The Road to Guantanamo
- 95 min
- Directed by: Michael Winterbottom
- Cast: Riz Ahmed, Farhad Harun, Arfan Usman
Winterbottom and writer Mat Whitecross' depressing, worrying and defiantly one-sided film is structured around the testimonials of Asif, Shafiq and Ruhal, the so-called Tipton Three who, in 2002, found themselves early guests of the newly-appointed torture chambers of the Cuban army base.Like his previous flirtation with mild agit prop (2002's 'In This World'), there is lyricism and humour here and a whole lot more. 'The Road to Guantánamo' is edifying for sure, but it is also surreal, angry and imbued with a sense of nightmarish logic that few filmmakers have the ability to muster.
