Camp X-Ray is about a young U.S. military woman played by Kristen Stewart who is assigned to Guantanamo Bay, where she gets acquainted with a Muslim detainee Peyman Moadi (they don't call them prisoner because calling them so should apply the Geneva-convention rights).
Good performances from Stewart Kristen and Maodi. It is slow and yet it is building up the interest of the audience with curiosity to understand, what follows next. Give it a try (but don't fall for brainwashing).
Directed and written by Scott Frank - the film is based on Lawrence Block's grim mystery novel of the same name. Film stars Liam Neeson.
Set in late 1999 - Matt (Liam Neeson) is a Brooklyn private-eye, holstering unlicensed gun, and attending rehab center for alcoholics. His past is jammed by the memory of mistakenly shooting a teenage girl in her eye that led to her instant death.
Matt gets an assignment to investigate the whereabouts of a duo of psychopath killers, who had kidnapped wife of a local drug-smuggler an later dumped her body into pieces---having gotten away with the money. The widower wants revenge for that.
Liam Neeson as usual brings purity to his character, at some instances you can actually resemble the tone with that of China-Town (of course there are references to classic 'The Maltese Falcon'). The dialogues play vital role in assurance of the audience's expectations in next level scenes to follow.
Photography in the film is well in comparison with the settings of Brooklyn (New York City).
