The Ides of March (2011)

Movie Description (from Rotten Tomatoes)

The Ides of March takes place during the frantic last days before a heavily contested Ohio presidential primary, when an up-and-coming campaign press secretary (Ryan Gosling) finds himself involved in a political scandal that threatens to upend his candidate’s shot at the presidency.

My Review

This is the second movie I’ve watched in short period of time by Gosling that had a shitty ending.  The movie was entertaining throughout, a very intellectual movie, with strong acting, that kept me thinking and trying to figure it out.  I was able to read the story and tell where it was going, but I watched this with a group of four people and they weren’t able to see where it was going.

Then it ended – it was horrible and out of nowhere.  I understood what they were trying to say, and the commentary that they were trying to make on the political arena, but it was still a shit end.  It took me twenty minutes to explain it to the people I was with, and no movie should have an ending that leaves that much open in the finish.
