    Sorkin spellbinds again with this human look at a tumultuous time, and does a throwback to his early days of "A Few Good Men" with this courtroom drama. An absolutely amazing cast, with great performances, and Sorkin's writing keeps you glued to the film. Perfect pacing, wonderful messages that, yes, are just (it not more) as relevant today.

    It was fine but... Wow! That ending came straight out of a 90’s movie. I know they moved that moment to the end of the trial for dramatic purposes but, why with that approach instead of something more subdued? The tone went from To Kill a Mockingbird to the ending of Big Daddy in a second. The only thing missing was a narration saying: “And that was the summer when we were part of the Trial of the Chicago 7”. As I said, the rest is fine. Sorkin is a functional director for better or worse. 3 years 5 months ago

    Whether you like this courtroom drama or not, you have to acknowledge the virtuosity in Aaron Sorkin's writing & directing. Thanks to high-paced editing and a variety in shots, the almost permanent waves of dialogue from many figures stay entertaining even to a broad audience, with sometimes thrilling rhetoric showdowns.
    I appreciate how Sorkin seems to be able to turn any subject into digestible 2-hour entertainment, be it 1968 protests, weird poker criminal cases or the absurdlly contemporary Facebook biography. Not many have that gift.

    The amount of known faces in the cast is astonishing. I can't believe how corny the final minutes were, though. Bad choice of music there. Ugh.
