As a pure period piece Quiz Show delivers beautifully, but Redford's foursquare, documentary-like approach, however artful, unspools a story with about as much drama as a game show itself.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

The screenplay, by former Washington Post film critic Paul Attanasio, is smart, subtle and ruthless.

With the possible exception of The Shawshank Redemption, Quiz Show has the best script of any film I have seen this year.

...Redford manages to build quite a snowball of drama in all of this, full of heroes and antiheroes...
