The Ides of March

BluRay Authority
28 January 2012
  • Excerpt: For those that don’t know, The Ides of March is a phrase that goes back a couple thousand years. It was uttered by a soothsayer to warn Julias Caesar of his impending death. “Ides” means middle and the middle of March was the 15th. That’s when Caesar was killed. Ok, that’s your history lesson for today. Now onto politics. First and foremost, I’m a horrible American in that I’ve never voted.

The Ides of March (Blu-ray Review)

25 January 2012
  • Conclusion: This movie was marketed as being a taut thriller which it really isn’t since this kind of narrative has been done many times before, but it is a smart look at politics – both in front of the camera and behind it.  The movie’s cynical and fairly bleak ending may turn off some viewers but it’s true to this day and age’s political world where ideals, people, and morals are tossed aside for any chance of victory.

Ides of March Review

DoBlu
18 January 2012
  • Excerpt: There are two ways to look at Ides of March before those closing credits begin their spree of thanks. A slow, methodical zoom on Ryan Gosling leaves doubt during a live TV interview, either insinuating that background political corruption games have ruined him, or he’s standing firm behind his candidate for personal reasons.

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: Subtle yet searing, 'The Ides of March' takes us behind the curtain of the political stage, and lays bare the machinations that often define a run for office. A first-rate ensemble cast infuses this taut tale with a heady combination of elegance and grit, while a meaty script and firm direction steer the film to its affecting climax.

  • Conclusion: George Clooney takes us deep into the shark-infested waters of political election campaigns in the smart and intriguing The Ides of March . This dialogue-driven drama may feel like a more cinematic, R-rated cousin to "The West Wing", but that's still enough to rank it among last year's best films. The Blu-ray's feature presentation is just about perfect and though the bonus features are a bit underwhelming, the movie is well worth seeing.

The Ides of March (2011)

  • Conclusion: The Ides of March is a superb movie about the politics of politics in the tradition of Primary Colors , that a movie, too, about the unseen, inside world behind the sound bytes, news clips, and public fronts and appearances. But there's a deeper story, a true human drama, behind The Ides of March , a tale of lost innocence in a world with no room for such a trivial thing and equally naive beliefs.

The Ides of March Movie Review

  • Summary: This intense political thriller is another excellent show of Clooneyism. This time, though, it's not Clooney the actor that really shines. It's Clooney the screenwriter and Clooney the director.

The Ides of March

Cinema Blend
7 October 2011
  • Excerpt: At first The Ides of March seems like one of those self-indulgent political movies in which a group of left-leaning screenwriters get together and live out their fantasies of beating the Republicans at their own game, saving the country in the process. It could have been that movie. It almost is that movie, with George Clooney playing the perfect, principled candidate who says all the right things. In fact, early on it is that movie.

The Ides Of March

AV Club
6 October 2011
  • Excerpt: The political drama The Ides Of March — director/co-writer/star George Clooney adaptation of Beau Willimon’s play Farragut North —isn’t The Candidate ; more like The Campaign Manager . The film version stars Ryan Gosling as an idealistic political consultant who believes he’s found a real “change candidate” (Clooney), but soon discovers that even doing what’s right in politics requires so much compromise that it’s impossible to stay ethically pure.
