’22 July’ captures horror of extremism, and hope in its aftermath

Paul Greengrass’ gritty, live-wire directing style is something of a trademark, and it’s put to efficient use in “22 July,” a layered, dense look at the savage terrorist attack that rocked Norway on that date in 2011. Telling the story from multiple angles, Greengrass’ spare, sobering film — premiering simultaneously in select theaters and on Netflix — seeks and mostly succeeds in highlighting extremism while finding humanity and resolve within the grief and chaos.
