Okay, we get it, can you stop hitting me over the head now? It’s worth seeing for the performances alone, Christian Bale is top notch. That scene near the middle when the credits rolled had me laughing. Regardless of your political views, this is a bit heavy handed. The direction is perplexing and at times totally tone deaf, it’s like he was pulling back from the farce he was creating and trying to be serious, the end result is a somewhat muddled mess with a long runtime that’s barely held together by Bales multiple chins.
