The highly anticipated version of Donald Trump’s Brendan Gilson is almost upon us, and further reviews are already running out. The Labor Rule, based on the book by former FBI Director James Labor A high loyalty, About the 2016 US election and the events that followed it, which premiered in the US on Saturday night as a result of Trump’s dismissal, and here next week on Sky Atlantic and now on TV.
In general, as a Jeff Daniels comedian, the two-part drama is not really about Trump, which doesn’t even appear in the first episode. Daniels told the New York Times this week that according to writer-director Billy Ray, The Kamei rule was about “the struggle to be a fair public servant in today’s America.”
Reviews of key reviews have noted, often critically, how the drama goes as far as the camera’s own image as well as a principled supporter of the law, and the alleged ego of Clinton during the election scandal. Failed to prove widespread criticism. The campaign and how much it could contribute to Trump’s ultimate success.
“Ray doesn’t pay close attention to the views of many people who know that morality plays a role in the character and behavior of the worker.” Writes the critic of the slate. “Daniel does not offer a concise and very encouraging confession that he can be ‘self-righteous.'”
This is not a drama that many viewers will come across without thinking. Met and interviewed workers When he was in Dublin a few years ago, I will be curious to see how well Ray and Daniels manage to take the form of a solid portrait of this highly controversial and difficult personality. But let’s be honest. Here is what we all want to know: What is Gleason’s Trump like?
“Gleason works harder than he does, to offer more on Trump’s influence.” The Washington Post reports. “When he is never fully convinced, he gives the right mix of ignorance, arrogance and immorality. No need for ambiguity anymore; The Kamai rule correctly decides that there is no necessary secret to solve about the President. “
The Hollywood ReporterHowever, it does detect more complications. “Trump is almost certain to hate Glaison’s dealings,” he says. “But in many ways it is read openly in the middle of a sea of obsession with our current president. With slippery, agile, sniffing intensity, Gleason plays Trump as a calculator of bullying smart and weak people, blindfolds one second and manipulates the next. He’s a lumbering, ground-bound, poorly dressed man, but to go low on your own crisis. Gleason’s accent and inclinations fall, yet he captures an insight that the real Trump hardly reveals. It’s a mediocre impression and possibly the best performance. ”
Let’s pause for a moment to recognize two things. Brendan Gleason is one of the greatest film actors of our time, and Trump presents a unique challenge to any actor. Everything about Trump – his pervasiveness, his cartoonish futility, his disgust, and his apparent resilience – contradicts important dramatic interpretations. How can you avoid falling into the trap of a bad Saturday night live skit?
Gleason’s performance seems utterly disappointing, as he exposed the Rosta stone on Trump’s soul, or lack thereof.
“There is something internally false in any of Trump’s portraits.” AV Club reviewer writes. “The man is such an emotional cartoon, it’s hard to see a portrayal of him that doesn’t immediately come out as a satire. Gleason provides a better job for anyone yet to discover the terrible humanity within man. Wisely, he underperforms Trump, making him the only weary companion more than Renting Buffon, with a living sense of laziness that honestly and uneasily feels true. It’s not strange for the two men, it takes a while to cross a lot of similarities, but after its initial awkwardness, Gleason’s performance is immediately clear, as if he exposed Trump’s soul or Rosta Stone. Of it
Wisely, Gleason has chosen not to campaign for the Labor Rule. With the political thermometer rising in the last weeks of the presidential campaign in the United States, there is nothing he could say or do that would not be twisted and turned against him (at least not by Trump). He did not have to handle this seemingly impossible role. Nor did he need to set himself up for an abuse online abuse barrage that would necessarily follow. It is one thing for people in the arts and entertainment industries to promote their political qualities, as they do on a regular basis; It’s another thing for them to put their hands directly into the fire. We should salute his principles and his courage.
The Kamai rule begins on September 30 at Sky Atlantic
