I didn't know anything about this case before I saw the film, so when I saw "Reality Winner" and FBI - well, I was expecting a sort of "Slumdog Millionaire" type scenario. Nope, nothing like. That is the real name of a woman (Sydney Sweeney) who worked for the American government translating Iranian documents. She arrives home one day to find "Garrick" (Josh Hamilton) and "Taylor" (Marchánt Davis) parked on her lawn with a warrant to search her, her home, her car... She's bemused and a bit nonplussed, especially as her visitors seem way more concerned about the wellbeing of her cat and her dog! Anyway, into the house they eventually go and the interrogation begins. For a while, there is quite an effective intensity to that process and using, as it does, the original transcript of the interview as it happened, it delivers an authentic looking presentation of just how effective these agents can be. It's history, so there's no jeopardy - and I think Sweeney turns in quite a strong performance as the plot thickens but it all takes far too long to get going and the production is all just a bit too staccato. The thread does go some way to revealing the intimidatory powers of Uncle Sam when he feels aggrieved and that makes for uncomfortable watching at times. It isn't an especially memorable drama, and it doesn't need a cinema - but it will be fine to watch on the television whilst posing a few questions about what is or is not in the "public interest".

I may have a weakness for short movies but this is a short movie and super interesting. I like the way it is shot except for when they stop redacting The Intercept and it looks all crazy. Kinda makes that part seem fake. I definitely never want to be interviewed by the FBI and certainly will look differently at people wearing tactical belts. I thought they were dads on vacation but it turns out they're all cops. Every one is so nice but scary all at the same time.
