'A Mighty Heart' , otherwise known as 'cinema verite sans the novelty', would have been a rather engrossing little television film if it had not been beleaguered by terrible cinematography (it is barely a notch above Lars von Trier's appalling Dogme 95 films in this respect), primitive editing, bland acting, and a screenplay with a severe lack of cohesion.

Angelina Jolie is incredible! in this slow paced but well told story.

Aside from the discrepancy that ANGELINA JOLIE is white, and the real MARIANE PEARL is bi-racial, the whole movie performed quite well. Movies of this genre (War/Drama) with a documentary element are quite difficult to put together. Professional critics gave it an average 74% review mark, although one colleague close to DANIEL PEARL expressed utter dismay. By and large, I believe that the movie was successful (definitely not so much financially) in trying to maintain the intricacies of cultures, people-group mentalities and other factions operating within the overall problem, that help shed light to complexities of international terrorism crises such as this.
