Hollywoodland

I liked Hollwoodland, but I wanted to like it more. The George Reeves part with Ben Affleck was very good, but it was only about 40% of the movie. And the Adrien Brody part was okay, but it just felt like an intrusion on a more interesting movie. Brody had his own plot, but it wasn't very compelling. It might have been more compelling if I hadn't been tapping my foot impatiently, but I doubt it. So what you're left with is a mystery with no resolution at all. Huh.

Agreed -- The Brody parts felt forced so that the filmmakers could justify this guy narrating. One thing I did like was the lack of "mugging" for the camera that Affleck tends to do in most of his roles...
