Re: Movies Seen In 2013


57. The Butler (B)

A highly atypical film from director Lee Daniels, at times remarkably restrained (particularly in its central performance), though the enormous timespan covered by the film still leads to a lot of eras being summed up in really on-the-nose ways. The casting of the film is by times highly effective and strange. The whole story really would be better-served by a miniseries, but it's still a decent movie. The makeup used on the actors is superb; some of the best I've seen in recent years.
