Clooney for President.

  • Excerpt: The Ides of March plays like a real motive of director and star George Clooney's personal outing of the Obama administration with some snappy dialog on how America can get strong again by removing ourselves from area's that we need not be. But in reality this is a work of fiction or is it. This is a very good character driven piece with fine performances by all involved. Clooney knows how to surround himself with respectable performers who shine and make him shine.

"It matters what you did. It matters what you didn't do."

  • Excerpt: During the Ohio leg of a campaign to determine who will become the Democractic party's next presidential candidate, an adept but somewhat idealistic junior campaign manager loses his innocence - and faces tough choices - when he discovers that the men he works for are as unscrupulous and corruptible as the people in the opposition's camp. Although it was a little light on overall plot, this was a slick and reasonably-entertaining political drama.

A Fine Cast Keeps Things Interesting...

Zeiram, blu-ray.com
20 January 2012
  • Excerpt: George Clooney's "The Ides of March" works best as an extension of its good script. The story however, is an entirely different matter. Part didactic, cynical and sneakily powerful; it’s like the funny guy in the room who has told one too many good jokes. The wardrobe is nice and the laughter in the auditorium is riveting but the rocket never quite gets off the ground. We grow weary of this and want to go home (though we are never bored or unhappy).

  • Summary: A fantastic little film from George Clooney. Ryan Gosling is fantastic as are the rest of the supporting cast. Entertainment One's Blu-ray sports a fine transfer and a nice array of extras. Well worth picking up!

  • Conclusion: George Clooney's latest starring/directing combo is another quality drama from an actor and director who knows what he wants to do with his films and knows how to make it entertaining at the same time.

A topical taut political thriller

Weds_Loafers, Flicks
10 February 2012
  • Summary: After many months of flagging confidence in today's US film industry's ability to make a good movie, this one restored our perception. This is the story of a step on the path to the presidency of the United States. It centres on an intense Democratic Party primary in Ohio where campaign press secretary (Ryan Gosling) by chance learns of the possibility of a scandal that will ruin his candidate's (George Clooney) chance of success.

Extract from theaterofthecommonman.com

TheaterofCommon, Flicks
10 February 2012
  • Summary: Extact from theaterofthecommonman.com I'm a sucker for political melodrama and The Ides of March is exactly that. With what appears to be a broad examination of backroom electioneering, the film, whether intentional or not holds a mirror up to the on-going credibility issues faced by the US Congress and Senate.

Gosling becomes a Gander.

filmlover, Flicks
10 February 2012
  • Summary: This is a grown up flick about political power players in which Ryan Gosling outshines everyone as he struggles to find a balance between his morals and his need to succeed. Outstanding performance, as always, by Philip Seymour Hoffman as his mentor and nemesis. As other reviewers have noted there is nothing new about this story and it barely qualifies as a thriller but George Clooneys direction makes for a gripping story.
