A great underrated movie

13 years, 6 months ago at Sep 7 13:50
To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Back then, Tim Robbins was probably one of the most interesting actors at work (see also ‘Jacob's Ladder’, ‘The Player’, ‘Short Cuts’, ‘The Shawshank Redemption’) and it was during this prolific period that he decided to release his directing debut.

Movies the giraffe watched in 2017: March (55 movies items)

"First viewing - March 6th I've seen a fair amount of positive feedback on this film over the years, so I was curious to give it a look. It's a well-made film, but also kinda depressing in a way. It works as a behind-the-scenes look at how the campaign trail might go for someone like Mr. Roberts, as well as social commentary of what lengths some politicians will go to to win the power they desire. As such it's also difficult to get behind, because there are few characters in the film worth spend"
