  • 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.

Nice try, Guv.

  • Summary: Classy, intelligent, and bereft of even a single real surprise - except, perhaps, that someone as outspoken as Mr. Clooney should produce such a politically tame "political thriller" (hedging his bets on how the average American viewers' own politics might taint their interpretation of the movie, perhaps?).

  • 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.

  • 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.

A topical taut political thriller

  • 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.

The Ides of March, April, May & June

  • Summary: I really dont have much to say about it, just a normal look into politics and the 'behind the scenes' stuff that could go on in a election race. The acting from both Ryan Gosling and of cos George Clooney was superb. Not really my thing, but I still found it a good watch. Like some other films reecently, it appeared to be about the choices we make and the results. Genre : drama, polictical 3/5 : It was a good flick, and thought it was good value.

Curious George

  • Summary: This is an old-fashioned 1950s behind-the-scenes political thriller in which Clooney again doffs his director's hat to films such as Otto Preminger's "Advise & Consent" or Sidney Lumet's political cold war thriller, "Fail-Safe." And if you like that kind of theatrical, blow-by-blow, wordy political theatre-play-on-film you'll love this. This is the Clooney of "Goodnight, and Good Luck" rather than "Oceans 11.
