The film is interesting but plays out like a greatest hits rather than deep character dive. I am still waiting for a great film on this complicated man. All the Way was far better.
I Live in Texas and the stories about LBJ come out in this movie.
Rob Reiner's satisfactory biographical political drama depicting America's 36th president Lyndon Baines Johnson pushing forward against political conflicts John Fitzgerald Kennedy's proposed Civil Rights Act of 1964 in the wake of his assassination is uplifted by Woody Harrelson's masterful performance and Joey Hartstone's engrossing writing.
In a TV-film way, it shows an ambitious politician which seems to change after murder of the president; what I am not sure if he continued being the same ambitious politician after all.
It is not as bad as the reviews though whoever did the makeup should have been fired.
Straight and professionally made, but a bit adulatory biopic focussed on LBJ's political transition as John F. Kennedy's Vice President and successor; it could have been so much more, although it is indeed a treat to watch Woody Harrelson give this politician some life.
STRENGTHS: Strong performances all around and snappy writing. I't doesn't do anything crazy inventive with the camera work, but not exactly bad. some interesting shots. It tries much less than vice at comedy yet still turns out funnier.
WEAKNESSES: Didn't focus on many more contr
Rob Reiner returns to the White House's politics to reflect the story of reluctant presidency, successfully relying on Harrelson's beneficially charismatic, transformative performance with decent makeup for a fulfilled role. Although, the story demonstrates a timely forgotten meaning and delivers minimal punches, it couldn't help but be bothered on the questionable length of focus of maintaining the accuracy of the main figures' accurate role besides the basic necessary facts towards the validated worthiness of telling the story with little presentation.

Can't teach an old dog new tricks? LBJ really had a change of heart about racial rights...Woody plays him well.
underrated, Woody gives a good performance and nice storyline
