Bizarrely beautiful sort-of-love story.
An astonishing, unforgiving gut-punch.
Highly troubled, moderately competent thriller.
True-life disaster film of the highest order.
A dizzying and bold arthouse trip.
A zombie-morality masterpiece.
Oscure, original, but not quite fantastic.
Somber and gripping neo-Western.
Biopics seem to have this curse. It will either have a tremendous amount of impact and we’ll leave the cinema feeling dazed at the real life story we have saw brought to life once again. Or, some don’t have as much impact as intended, and although we can sense the efforts made to try and wow us, we leave the cinema feeling fairly unsatisfied. So where does The Program fit in?
