The movie is definitely not without its slant, but it doesn’t seek to be a “fair and balanced” look at such a powerful figure. It is part grounded biography, part wild political satire.
The visual aspects of the film manage to function as its best friend and also its worst enemy, at times.
Around here, the American Dream may be dead, but it isn’t done creating collateral damage.
Hostiles Written by Donald E. Stewart (manuscript) and Scott Cooper (screenplay) Directed by Scott Cooper
