This is the incredible invisible film.
It’s as though acknowledging it means we have to admit we let our politicians, their cronies and yes men run our countries into the ground and we should do something.
A dark comedy with a magnificent cast to match.
Amazing work by:
Dustin Hoffman, Robert De Niro, Anne Heche, Denis Leary, Willie Nelson, Andrea Martin, Kirsten Dunst, William H. Macy, John Michael Higgins, Suzie Plakson, Woody Harrelson, Michael Belson,Suzanne Cryer, Jason Cottle, David Koechner, Craig T. Nelson (uncredited).
Directed by Barry Levinson.
Produced by Barry Levinson and Robert De Niro. Screenplay by Hilary Henkin, David Mamet and based on ‘AmericanHero’ by Larry Beinhart.
This is about how politicians and their spin doctors distract the electorate from scandals, poor performance, and sometimes general incompetence.
It’s rather macabre and quite disturbing and sadly, these sorts of things happen…
