What I liked:

  • Jon Stewart wrote the screenplay and directed it.  Yes, that Jon Stewart.
  • Gael Garcia Bernal is wonderful.  
  • It also stars Dimitri Leonidas, Haluk Bilginer, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Golshifteh Farahani, Claire Foy and Nasser Faris.
  • It's based on the true story of Maziar Bahari.
  • It takes an interesting look at the way technology/the internet play a role modern warfare.
  • It showcases the importance of hope and freedom.

What I didn't like:
  • I think it was a little soft.  I'm not sure people fully understood how bad it was for him in prison.
  • I want to know what would have happened if he did not put the blind fold on.

Grade: B+
