Bombshell

Bombshell ★★★

It makes sense the script is from the same writer as The Big Short since it was clearly going for that kind of humor (one I'm not personally a fan of). What exacerbates this is the flat directing style that is basically utilitarian and unimaginative. Even the really good scenes are more from writing and performances, which are all great by the way. Margot Robbie really brings it for a character that was a composite of multiple women. Charlize Theron does well too for a character that doesn't really account for what a terrible woman Megyn Kelly was and still is. Nicole Kidman gets strangely kid of sidelined. A well-produced documentary could have told this story better, with the real women telling their stories and with someone who doesn't mind holding them accountable for their individual actions.
