"Maybe the experience is different if you're American and/or you have no prior knowledge of what was going on in Gitmo (we been knew), but this movie -- while not too bad -- was not as good as it could have been. The script takes middle-of-the-road approach and never really goes for the jugular. Sure, we can call the onscreen depictions of torture "brave" but it's not like it is the first movie to do so. The tone was confusing, there was a lot of jokes for a story that's about inhumane torture. I don't know what function the dream scenes were supposed to perform in the movie, some of them were disorienting, which I suppose is intentional to demonstrate Mo's mental state, but I wonder if they were necessary at all. The acting was great though, I have no misgivings about the acting. I've always liked Tahar Rahim, but the poor guy is really typecast in America, in Europe they trust him with roles that have nothing to do with his background, because he's just that good."

"A good but not great film. It's well made and the acting is good but it is a little sloppy in places. Still, the subject matter gives it power, as once again we are reminded of the terrible injustices that happen at Guantanamo Bay. The injustices of American politics are also brought to light, although America isn't the only country guilty of scapegoating innocents, of course. Thank goodness then for those that fight on the side of all that is right, honourable and just."

"Fantastic movie that demonstrates just how cruel and awful Gitmo is. It is a damn embarrassment that Bush, Obama, and Trump have used that facility to torture people in horrific and inhumane ways, with none of them going to shut it down. I sincerely hope Biden will do the right thing, but I won't hold my breath. The end credits roll detailing the aftermath of Mohamedou's struggle was just heartbreaking. This was great acting all around, and I would've never recognized Doctor Strange."

"_The Mauritanian_ is a film with a good story whose release timing was a bit unfortunate. Many of the most powerful moments of the film don't carry the weight that they ought to simply because most people now accept that Americans committed crimes against humanity during and after "The War on Terror." That being said, the performance of Rahim is excellent, while both Foster and Cumberbatch put in good performances as well. In addition, I appreciate the focus on Ould Slahi's perspective in the story, though I think they could have gone even deeper into his story. As an alternative, I preferred _The Report_ (2019) which delved more deeply into the American psyche and the efforts to uncover American use of torture during the "War on Terror.""

Based on the New York Times best-selling memoir “Guantánamo Diary” by Mohamedou Ould Slahi, “The Mauritanian” tells the true story of a man who spent 14 years of his life imprisoned without charges at the notorious United States military detention facility. The film is a standard legal dram More
