Reviews
ReviewSource Los Angeles Times
Review "All the King's Men" is a somber film about loss, betrayal and regret. With its emphasis on human frailty, the death of dreams and wasted potential, this celebrated story of the uses and abuses of political and personal power has a strong sense of drama and tragedy. It is a chronicle of a death foretold that's familiar not once but three times over...Perhaps the most remarkable thing about "All the King's Men" is how contemporary so many of its issues seem. Not only the classic question of means and ends, the validity of Stark's insistence that "good can always be made from bad," but also the question of who if anyone in American life speaks for the poor and dispossessed, a question that was last raised, ironically, when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans.

Review When an Oscar-winning screenwriter directs his first major-budget, star-laden movie, you might expect it would be impressively scripted but a little shaky on the visual end. But the opposite is true in "All the King's Men.'' It looks stunning, awash in the faded greens of a Corot painting. No color could better convey the jealousy and back stabbing rampant in the political cesspool it depicts...Director Steven Zaillian has made a point of saying he hasn't seen the 1949 adaptation, which won an Academy Award for best picture and two more for acting. He might have learned something if he had. It is essential viewing for anyone trying to understand what the heck is going on in his muddled version.
