The war relies on spying, which includes breaking people's privacy, even when they are not aware of it.

Specifically toward the end. Water torture, many forms of restraint, gas-flame being used on someone's torso, electrocution. All are shown on screen in a montage, no audio. The production value is low enough and without audio you can maintain suspension of disbelief.

One is shown, briefly. There's even an intubated person. Do people really paid attention to the movie?

There's a shakey cam in several scenes, especially during movement/transition scenes, I don't know why people are voting "no"
