About the Film
Four-time Oscar®-winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men, True Grit, Fargo) write and direct Hail, Caesar!, an all-star comedy set during the latter years of Hollywood's Golden Age. Starring Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, and Channing Tatum, Hail, Caesar! follows a single day in the life of a studio fixer who is presented with plenty of problems to fix.
Disjointed Slow and boring
No spoilers here other than a lot of big names aimlessly wandering around a script without purpose. George Clooney just looks lost, Josh Brolin tries a good performance and Tilda Swinton is just awful (but no surprise there) but all told it's a bunch of separate stories, loosely slung into a film about making films. It's too long, too slow and actually delivers nothing. I came away wondering what the point was.
Worst film ever
Sure there is brilliance in there somewhere, probably the way the film was made. Definitely not a film if you want to sit down and just enjoy a good story.
