrama reenactments of emergency situations is a very simplistic, feel-bad then feel-good way of denouncing it without actually considering where it comes from and what its aftermath on the fabric of society actually looks like. this is “thoughts and prayers” cinema.
