Goofs

(45:55) At Peterson Wyatt, where all lobbyists are now gathered, Elizabeth asks for "arguments and rebuttals". Alex then starts writing on a board the first four letters of "National Register". The camera switches to Elizabeth speaking, then, when camera returns to Alex, the size and position of the writing are clearly different : bigger and more to the left. See more »

Maybe not for 10, but certainly it's above 7.
28 January 2017 | by antonionevescaninSee all my reviews

Just watched the movie and I have to say I'm shocked that it's rated so low on IMDb, as I have watched much, MUCH worse movies with better ratings. Scrolling to evidentially biased ratings and reviews I'm giving it a 10, just hoping it will balance out the harm done. Jessica Chastain delivered great performance, but she wasn't the only one, whole crew was really good, but she really did earn that globe nomination. Furthermore, movie is beautifully captured, cinematography is great and whole atmosphere is really nice. The last but not the least, it's a great thriller, with an unpredictable twist and not boring for a moment. I do understand it's might be different experience watching it for an European audience, as from the start second amendment and gun legislative is for most of us here absurd, however, although I can understand that for some Americans it might seem one sided story, my question is aren't many of story lines one sided, to be honest it's not advertised as documentary, so why should you even expect other side to be equally represented? Strongly recommend to give this movie attention it deserves.
