Premium season has always seemed to me a real "feast" for loyal fans who have the opportunity to see a really good and strong films. Current year was interesting the fact that none films of the award season is not caused my negative emotions and like its. An unexpected exception was this film directed by Dan Gilroy.

The events of the filmmaker Dan Gilroy spin around an ambitious and brilliant lawyer Novel by John Steinbeck. Israel Esq., who is trying to do what would justice triumphed, and the judicial system of the United States of America ceased to be exclusively punitive. It would seem, in light of the fact that movies legal issues not so often appear on wide screens, and decent quality even more rarely, this film directed by Dan Gilroy had all the chance that would be a great representative of the genre. However, this is not happened.

"Roman Israel, Esq." belongs to the category movies, which the entire screen time that Yes it but all creates the impression of treading on one place. So as declared by the founders of the Central story arc, nor the struggle of the main character from their internal "demons" is not find it nor is worthy of disclosure on the screen. Hence, no wonder almost most of the screen time, the picture seems totally pointless and maybe even shallow.

After a sumptuous in all respects, "Stringer", the new directorial work Dan Gilroy certainly caused a very curious and genuine interest. However, the first calls of alarm sounded after the film festival in Toronto. When the film was accepted very cool and has been rewired for more attractive to the audience. However, this picture does not help.

The Director of this tape is Dan Gilroy took a totally empty film, which is constantly something going on, but behind all this is not there is no any emotional filling or speakers or anything at all. Great effort forcing to watch two hours of screen time, that is forever.

Frankly disappointed and Denzel Washington. But in this case, more summed up by himself the character than the quality of the game Washington. The protagonist of this strip turned out frankly boring and not interesting. When Washington not could have to present the viewer the personal drama of his character and to achieve at least some return the emotions of the audience. Let's not even empathy. Much more interesting showed Colin Farrell, which has played a significant the best role in his career. However, definitely makes the quite boring in the framework of the script of the character better than it is definitely squeeze all the juice out your character on the screen. It seems totally secondary Carmen Ejogo, which seems frankly superfluous and unnecessary the framework of history. She played accordingly.

Roman Israel, Esq. — this is by far the worst representative of the current award season, which is deservedly it took for a prestigious film award. Very superficial, completely empty, incredibly boring and tedious film that was Frank zilch with the promising Duo of Washington Farrell in the lead roles and showing promise after the "Stringer" Dan Gilroy in as a Director.

Honestly, I would like to protect this project.

And perhaps with main. Definitely an amazing work of Denzel Washington.

For as much as 2 hours, I saw if 1000 different Denselow. What is the number of changes as a character, and the morality of it. I want believe him. I like himself fighting these demons inside. He made me believe in him. It to make very simple.

The plot is very true for this story. We are witnessing a struggle, the main conflict is concluded in our principles of which one or otherwise we disturbed.

Incredible goal pursued by our "madman", and after all, these people can change the world.

There is a large number of the conflicts and problems that can be seen, having watched the movie at least 2 times.

Is fair to the madness of man, to stumble at least once, and"karma" not long to wait. A deep meaning which I want to give this thought — how strong was it ideas principles if the universe said to him" don't you do not give up your "crazy" position, you have gone too far. Otherwise your great idea will turn to the great collapse of the — a small transgression."

The feeling that Dan Gilroy in short 2 hours, wanted to cover the whole a set of problems, and urging the mouth of a Roman of Israel (Denzel Washington) "forgive each other's imperfections, to forget the past and go ahead," expressing dissatisfaction with that he "did not have the patience to participate in the massacre, which here is happening" and"experiencing regret from over social injustice", IMHO, too overdone, and the desire to connect the unconnected, to distribute the extra.. In the end, "lawyer-activist not of this world" turned out to be unnatural and that is not suitable for comparisons hero hidden under the screen of the Novel of Israel and turns out the from the excessive desire to Express the fact that, a priori, not available for expressions and my opinion, it would be much better if not made to throw "burning" and"meaningful" phrases wherever they only can be inserted, and on the contrary, to obscure and would him as possible laconic and expressed in essence of the right time and the right scenes. Many scenes do not sew sleeve...

Okay, even if we assume the existence of a character who, all my life was altruistic and reasoned in a similar way, dreamed about "the new era of social reform" and"on the organization of a viable mass movement when the accompanying changes in the political and social norms with the use of the tactics of collective claims" for that he still gets a high-paying job in a prestigious law firm then what are the actual conclusions about the nature of such a vague and convoluted character? Yes no, for an exception may indicate existing issues and desire prosperous or bloodless resolution in terms of private property, and hence the social injustice of the which means that the precondition is not initially true, but that at least have a desire, it is probably well, because back in where it has been, and really does not make sense... an Idea or as the things that Dan Gilroy here with enthusiasm embodied on the screen, for which he has sacrificed credibility, which, by the way, could would be avoided is not afford new: there are laws on earth each individual site with relevant socio-economic environment, there are spiritual laws also have their own space where they are distributed according to the established order, but there are patterns or behavioral algorithms, where people being rather mental than spiritual, lives and acts in a certain, predetermined way in his prescribed by birth a social environment where the Internet is, I suppose, have plays last role.

More precisely — people initially not is anyone otherwise, since the body and consciousness must undergo a number of successive changes to until not will be sufficiently informed and mentally stable to the perception that he is subject to understand and to perceive. In short, the investigation of these patterns and provide a reasonable explanation of why the law, with its laws and courts are often powerless, because the laws of the earth in most cases, in fundamentally contradict the laws of spiritual and make attention believe that have any individuality of their own program realization, which is realization, then the contradictions, at times, simply outrageous... "We all consist of errors defects" — it's true...

If the picture and looks more or less digestible, it with Colin Farrell. — a brilliant actor who, due to serious and compelling face and work especially not necessary. This actor any heroes at the shoulder.
