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.
