Johnson: It's important to know we're all in this together. We can't afford to have any bad apples. I'm sure you understand. Oh and Miss, I'd be careful who you share those opinions with, there are a lot of patriots out there, and they are passionate.

Professional movie from a young director
14 September 2019 | by hmarcy-77388See all my reviews

It is a very great film. All the story, the music, the visualisation very professional. The mood with the jazz music and black and white picture are fit to the theme. We get a realistic picture about the genious but diffucult director.

The low budget were filled up with passion.
