Lurking below the movie is an unsavory irony: the killers and the filmmakers picked the hotel for the same reasons.

Maras is confident and unflinching in this portrait of the "mindless" terror, as one news report played in the film said. He is also masterful in delivering a range of emotions.

Making this kind of film inherently walks a fine line between art and exploitation, and Hotel Mumbai feels like the latter.

Hotel Mumbai is an excellent, white-knuckle thriller - and an unlikely crowd-pleaser.

What redeems "Hotel Mumbai" from morbid opportunism is that, in all but its slickest and most Hollywood moments, the thrills of Maras' heart-wrenching re-enactment are never an end unto themselves.

Whatever else it may offer to audiences - vicarious thrills, emotional catharsis - "Hotel Mumbai" clearly serves as a testament to those remarkable individuals.
