Torturing for Freedom?,
This review is from: Unthinkable [Blu-ray]  [US Import] (Blu-ray)
It has to be said, right off the bat, that this is a tough watch. It examines the limits, state and personal, that are morally justifiable in stopping a Terrorist from killing millions of Americans in the name of Allah.
Michael Sheen's bravura performance as the Islamic convert terrorist is stunning. But this is not a Bruce Willis smart-mouth, action thriller to whileaway a Saturday night with Takeaway and wine.
This is a thoughtful, intense treatise on the nature of modern Western civilisation and is brutal and uncompromising, occasionally coming close to Torture Porn. No comic-book violence here.
This is a serious film with an ambiguous ending and if you are prepared for this, it is well worth an airing.
