The continuing adventures of CIA agent Evelyn Salt.
Did You Know?
Scriptwriter Kurt Wimmer has been described as criticizing the US cult of indoctrination in his previous film SALT (2010): In Wimmer's world, everyone's a liar, and nobody lies more than the people you've enshrined in your heart as authority figures. The people you trust to guide you and shape you are actually brainwashers and thugs, and any values they instill in you are just cult indoctrination. You see this pretty clearly in Equilibrium, in which the whole of society has become a kind of Prozac-driven cult, but the theme returns quite strongly in Salt as well. In Salt, nobody is who they seem, and it's not so much a question of whether someone has been secretly brainwashed - it's how many times they've been brainwashed, and which round of brainwashing will be the one that takes. Is Salt science fiction? ...Present-day America, Wimmer seems to suggest, is the new Wimmerian dystopia. See more
