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.
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.
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.
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.
