Peter Berg United States, 2018

TheCentralRuhr's rating of the film Mile 22

The stochastic editing pattern of the set-pieces are enlarged to the formal structure of the film itself. Ruthlessly shifting between no less than 4 separate locations at certain points while jumping time-frames backward/forward. Its politics are similarly muddled beyond comprehension, aimed at jingoistic conservative fantasy but ultimately self-defeating and perhaps (lamely) self-critical. At best, bemusing.
