“Ides” Reviews: Good But Not Great

I don’t like to hear any negative words against My Future Husband, Ryan Gosling, but I have to admit that I got a charge out of reading Tom Shone’s review of Gosling’s new George Clooney-directed movie, “The Ides of March,” which opened the Venice film festival today. In this round-up of the movie’s reviews, most of which are fairly kind, Shone wrote: “Whether you buy the rest of the movie will depend largely on whether you believe: a) the American public would elect an atheist to the white house; b) Cincinnati residents will ever forgive Clooney for portraying their city as a greying, washed-out dump and c) audiences want to see inspirational political candidates exposed as lying, immoral scumbags.”
