Revealing and fascinating.
30 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An exceptionally engaging drama-documentary on all counts. Many people will have heard of Joe McCarthy most probably by the term 'McCarthy Witch- hunts' but will not know anything much about him. It was revealing in many fundamental ways (which I obviously won't mention here) and a fascinating insight into politics and the way human beings can manipulate each other and the media. Excellent production values throughout and extremely good performances from the whole cast. John sessions is excellent in the leading role proving himself a dramatic actor of real quality. His American accent is superb as well especially considering that he's actually (so i understand), Scottish. Philip Bulcock appears in a small to medium sized role and gives an excellent performance as does Peter Brooke and Ryan McClusky. These actors have worked together on a number of drama- documentary films previously.
