    "Good Morning Night" avoids a Hollywood ending, which is admirable, but it's conclusion is so anti-climactic, some may pine for a little political thriller-know how.

  1. It has been called both detached and loaded, unfairly slanted as well as balanced by some of its critics--I can only testify that I found the film both troubling and absorbing over two separate viewings.
  2. The writer-director's inquiry into this tragedy makes for a moving and intelligent film, but the dark story never feels fully realized.
