What I liked about this movie is that it was not character driven. I couldn’t really tell you about any of these people, and that takes absolutely nothing away from it. This is a movie that uses plot and narration to explain a complicated and important sequence of events. It is history. And it is very well done. I would like to see more movies operate in this mode.
ps–Clooney, Soderbergh, Affleck, and to a lesser extent, Damon are beginning to look like a school of American political cinema.
