The Company You Keep is an average thriller. It's not entirely exhilarating, but passes the time despite being a little too long at just over two hours. However, forget the thriller aspect for a second, the weirdest bit is the journalism side of the story and its clear hatred for new media. To be fair, I share director Robert Redford's disgust for the hit baiting slam pieces that come from today's media more focused on clicks than integrity and proper sourcing. But, as we watch a young journalist do everything he can to check his sources and get the story straight, the way the narrative plays out it all begins to feel extraordinarily contradictory. Written by Lem Dobbs (The Limey, Dark City), The Company You Keep is an adaptation of Neil Gordon's novel centering on a young journalist's exploration into the identity of a former member of the Weather Underground. »
