The Ides Of March (2011)

Film# 336

The Ides of March (2011). 

I didn't find it to be as fantastic as many people did but I still liked it. It's a very quiet film. I found the first half to be rather slow and contain a lot of political talk that had me slightly confused but the twists in the second half made the films pacing get better. I also found it rather anti-climatic and the plot to be rather thin. All the performances were good and the direction was smooth and atmospheric. I kind of expected more but I guess Clooney is still learning. Overall, it's a good, small, political thriller.
