Fast and rough and terribly... methodical about it, they were. I remember thinking, ‘They’ve taken everything.’

Patient Description:

Delightfully miserable and intellectually sober, the dialogues of war trapped journalists made a convincing horror story. It's been awhile since I've been so interested in a script's context. The offstage action with the hostage videos heinously charged the scene. I hate and love the cold blooded, sordid, and awkward feelings that modern terrorism brings. The only thing that irked me was the consistent, juvenile blue wording. The drama prevails, however, to surpass these blips.
