Vice ★★

This is the terrible movie the White House deserves: vain, vile, and completely devoid of insight. 

It's ironic that a movie that looks down on the American electorate for thinking "the new Fast & the Furious movie looks lit" doesn't even work as good agitprop. You can watch them try to piece together a cohesive movie by splicing in YouTube clips of a lion that I swear you can see buffer onscreen.

Steeped in self-important posturing, you are expected to respect this movie just like you might respect it's antihero because he was "willing to do what needed to be done." But did we? The movie never really has an answer to this most basic question, both for it's subject and it's own existence as a film.
