Preaching to the choir…

I don’t have to tell you that the drama unfolding in Washington right now is thick. The 24-hour news crackles with colorful graphics and ominous musical stingers as commentators rattle off their particular take on the happening of the minute. It’s enough to switch over to “90-Day Fiancé” and forget about the real-world altogether.

Well, in Hollywood, they won’t let you forget. The latest ripped-from-the-headlines narrative exposé is Amazon’s “The Report.” The film reminds us of the CIA’s post 9/11 Detention and Interrogation Program. This black eye was investigated thoroughly by Senate staffer Daniel J. Jones. And this movie about his investigation makes you feel like you were there while he read, and read, and kept reading for years. A laborious, but a none-the-less absorbing film, “The Report” will be perfect for the viewer who can’t get enough bad political news.
