Zero Dark Thirty

I hadn't seen this one before and thought I would give it a watch.  It basically givers the tracking down and capture of Osama Bin Laden in 2011.  Not a cheery watch, I somehow felt very unmoved by this drama, and thought it boring and overly long.  I am not a fan of torture scenes and so struggled to watch the beginning of the movie.  A 2/5.

I watched this and was struck at how normal the Americans treated torture. I also noted the salutation they gave each other ('protect the homeland'); I suppose it built up morale, but it sounded too much like a political slogan. I found the film scarey for reasons I don't thinbk were intended.
