A RID­DLE NEVER END­ING, AN AN­SWER NEVER FOUND, US, 112MIN

An er­ratic po­lit­i­cal biopic of Dick Cheney, an enig­matic fig­ure who served as VP to Ge­orge W. Bush from 2001-09. The stand­out rea­son to see the movie is the vir­tu­oso per­for­mance of Christian Bale, who has added a stack of ki­los and lost a lot of hair to be­come a dead-ringer for the dead-hearted US mas­ter ma­nip­u­la­tor. An ob­vi­ous prob­lem is a lack of sto­ry­telling clar­ity. Co-stars Amy Adams, Steve Carell, Sam Rock­well.
