Here is my favorite review:

Fast-paced, thought-provoking and at times moving

Great crime thriller, well done, tight story, jumps all over without jumping the shark. It’s old-Hollywood styled, with femme fatales, insurance scams, hitmen and abusers.

I liked the vibe, and it reminded me of Disorganized Crime, Seven Psychopaths, Pulp Fiction. Rotten people with amusing problems.

I’m not a Simon Pegg fan, truth be told. Here, though, he delivers. I’d say his best, of the ones I’ve seen, since Shaun of the Dead.

But it’s an ensemble, with a group of awesome actors, and so many dirty deeds done dirt cheap, but the price steadliy rises. So, a near-perfect crime thriller, and you should get it if you like those. Of course not a US production. Hasn’t been a decent crime story here since Tarantino.

The murder of justice.

I was first alerted to Closed Circuit (2013) because of Jennifer Epps’ review.  This is an important film, one of the most relevant and insightful of the so-called “war on terror.”

This terrorism story parallels numerous real world conspiracies and cover-ups, including but not limited to the London bombings 2005, the 9/11 attacks, the 1993 World Trade Center attacks, Operation Gladio and various terrorists known to be working for intelligence services such as Ali Mohamad (and potentially Ayman al Zawahiri and Osama bin Laden).

The film focuses on the people tasked with defending terrorism suspects and essentially upholding the Constitution, habeas corpus and the Magna Carta – what we understand as “western civilization.”  The defense team is the target of intelligence surveillance and worse when the secrets are deemed more valuable than the people involved.

With precedents such as Lynne Stewart, who was imprisoned as a defense lawyer for a notable terrorist, the pressure on the justice system is real.  The surface can only be scratched in a paranoid thriller movie.  Secret trials, secret evidence, pervasive surveillance, and a longstanding history of intelligence agencies double dealing with terrorists around the world and at home, this type of story is highly relevant to current events (such as the Boston Marathon bombing).

4.5/5
