[8.00/10] Richard Jewell (2019)

Richard Jewell (2019)

Quick Review: Fictionalized or not, Eastwood's take on the bomb attack during the 1996 Olympics translates into a skillfully-crafted, evenly-paced and well-written film that effortlessly balances out drama, humor, wit, and sentiment, being quietly intense and consistently riveting throughout, and though all the cast do a brilliant job, it is Hauser's spot-on portray as the earnest hero accused of terrorism Richard, you can't help but root for and support in his struggle against both the media and FBI.

I'd heard it was outstanding. Eastwood has proven himself an outstanding director.

He has, indeed. I loved the film. To be honest, I thought it was better than at least half of the Best Picture nominees. It deserves more credit for sure.
