I almost stopped watching this movie about 1/3rd of it’s way into the plot. I am so glad I didn’t.
It’s not just a political drama. It’s about the defeat of transparency at the hands of virtues of a state. It shows how vulnerable and dispensable we are even in the world’s richest (republican) democracy.
Everyone in the movie has a role that is more or less justified. But the character that brazes a spear through your chest is that of Jack Lemmon’s. It’s a movie I won’t soon forget.
I rate this movie 4.7/5.0.
