    The Manchurian Candidate

    ★★★★

    I used to think this was pointless. Now I think it’s vital. One of the great films made during the George W. Bush administration. Relentlessly cynical about government, the military, ambition, and motherhood. Radically prescient about the way we perceive corporatism, political theater, mental illness, and rage-fueled paranoia stoked by power at the highest levels via media manipulation. Remarkable how this fatalistic script smashes together with Demme’s zooming, Boomer humanism. You wanna see why Barry Jenkins and Paul Thomas Anderson…

    ★★

    Smug, naive, and mediocre to boot. Denzel is, as always, good.
