Behold, the most compelling motion picture I have seen this 2016!
It is not computers or telephones. It is exactly what those gadgets, cool as they may be, lack. A human heart.
That this film manages to burrow deep into the motivations, desires and psyche of a man many hail as one of the planet’s greatest, in a little over two hours is absolutely amazing. Our hearts, our minds! That is what makes a film compelling. The ability to recognize our fellow man up on the screen and empathize, and laugh in recognition and cry in regret. This movie, from start to finish, has everything that makes cinema not just a gimmick, but an art form.
