There is a good film to be made about the drone op­er­a­tors who have, since the be­gin­ning of the war of ter­ror, rained death on the Mid­dle-East from the safety of bunkers in Ne­vada. This is not that film. The is­sues are all stated ex­plic­itly in a script that plays like a se­ries of di­dac­tic foot­notes for a much more in­ter­est­ing film. Ev­ery char­ac­ter rep­re­sents a “point of view”. Dis­em­bod­ied CIA voices put their own case. Don’t be­lieve a word. 15A cert, lim re­lease, 102 min
