While trashy films seem to come off the Hollywood assembly line faster than mass produced cars, it is odd to see a sincere and fact based movie sharing the big screen with zombies and dragons.
"Fair Game" is overly ambitious, but I cannot fault it for trying to fill the theater with elements we rarely experience - intelligence and genuine emotion.
I cannot think of a film since "All the President's Men," which tried to tell a true story and not indulge in outlandish theatrics.
This film really sticks to basic facts and tells a complex story in a concise and compelling manner. It is not a pleasant film to watch, it has no winner to celebrate.
