The film is obviously a hard watch but I think director Kevin McDonald did a great job as did actors Tahar Rahim and Jodie Foster. Mohamadou Ould Slahi is an extraordinary person - such a prolonged brual experience would've completely broken most people. It's good that his story will be heard more widely and that Obama's part in his illegal detention is made explicit. Due to his broken promise not to close Guantanamo, how many lives were broken? There are 40 people still held there today.
