There is nothing more shocking and revealing than the truth. Scott Z. Burn‘s The Report is based on the true story of Daniel Jones’ investigation into the infamous Torture Report that followed after the September 11 attacks. The film takes a deep dive to uncover the heinous torture crimes committed by the CIA, and how they and the White House tried to cover it all up. While it is a slow and tedious political thriller, it is something that is filled with fast-paced dialogue, outstanding performances from Adam Driver and Annette Benning, and shocking revelations that will surely evoke anger and frustration.

Above all, The Report highlights the absolute necessity for investigative reporting. My full review here below.

Zach Galifianakis‘s Between Two Ferns is his hilarious take on celebrity talk shows that take place on public access television. He’s had stars like Brad Pitt, President Barack Obama, Natalie Portman, Bradley Cooper, Will Ferrell, and Hillary Clinton on his show.

Now it’s time for one of Funny or Die’s funniest bits to go from short video format to a Netflix film. And rather than make that bit with a cinematic feel, there will be an actual narrative woven into it. The stakes are high after one of the celebrities Galifianakis is interviewing is accidentally killed, forcing executives to axe the show. That is, unless, he can produce ten successful episodes before the deadline. Forced to go on the road, the interviewer will do what it takes to save it and restore his reputation. Netflix has released an official trailer for the film, which you can check out below.
