A Mighty Heart (2007)

1 rating: 3.0
A movie directed by Michael Winterbottom

A Mighty Heartcomes at the murder of journalist Daniel Pearl with a de-glamorized intensity: it's not a melodrama about Pearl's kidnapping and killing at the hands of Islamic terrorists, but a near-documentary about the process of trying to find him. … see full wiki

Another great performance by Angelina Jolie

Rating:
+3
Angelina Jolie, like her husband, Brad Pitt, are great at picking a wide cast of great and original movie roles to fill their career. In this film, Ms. Jolie plays Marianne Pearl, the wife of NY Times reporter Daniel Pearl. Both husband and wife were journalists, and were staying in Pakistan after the 9/11 attacks investigating Islamic fundamentalism. The movie follows the trials of Marianne as her husband is kidnapped, and eventually killed by Al Queda affiliated terrorists. The kidnapping happens early in the movie, and most of the film focuses on the investigation of the crime by Pakistani and American authorities, along with flashbacks of the Pearls' marriage. The movie is filmed in the style of a Michael Mann thriller, along the lines of Collateral or Miami Vice, with a feel of a documentary. The acting is top-notch, with Jolie being the biggest name in the movie. The film's setting is authentic, as the poverty, pollution, traffic, noise, dust and utter chaos of South Asia is brought to life as the vivid setting of this crime drama.
