Bulworth

Critics Consensus

Star and director Beatty's ambitious take on race and politics in 20th-century America isn't perfect, but manages to provide more than its share of thought-provoking laughs.

Movie Info

Jay Bulworth (Warren Beatty), a financially ruined senator, is now disillusioned with politics. The forlorn statesman orders a contract killing -- the target himself -- so his family will be able to collect a fortune from his insurance policy. Facing imminent death, a devil-may-care Bulworth speaks his mind in public, forsaking platitudes for honest but controversial observations. But when he falls in love with a hip young woman (Halle Berry), Bulworth urgently rethinks his impending murder.

    Pretty run of the mill crap. I think Beatty was going for a big message and instead he just embarrasses himself. The whole Beatty-Halle Berry romance seems contrived and a bit gross. Bulworth whimpers while he thinks he is roaring.

    A bit too broadly played by Warren Beatty in the main, this satire isn't massively subtle but does have - clearly - very serious points to make, with some surprising poignancy in later stages. Excellent ensemble cast.

    Intelligently written, consistently funny, perfect acting, always surprising and never for a second dull, Mr. Beatty has written and directed a farce of the highest quality that handles sociological problems better than most dramas. 'Bulworth' is a godsend from the Hollywood machine.

    A decent social/political satire.
