Josh is exactly correct about Sully. The fake tension of the investigation was basically an exercise to demonize government bureaucrats.
I am surprised neither of you mentioned the bizarre editing and structure. The time jumps added nothing and seemed there only to mask the paper thin narrative.
This article from slate really nails it http://www.slate.com/articles/arts/culturebox/2016/09/sully_is_the_perfect_fantasy_for_the_post_fact_era_of_the_brexit_and_trump.html
I don't think I'm being political when I say I'm not going to get too worked up about a movie making bureaucrats look bad. In this specific case, as I said on the show, I think it's a little more nuanced than that.
I didn't mention the "bizarre" editing and structure because the adjective I'd use for it would be something more like "effective."
