You're right that I missed the actual point of the controversy, after having a quick convo about it on twitter, and glancing through the NY Book Review article, it felt like the point was that people didn't believe torture was used. So I jumped on that. Thanks for clearing that up Quentin, I'll edit my review as well.
I'm thankful that I didn't miss the point so completely to make me jump fences. The film doesn't depict that they got the information through torture. The biggest thing everyone seems to be crying about is that Zerk Dark Thirty "advocates the use torture" which is pretty ridiculous to me. They show that torture was used in the film, but the tortured person didn't break
Everyone's jumping up and waving their hands in protest for nothing.
