Zero Dark Thirty

Aka The hunt for Bin Laden. This film was slightly controversial on release as some people claimed it endorsed torture. This film does no such thing. It certainly contains torture and does not hide how traumatic it can be. Whilst there is no an explicit condemnation within the film, the information obtained via torture ultimately does not prove useful. Therefore the film is neutral about torture.

The film did feel a bit long but as it deals with a search that took several years, the duration feels appropriate.
