Driver plays a wonk work-obsessed and justice-minded enough to keep pushing when everyone else is pushing back. He's supported by an excellent cast...
September 3, 2020
A comprehensive, emotional gut-punch search for the truth.
August 28, 2020
A vital account of a nation trying to ensure that they hold themselves accountable in the eyes of history.
August 16, 2020
It's another scientific example of acting craft from Driver.

A Herculean mission consuming seven years, The Report exhilaratingly details his rapidly dwindling team's exhaustive trawl through thousands of CIA emails. While that might sound stuffy, it zings.

The film is relatively hard-hitting in certain ways, but pulls its punches at decisive moments.
July 28, 2020
It is a valuable lesson in failings at both the levels of the state and of human beings, but it could have done with feeling like a lot more than... well, a report.
May 18, 2020
A wordy, worthy paper chase of a movie, albeit one that ultimately chases its own tail to an mildly frustrating end.
April 10, 2020
...the story itself of course demands attention and for a certain cross-section of film lovers will almost certainly find an audience.

The film's closing sequence that sees Jones walk out of the Senate building after the report is finally made public is testament to Burns' steely determination to make a movie that didn't get lost in its theatrics.

The Report turns out to be one of the most compelling political dramas of recent years
February 25, 2020
Slow but significant in the wake of Washington's whistle-blowers, now streaming on Amazon Prime

Timely and thought-provoking.
February 20, 2020
A film that feels small but it's as relevant as any revealing political flick about the power of truth. [Full review in Spanish].
February 19, 2020
Driver's lean and tight performance is what keeps the story minimally fueled, even when the movie stalls at its most frustrating passivity.
February 14, 2020
This is important storytelling because it also provides specks of hope that sometimes the truth wills itself out when it's given galvanized shoves by those who still give a damn, even in a democracy that's gone to hell.
February 5, 2020
A gripping procedural drama that is also a love letter to paperwork.
January 31, 2020
For a political thriller, The Report is more sad than revelatory, more melancholy than cathartic. Jones's work was not entirely in vain. His revelations of a cover-up, though heavily doctored, eventually were made public.
January 25, 2020
The Report is a somewhat conflicted movie about a somewhat conflicted piece of American history, but, despite is dryness and occasional roaring off track, the essence is compelling.
January 24, 2020
This is a very informative movie, and the parallels between that investigation and the current impeachment investigations are revealing. However, this movie is somewhat static and didactic, although it does project moral power.
