Movie Review: Hail, Caesar!

I watched this movie with my dad. I’m actually surprised that this was only in theaters for a short amount of time considering it turned out to be a pretty good film. The cinematography is amazingly beautiful. I loved seeing all the old film equipment being showcased. I also really enjoyed the costume and set design because everything is vintage and I really like that 40’s style aesthetic.

I was worried that too many good actors would ruin this film, but that was not the case. George Clooney’s character is my favorite in this movie. Scarlet Johansson is a close second. She looks and sounds great and her role in the film is a very important to how women were treated in the film industry during this time.

Channing Tatum does a lot of singing and dancing in this film and just feels a little out of place with the rest of the movie. He has a relatively small role in this film despite being on the poster for the movie. I’m actually surprised that Jonah Hill is next to George Clooney because he doesn’t really have a bigger role than any of the other people standing next to him.

What I thought was interesting was the mention of communism in the film. I won’t spoil George Clooney’s speech, but what he said was very interesting. He also talks about communist ideals being interjected in many mainstream films and that has convinced to look at this movie project in a different light.

In my opinion, it was as if he told the truth, but because people have always been told not believe what you hear in the movies, it makes you feel unsure of what to believe. I wasn’t really expecting this movie to make me think as much as it did, but it actually did a good job.

As much I did like it, I still thought it was 45 minutes too long. I also thought it did a good job of portraying the film industry. It’s worth a watch, but I can see why it didn’t last very long in theaters.

My score: 7/10
