Suffering artist vs. politician Dad
29 November 2000 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Whew! This overwrought film about an emotionally damaged artist whose controversial work embarrasses his Dad, a judge now running for Congress, is a chore to watch.

The movie was meant to be grittily realistic, but couldn't overcome the two-dimensional nature of the main characters. The Dad was a caricature, an insanely ambitious, deceitful, and hypocritical politician. The son was a caricature, too -- an artist who must tell the truth through his art and suffers mightily for his brutal honesty -- a put-upon martyr and saint.

Exhausting, totally exhausting.
