    Not too subtle; I haven't got much to add to GrooveRemote's comment. Willie Stark is a superbly acted figure, editing really looked off sometimes. 3 years 4 months ago

    How true even today. Scarface-esque politics jam. 4 years 5 months ago

    Obsessed with the novel, hopefully this lives up. Wonder how big of a character Jack is compared to Willy in this film. 11 years 1 month ago
