Critic Reviews for Genius On Hold
Marquette, aided by Frank Langella's precise narration, has crafted an engrossing and disturbing tribute.
This promisingly tragic tale is sunk by cartloads of context and an overbearing, slanted narration.
A far-reaching narrative of government venality and big-business greed that's all mapped succinctly but substantively.
A movie that underscores that the winners and losers of some battles of capitalism aren't always confined to a single generation; its shadows are long ones.
A provocative side trip into Americana, as fascinating as it is tendentious.
Audience Reviews for Genius On Hold
Terrible. Heavy-handed. It tried to land a ridiculous broadside against capitalism using a monopolistic Ma Bell and a dysfunctional family as its contenders. There was no corroboration; only talking heads. The Kennedys, AT&T, technology, the Mob, blacklisting, deregulation, thievery, penology...I think the filmmakers set a record in the number of incoherent stories told in 90 minutes. How on earth this 12th grade history class project got 80% is beyond me.Frank Langella should file suit against the filmmakers for negatively affecting his future income as a voiceover.
Interesting subjects, shitty execution. How this gets release at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema for a minute let alone a week is beyond me. Youtube would be more sufficient.
