Kill the Messenger (2014)

Michael Cuesta directs Jeremy Renner, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Oliver Platt in this true story conspiracy thriller about the journalist, Gary Webb, who uncovered the links between the Contras, the Cartels and the CIA.

An impressively deep cast of modern genre faces brings to life this robust paranoid thriller / biopic. The first half where Renner’s Webb is chasing the story is more gripping than the second half where his reputation is attacked from all sides. Well worth a watch.
