BRYAN CRANSTON IN TRUMBO
|year: 2015 cast: Bryan Cranston, Diane Lane, Louis CK, John Goodman, Helen Mirren, Dean O'Gorman|
The closing speech at the end, taking place in 1970 with his problems a decade behind, is heartfelt and well-delivered by the BREAKING BAD actor. But there's little difference in cadence and style than how Trumbo converses during the rest of the movie, which is, in itself, pretty much a collection of speeches and lectures: whether to colleagues, enemies, or family (the communist sandwich comparison to his daughter is downright embarrassing). And for a movie about a man who wrote such great dialogue, there should have been more interactive wordplay than just a lot of preaching to the choir: with the same old tune.
