I like movies that make you think. That maybe even have a moral, but not a clear one. One that you have to decide for yourself. Unthinkable is one of those rare movies, that is unpredictable.
Torture is not something that Americans do to their enemies. People we take prisoner are treated fairly. They have rights! At least that is what I believed until I saw this movie. After Unthinkable, I can understand how minds are changed, why waterboarding is used, that our foes can become our victims.
There is so much to this movie. It will keep you on the edge of your seat. Each new bit of the character of the players leaves you a bit more confused. The director did an excellent job of getting you from A to B and you can easily see how you would get to C.
I don’t like the ending, but I can’t tell you what it is, because it would be too much of a spoiler.
Unthinkable is SO worth watching. And you let me know what you think of torture afterward. I thought I was against it. Actually the director of the film is against it, that is why he changed the ending….. there are several different versions of THE END out there.
You can read more here, or buy it on amazon if you want to . It is certainly worth the twenty bucks.
I don’t think torture is unthinkable anymore…..
