Critic Reviews for Confirmation
Save for a few scenes that feel like overkill just to give us a little bit more intrigue and suspense, Confirmation feels true to the spirit of the events, which were bizarre, unsettling - and undeniably entertaining.
The case for Anita Hill -- and all the unknown Anita Hills -- is argued persuasively in "Confirmation," a dutiful, solidly entertaining drama that effectively stirs the viewer's righteous indignation.
In revisiting the hearing 25 years after it happened, Confirmation offers a chance to consider its impact, and what it lacks in stylistic verve, it makes up for with methodical storytelling.
Yet despite its tantalizing subject matter, Confirmation is surprisingly flat and uninspired, in every way that it shouldn't be in 2016.
A well-made movie about a sensational moment in history that aims for the detached authority of a news report.
