To be a whistleblower or not
26 October 2019 | by phd_travelSee all my reviews

Well worth watching. This is a sparse effective but sometimes hard to follow movie about the murder of innocent Afghan civilians.

Alexander Skarsgård is making a name playing villains from BLL to this. His soft spoken menacing soldier is memorable. Nat Wolff looks a bit too clean cut and intellectual type to be the type of person who would enlist. His dilemma is well portrayed and the fact he didn't whistleblow is all the more tragic and realistic.

This movie is short. Wish there'd had been more story shown. Some of the events aren't easy to follow like what led to the exposure. Knowing the facts of the true story helps. The actual atrocities are clearly and effectively shown. Probably some of the more effective scenes of war crimes since Vietnam war movies.

A brave movie to make considering not a lot of people want to see this for entertainment.
