This week's reviewed movie is:
The Ides of March




Gene the Barber

Gordie the Barber



The Ides of March is a political thriller/ drama that has something for almost everyone.

Terrible secrets are uncovered when you mix sex, the fickle nature of fate, and cell phones.

George Clooney directs, co-writes, and stars as a democratic presidential candidate.

This film takes a few sharp turns -- keeping you glued to your seat from start to finish.

The main message is that most polititians will let you down, and not everything is always as it looks.

The Ides of March is a cautionary tale of corrupt politics.

Full of thoughtful idealism and contemporary cynicism, its fine ensemble cast shows us loyalty, betrayal, and revenge during the Ohio Democratic primary.

Beautifully written, deftly directed with stunning performances, it proves all's fair in love and politics.

...and you Brutus?

The film is based on the off-Broadway play by Beau Willimon, who worked in political campaigns.

This movie is part morality and part thriller.

It offers an unflattering look inside the workings of a presidential campaign, exploring how far people will go in order to attain power, even at the price of everything they say they hold dear.

The picture is one of the most honest mainstream, forceful stories about American politics ever to be committed to screen.
