Last Flag Flying

Last Flag Flying ★★★½

The best I've seen from Linklater since Boyhood. It features the natural dialogue of his Before series. Humorous but thoughtful. I loved Steve Carell and Bryan Cranston, and Laurence Fishburne is turning into James Earl Jones more and more every day. Simple story of a man taking his son home to be buried. It is not a cheerful tale, but will have you thinking about the lies that our government tells us to keep us feeling good and the lies we tell ourselves to keep on feeling good. It is a little bit long and drags in some places and there isn't much to say about the simple and unobtrusive camera work and natural lighting. If you get a chance to see it please do.
