Given the haste - it has been just 7 years since that fateful day - [director Erik] Poppe opts to portray the remaining 73 minutes in a shot-sequence... as if he were more interested in putting us in the experiential terrain. [Full review in Spanish]

That U - July 22 would attack its audience is one thing; that it would try to get at them by using its characters is on another level of distastefulness.
