The Ides of March Reviews
When we see what we least expect when it's leverage we seek. When we see that we can't be easily blackmailed. When we need to see to believe when some people play it close to the chest to give in. When what we dont see behind closed doors can shift powers another way to see those fall and another rise and everything we campaign for is harder to achieve when we are pleasing others with hidden agendas and leverage to serve their needs. When we see things clearer then others to know it's part of the game. When we see some people are replaceable and others are not, when we all serve a purpose and want to be seen in a light that gives us power and allows us to climb higher and higher where the view is much better and we can't help but get more and more of. When those behind the camera can be seen when the brains of the campaign now has a face.
Som bekant ger jag inte mycket för den parlamentariska demokratin, men jag vet också att göra en sansad bedömning. Och som thriller? Nope, det här har vi sett förr, och dessutom mycket skickligare utfört.
The George Clooney Hollywood democrat liberal fantasy about a pro abortion anti death penalty pro environment anti war atheist Presidential candidate is leftist intellectual day dreaming of the highest virtue signalling order.
Secondly the rather tame script's realism, doesn't sit at all well with 2016. Though I doubt this hyper real serious drama would have countenanced Trump any more than George's Marvellous liberal fantasy medicine candidate was in any way real....as it turns out it was even more unrealistic!
An extremely intriguing and well directed movie, definetely one of my favourite Political thrillers.
Good job George!
