A veteran struggles in bringing up his adolescent daughter apart from society. Excellent, sober, and compassionate drama about mental illness, personal freedom and obligation to others. Nothing wasted from first to last frame. Highly recommended.
A ruthless Washington lobbyist goes against the pro-gun lobby. Initially intriguing though ultimately glib dramatic thriller with good performances and a sense of seriousness undone by an unbelievable third act.
The Washington Post battles to source and then publish revelations about the Vietnam War. Effective journalistic thriller, which works as a prequel to All The President’s Men and as a contemporary allegory. Good performances all round, especially from Streep.
A nerdy FBI agent goes undercover to thwart a fascist domestic terrorism plot. Standard will-he-get-found-out scenes and some clumsy storytelling mar this otherwise proficient thriller, which takes some time to explore a spectrum of neo-Nazi subcultures.
