IDES OF MARCH
For some reason, it’s easy to forget about Clooney’s proficiency as a Director, having delivered such goods as ‘Confessions of a Dangerous Mind’, ‘Good Night & Good Luck’ and possibly ‘Leatherheads’ for those that liked it. However this time, Clooney’s next cinematic endeavour is that much grander than his previous works, with it’s...
Probably one of the best film scores of the last 20 years.
