Reality (2023) review:about government secrecy and basic human rights

Reality (2023) skillfully builds tension, slowly unraveling events in reverse chronological order. The talented cast of Sydney Sweeney, Josh Hamilton, and Marchánt Davis deliver outstanding performances that are a delight to watch. If you appreciate good acting, this movie is a must-see!

The film is expertly crafted, using authentic FBI interview tapes to tell its story. With only three main characters, the movie’s pace is driven by their interactions, which keep you engaged throughout the entire runtime. I was so engrossed in the story that I didn’t even realize an hour had passed. The tension builds steadily, leading to a captivating and suspenseful finale.

The film raises questions about government secrecy and the violation of basic human rights. It sheds light on the unfortunate reality of innocent individuals being falsely accused and imprisoned in the US, which has the highest incarceration rate in the world.

While the movie may not be suitable for those seeking action-packed violence, I found it to be an enigmatic and captivating experience. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a thought-provoking and engaging film.
