 This movie was excellent. It was perhaps the least pretencious film I've ever seen. Nowhere is the preaching of a director hellbent on delivering new audiences to an age-old message. Instead, it flows like a quasi-documentary. Audiences will gather what they want or can from it and that's it. I loved it. Americans everywhere should take notice. George Clooney might be incredibly handsome, but the mofo can direct.

 this has nothing to do with the movie (which looks awesome), but why have you stopped putting witty captions under the film stills? that was my favorite part of reading these reviews!!

 Yeah, good point. Those were funny as hell. Especially when you've seen the flick in question.

 Apparently after the test audiences saw the film, the producers got a lot of comments about how the guy playing McCarthey was overacting. I've been away from cinema for a few months, and when I come back it's to Good Night and Capote. What a grand season!

I, um, I hated the captions, for what it's worth. Glad to see them gone... for now.

 One must also point out that the musical performances in the movie, which are led by Diane Reeves, are also spectacular. Where the limited number of sets fails in portraying the era, Diane Reeves and the band comes into play. I wish this movie had won at least one oscar, then it would get more attention. Reporters of the world, unite and watch this one!
