Hail Caesar!

Hail,_Caesar!_Teaser_posterHail Caesar! (2016) – 3/10

Visually appealing Coen brothers film about a ‘golden age’ in Hollywood.  Mostly disappointing though as it lacked the rich characters and engrossing story telling expected by Coen brother’s enthusiasts.

A star studded ensemble cast cavorts on screen. Vignettes occasionally deliver provocative thoughts that peter out or collapse with a frenetic leap to another superficial glimpse.  Does the golden age deserve this honour?

An homage to the Hollywood film industry perhaps with a meta-story perspective.  Just wanted more I guess.
