    Richard Jewell

    ★★½

    At the tender age of 89, avowed libertarian Clint Eastwood approaches anarcho-libertarianism, which makes this one of the dumbest films of his filmography.

Too bad there probably isn’t enough time for Eastwood the artist to abandon the depth of his inculcation in liberal hegemonic ideology. For it is in the stubborn confrontation with the politically correct that recent Eastwood directed films find a liveliness. But it is honestly a case of the pot calling the kettle black, and even navel-gazing, that has already worn thin.

    Ferrara’s most remarkable film because of its incompleteness, which due to the nature of the medium (in dissolves, cuts, ellipses), is a totality by omission.

    I saw Pompeii to have a laugh at vulgar auteurists. But, my God, I didn't laugh. I saw a great deal that was strange, even stupid. But I also saw CGI that was delicate, almost too sensitive. A city washed through by the ocean and ravaged by fireballs. Impossible details. The earth fissured into catacombs. I felt as though I touched and heard the panic of doomed lives struggling with their fate. No sound came from their breasts as they embraced alone when the fire engulfed them. My God, I didn't laugh.
