A simplistic biopic; an engrossing courtroom drama
The index of a biopic’s success is the biographer’s eye and judgement. A writer or director can be variously inspired to immerse in a life—the dangerous impulses of the obscure drove Truman Capote to Holcomb, Kansas, when he wrote In Cold Blood; Gus Van Sant’s portrait of Harvey Milk in his film Milk has the unmistakable tone of awe and inspiration. Both are random examples of portraits in which the maker is interested not just in chronicling an extraordinary life through facts, thereby making it emotionally and politically correct, but also has his or her own position and creative and intellectual stake in its making.
