George Clooney | 109 mins | TV | 15 / R
George Clooney’s directorial debut is part biopic, part comedy, and part spy thriller.
It’s the last part that works best, but perhaps that’s just because I have a predilection for spy thrillers; that said, the filmmakers would seem to agree as, after a late appearance in the plot, it comes to dominate its climax. It’s also nicely shot, especially the excursions to Europe.
I would recommend it (though not quite as heartily as Clooney’s second film, the excellent Good Night, and Good Luck).
