    An excellent, intelligent flick with great acting by Kate that highlights the loss of democracy in the war-mongering U.S.

  1. Throughout it all, however, I couldn't escape the feeling that this movie belonged on television instead. It has the immediacy, but also the shallowness, of an extended TV episode. Talking heads proliferate and pontificate.

    It is a rock-solid entertainment, made by adults, starring adults, and intended for adults.
  3. Lurie hits closer to the bone here than he did in his ham-handed "The Contender" (2000).
