    This is a very gripping new film by Paul Greengrass about a terrorist attack in Norway and the aftereffects of the attack. It is currently both in limited theatrical release and on Netflix streaming. I watched it on Netflix even though it is playing in my area.

    Where are you (generally)? We don't have it here at all, but if we did I would make a point to go see it to encourage the idea of Netflix giving their films theatrical releases. I guess I'll cue it up at home instead but would really like to see this on a big screen.

    A very powerful film that should be seen. The acting, writing and directing are all outstanding. I would hope this film comes into Oscar consideration next year.

    9/10.

    All Spoilers in this post. Only for people who have seen the movie.

    Loved it. First I wasn't sure, I was going to give this an 8/10 because I had issues with the second part of the movie. I still have issues. It lost momentum. It's fascinating to think how you can tell this story. Is the second part of the movie really necessary? I feel it was too long and it could have been shorter. Instead of showing the aftermath that much (especially giving the terrorist a platform), show the beforemath. Show the victims in their normal lives doing things for 20-30 mins. Then show those people that we followed and got attached to, perish. It shows the inhumanity. To show that it's not only the background characters that die. This is how you feel in these movies, the protagonist always survives and overcomes the tragedy but it's not always the case. Other people died, they are not background characters.

    At the very end something happened that it completely won me over and I forgot all these questions. The lawyer did not shake the terrorist's hand and when he said I would have done this (terrorist act) again, the lawyer said, I'm paraphrasing "Then we will fight you, we will beat you. My children and their children.". Such an important line, especially because that the lawyer who defended him says it. It summarizes well the essence and the core of the movie.
