MOVIE OF THE WEEK: The Whistleblower
This was another underwhelming week for me in my movie-watching, so I will once again highlight I film I saw earlier in the year. My "Movie of the Week" is the underrated and under-seen film - "The Whistleblower". This film is a grim, intense thriller that reminds us of the unreported evil that pervades throughout society. The title character is incredibly fascinating and admirable, impeccably acted by Rachel Weisz. The film provides more than just simple entertainment. It is a scathing exposé on a shameful UN coverup. The injustices portrayed in the film certainly left me angry. If that was the intention, then it definitely succeeded. Some of the scene choices were a tad too obvious but overall, this was a well-made film. Go check it out.
