The Trial of the Chicago 7 ★★½

the fact that this is definitely winning best original screenplay (and most likely beating NOMADLAND in the best picture drama race) at the golden globes tomorrow... i have to laugh. this is a complex story with a ridiculous amount of characters, so it’d be difficult for anyone to make a biopic about this historical event. that being said, sorkin’s directing and writing here is embarrassingly scattered. it could’ve been worse but jesus christ this is so unfocused, incoherent, and needlessly complicated. the characters spend so much time saying so many words that mean absolutely nothing at all. best original screenplay WHOM? ugh. anyway stream NOMADLAND
