​​THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

TRUE STORY (2015)


I am SO far behind in posting these that we're gonna do a few tonight. #76was a 2015 dud called True Story which on the surface looked intriguing, with Jonah Hill as a disgraced NY Times reporter named Mike Finkel. He is dismissed for taking some journalistic liberties. Meanwhile James Franco has murdered his wife and three children and is hiding in Mexico pretending to be Mike Finkel. He is caught, and the film focuses on the relationship that builds between the two as Finkel wants to now write a book about Franco, seeing it as his road back. Yeah sounds good but believe me it is dull, dry and not very cinematic at all.
