Closed Circuit is an old-fashioned slow burn British legal thriller that applies traditional storytelling techniques with modern technology and the legal maze created to deal with terrorism – and especially the laws that allow evidence deemed perilously dangerous to national security to be withheld from both the defense team and the defendant.
When you think of the name Joe Wright, you think of period pieces like Atonement and Pride & Prejudice – not action flicks that twist fairytale themes into something the Brothers Grimm would approve of. You certainly wouldn’t expect him to do it so well, either, but Hanna is an absorbing, hugely entertaining movie.
While the political and historical ramifications are alluded to at end of the film, The Other Boleyn Girl is a lushly drawn period piece about two girls who are pimped out to the King of England by their father and uncle.
