Movie Review: #Truth 2019
As a movie critic, I recently had the opportunity to watch the film #Truth, and I must say that it left quite an impression on me. Directed by James Vanderbilt, this political thriller is a retelling of the infamous Killian documents controversy that took place during George W. Bush’s presidency.
The plot follows Mary Mapes (portrayed brilliantly by Cate Blanchett), a producer for CBS News’ 60 Minutes investigative journalism program. Along with her team, she uncovers damning evidence about Bush’s military service during the Vietnam War. However, when questions arise about the authenticity of their sources, their careers and reputation are put under severe scrutiny.
The acting in #Truth is undoubtedly one of its strongest points. Blanchett delivers a powerful performance as Mapes who is determined to uncover what she believes will be the biggest scoop of her career. Robert Redford who plays Dan Rather brings gravitas and authority to his role as legendary news anchor.
Overall, director Vanderbilt manages to keep audiences on edge throughout most of this political thriller. The script itself keeps things moving at an excellent pace while maintaining cinematic clarity and momentum from start to finish.
However, there are areas where #Truth falls short creatively; Davidson’s score lacks the subtlety or emotional complexity needed for such a complex story portraying individuals under intense pressure due to outside forces beyond their control or understanding.This leaves viewers feeling like they’re watching something great unfold but missing certain nuances that could have taken it from good to great.
In conclusion, #Truth is an excellent movie that provides insight into how powerfully influential modern media can be but also highlights why careful verification standards need to be in place when presenting stories that can affect real lives.This film reminds us why objective reporting should always override sensationalism or personal gain.
If you’re in the mood for an intelligently crafted thriller with thought-provoking ideas about journalistic responsibility and integrity then give #Truth a watch – you won’t be disappointed!
