    While it would easy to pick on the Eastwoodian qualities and politics of this film (a quasi-Jesus figure, pro-military and patriotic service), the film succeeds at humanizing Sully so well (no small part thanks to Hanks and Aaron Eckhart's glorious moustache) that it's hard not to enjoy the film for its humanity.

    Moreover, there are fascinating points in the film that discuss the role the media plays in dehumanizing people, mental health, speculation's part in forming media narrative (and the media's role in history) and ultimately the self-doubt that can creep into anyone's head when they're told something that goes against their own experience and self-confidence.

    Remarkably, the film's crash sequences are tense every single time despite how many times we tell ourselves that we know how it ends. That reflection of the audience's self-doubt to that of the character is a very satisfying touch.

    Sully is the story of standing up for yourself in the face of scrutiny when you know you're right, and it's hard not to cheer for that.

    Well directed and acted straightforward true life drama, perhaps better suited for TV (there isn't a whole lot of story) but very engaging. Don't watch before taking an airplane trip :-) 9 months 1 week ago
