I, um, what?
Couldn't manage to squeeze it in before the election, ha? Shame... :icon_cool
They actually moved it to December after they got some criticism that it could be viewed as propaganda for the Obama campaign.
Could be viewed? Didn't they get like unprecedented access to SEALS and the White House? Yeah, I can see how that could be viewed as propaganda for the Obama campaign...
I don't know about unprecedented, but the level of cooperation from the administration was definitely unusual. The film was already in the planning stages (as an open-ended manhunt film) before Bin Laden was killed, but both the filmmakers and the politicians saw the opportunity to make it a lot more once our guys got him. However, since the film got bumped till a month after the election, it looks like the filmmakers got the better part of the deal.
It's the Fever Pitch of war movies.
Pretty gutsy call. :icon_cool
Are they going to show how waterboarding helped get the information we used to find bin Laden?
Tits? I don't see movies without tits.
Is this going to be as unrealistic as the hurt locker? If it is, then fuck her.
I miss the 80's too.
Yeah... gratuitous tit shots were nice.
I won't watch it unless they show the head shot.
Does it mention Shakil Afridi, and the gutsy call to continue sending billions in aid to his torturers?
There is a lot of anticipation for this movie. It has Oscar buzz. The last 30 minutes are in real-time.
CIA complains about depictions in Osama bin Laden movie movie
does anyone know if there is a way to watch this and other movies streaming on the internet. if there is can someone pm me? thanks.
IDK about streaming but definitely don't download any torrents of it. It was made by the same people as The Hurt Locker and those guys went after tens of thousands of people who downloaded that movie illegally.
Historically it seems that your more likely to get the ISP letter or sued downloading indie flicks or movies that flopped in theaters.
I get all my movies/shows/music illegally and I'm just going to what until it's released on iTunes or Amazon and rent it.
I'll keep an eye out for a stream though. I haven't found any screener copies so any stream will probably be poor cam quality.
I know of a website that did stream movies and TV but now it seems like its only TV. Possibly because of the MPA; i don't know.
This is the time of year where most movies that come out and are on the web illegally are screener copies for the oscars.
Quite the asshole.
I blame Opie.
These people have no idea how the real world works.
Hate to tell them what their own film is about, but it clearly and unequivocally contradicts the notion that torture doesn't work, or that there are better ways to collect information about terror networks.
It doesn't advocate for anything, it just presents the facts, but, if enough people watch it, it's gonna make the narrative by which torture doesn't work a very hard sell. That's why these activists are angry. They're delusional, not stupid. They understand what this film will do to their credibility.
Watched a screener copy this weekend, It was good but not great. It was two and a half hours with almost the whole first two hours just being intell and backstory. I feel like it could have been 90 minute Nat Geo documentary and I would have been just as satisfied.
