It sounds like they maybe thought that the movie could ride on Meryl Streep’s coattails, instead of expanding on the legitimate issues you brought up. That’s too bad (though I suppose that’s typical of biopics). It screamed “Oscar Bait” to me, TBH.
Yeah, I think that’s what happened. And it is typical of biopics, I agree—at least, it’s a trapping that a lot of biopics fall into. Biopics are hard to make well, man. You’ve got a limited range of what you can present, you always have more information and more characters than you can include, and you’re going to end up pissing off either the subject’s fans or their detractors (or even both). And then you have to find the right person to play the characters, and…well, there’s just a whole of rigmarole. I’m glad I’m not a filmmaker.
AGAIN? SERIOUSLY?! Jesus Christ, people.
I don’t even mind it so much when it’s a movie review, because that’s a personal opinion, and if they really like the photo but don’t want to reblog the opinion, then that’s understandable. But most of the photos I use for the dialogue stuff are so…not worth reblogging, lol. I just don’t understand.
I remember reading excerpts of this in English class in high school, and it was really engrossing and terrifying all at once.
I think that’s actually the most accurate description you can make of it. Like watching a car crash. The details are terrifying, but you can’t turn away.

Ahhhh, good idea, man!
Dude, I’m trying to finish a recap. Why do you do these things to me?
Okay, okay. Full disclosure: I’m a Soviet spy whose mission is to render you as unproductive as possible.
(Please say it is. Because I want to return to my family in the Urals before my village is covered entirely in snow and a gulag is built on top of it.)
