Last week I came down pretty hard on the new Mark Wahlberg thriller Contraband on the basis of some graphic scenes of women and children in danger. I probably wouldn’t have been as hostile towards these scenes if I hadn’t also recently watched Beneath the Blindfold, a recent documentary about torture victims. That movie depicts the struggle of victims to readjust to normal life after undergoing unspeakable trauma. It’s a powerful experience and a reminder of how many movies fail to consider the long-term effects of torture (it screens again tomorrow at the Gene Siskel Film Center).
