THE REPORT

THE REPORT

Premieres
Scott Z. Burns

United States

2019 / 119’ / Hawaii Premiere

In the great tradition of ‘70s-era political thrillers like ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN and THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR, Scott Z. Burns’s latest film, THE REPORT, is an anomaly in today’s Hollywood, in that they “just don’t make em like they used to.” It was the pursuit for truth, the moment-to-moment investigative fervor of it, that was always so addictive and engrossing. In those movies, morality and drama became one.
A true-life drama about relatively recent events in Washington, D.C., the story starts with idealistic Senate staffer Daniel J. Jones (Adam Driver),  who in 2009, while working for Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Annette Bening), gets charged with heading up a Senate investigative report into the CIA’s use of “enhanced interrogation techniques” during the aftermath of 9/11. The impetus for creating the report is the revelation that the Agency has destroyed hundreds of hours of tapes of those same interrogations. What, exactly, went on in them? Jones spent five years and combed through 6.3 million pages of documents to get the answer.
