Based on a true story, this is another film directed by Clint Eastwood. I had no info on it and was pleasantly surprised. Good character acting. I am guessing they juiced up a few characters like the lawyer and woman who broke the story to make the movie more interesting.
Available on disc through Netflix.
one is very good. I think the guy who played Jewell was very convincing with a heartfelt performance.
and, IMO, Sam Rockwell got slighted. It's appropriate to fry the FBI.
I have not seen Rockwell's performace. I thought Bates was convincing. The best performance was that of the actor who played Jewell IMO.
working in American films today....
I have not seen him do anything deserving that praise. Seems he is in just about every film these days. Hollywood has a history of doing that with actors.
I first saw him in a few comedies and I thought "this is where he belongs". I nearly fell out when he appeared in Star Wars and more serious films. He can do it but for me, his appearance always stands out as a slight distraction.
Every article I've read about him makes a huge deal about his Marine service. I wonder if Marines rate their comrades by their theater experience?
And yes, I've seen a bunch of films he appeared in...
Marriage Story, The Report, Logan Lucky, Inside Llewyn Davis, Silence, Paterson or While We're Young? If not, I would suggest that you check them out...Sam Rockwell IMO was absolutely robbed of an Emmy award. He MADE Fosse / Verdon what it was. Not that Michelle Williams didn't deserve to win..she was good too.
I have seen a few of his films. L. Lucky, Silence, Blackklansman, Star Wars. I have been underwhemlmed by those performances.
I would place a whole bunch of male actors still working way ahead of him.
Clint turned 90 this week!
to think, I knew him back when he was Rowdy Yates
maybe we'll get a few more films out of him before ...
well, anyway, I liked Play Misty For Me ...
good first effort, and a surprise coming from him I'd say
To err is human, to learn, divine
