Like, a movie about how the media and the FBI are fucked and ruined an innocent person's life? Directed by a hardcore right winger? It's a good story and all, but... is it what we need?

That's all Clint makes right now though. The "tortured" white guy hero.

Eastwood's a shithead, but I don't think it's ever a good time to stop saying true things in deference to the fucking FBI.

THAT'S the story to be told, then. It earned its "good reputation" while attacking Martin, Malcolm, and the Panthers.

if you have the right angle. particularly in pursuit of sensational storylines in the 24/7 news cycles, you can have people out there on some extreme bullshit.

(remembering the Iraq War, and the run up to it, for example. too many people forget that, while "never forgetting" 9/11)

it's just a problem now because you have Dolt 45 screaming about "fake news" and kicking reporters out of the room.

like the FBI, I really hate having to defend CNN, because of the above.

I also hear the complaints about them making up (possibly malicious) shit about a person who is dead. the response to that should be, this is a biopic, which means by rule, some things are going to be completely made up. Odious as it may be. It's not as if this film is presenting itself as a documentary of historical record. Let that colour your review.

Yes, I'm mad. Let's move on.

This is solid, but it's mostly carried by the actors. Especially Paul Walter Hauser. He should be nominated.

Olivia Wilde's character is written atrociously. Wait till you see that problematic shit.

But overall, very solid for someone who hasn't done something solid in a long time.

dude clearly wanted to make journalists look slimey as hell.

i really do wonder if clint was genuinely interested in this story then just emphasized his agenda items within it.

or if he already had an agenda in search of a movie to push it through.

cuz its a good story/movie on its own without the tampering.

is him in a casket. Fuck that cracker. I'll never forgive him for that Obama shit.

He couldn't make a movie great enough even if he wasn't a shell of his former self as a filmmaker.

He can get all the way fucked and I don't have respect for actor's clamoring to participate in his bullshit.

where "libs" became aware it was too shitty to support and conservatives didn't know they could see it to own the libs.

it's probably just too boring of a topic to justify the movie without a real star playing Jewell himself, andthe 30 for 30 was the right approach

kathy bates is such a great actress.

rockwell does his thing as usual. hamm plays hamm.

jewell was good but frustrating as a character.

Olivia Wilde had to go on twitter and do damage control because the reporter she was playing is not only dead, but didnt do ANY of that shit Wilde's character did in the movie.
