Since I couldn’t have told you when the Olympics were in Atlanta, I found it worth watching. Whether there’s much to the story beyond the depiction of events is an entirely different conversation.
I was working in Atlanta for a broadcaster the night of the Atlanta bombing at the Olympics so remember quite a lot of the immediate aftermath and the enormous speculation into what had actually happened and of the expectations put on law enforcement to convince not just the USA but the rest of the world that the Games were safe. This film is an authentic take on these days with a strong performance from Paul Walter Hauser as the security guard who found the bomb only to be later accused of having planted it in the first place. Sam Rockwell is great as the attorney determined not to cave in to the pressure and ensure his client gets a fair hearing as the authorities appear determined to scapegoat him. Kathy Bates plays his mum strongly, too. It’s far too long, though – and at times it sags in the middle – it is virtually impossible to sustain the level of intense dialogue. It’s a good film, but not a great film.
Saw it, loved it.
I always wonder why some directors make crap movies and others make great movies. Clint Eastwood has one of the greatest portfolios of smart, intelligent, interesting and well acted films. From humble beginnings as an actor he has developed into an iconic director. You know going into the theatre that your going to see an artist at work. This story, this movie is what careers are made off. Go see it.
Watch a man get mauled by overzealous FBI and frantic media
“Richard Jewell” (2019 release; 125 min.) brings the story of the suspected 1996 Atlanta bomber. As the movie opens, it is “1986 Atlanta” and Jewell is working as a supply room manager in a small law firm. He gets to know one of the lawyers,, Watson Bryant. We then go to “1996 Piedmont College” where Jewell is working as a security officer but he really sees himself as a law enforcer. Eventually, just months before the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, he is fired by Piedmont’s President… At this point we are 10 min. into the movie but to tell you more of the plot would spoil your viewing experience, you’ll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.
Couple of comments: this is the latest movie from director/producer Client Eastwood. Here he brings the story of Richard Jewell, whom you may recall was a security officer at Atlanta’s Centennial Park the night a bomb attack killed 2 and wounded many more. For reasons the movie reveals in great details (but I don’t want to spoil for you), Jewell becomes a “person of interest” and the frantic media jump on the story. It is frankly incredibly frightening when you put it all into context and see how a man’s life gets mauled. Per the usual, Eastwood does a great job to keep the movie going forward. The all- star ensemble cast is incredible: Paul Walter Hauser IS Richard Jewell, and Sam Rockwell, Kathy Bates, Jon Hamm and Olivia Wilde are equally outstanding. This movie was filmed in the Spring of this year, and now barely 6 months later, it is already in theaters.
“Richard Jewell” premiered wide this weekend, and I couldn’t wait to see it. The Saturday early evening screening where I saw this at here in Cincinnati was attended dismally (4 people exactly), much to my surprise. If you have any interest to see how the 1996 Atlanta bombing played out, I’d readily suggest you check this out, be it in the theater, on VOD, or eventually on DVD/Blu-ray, and draw your own conclusion.
