'The Ambassador' Review

In a time of intense niche-marketing, particularly of lower budget films, it is quite refreshing to come away from a movie and think, “wait, what the hell did I just see?”
At its core 'The Ambassador' is, I think, a finger-pointing piece of first person journalism, but it's served-up in such an unusual way that is both enjoyable and vexing. The finger points, but it never wags, and that omission is what makes 'The Ambassador' both noteworthy and unsettling.
