This list features some of the best political movies of the year. The list includes Chadwick Boseman’s Justice, Oliver Stone’s JFK, Angela Lansbury’s The Manchurian Candidate, George Clooney’s Elizabeth I, and more. Let’s take a look!
Oliver Stone’s JFK
Oliver Stone’s JFK is arguably one of the best political movies of all time. The movie stars Willem Dafoe, Tom Berenger, and Charlie Sheen, and also features a superb supporting cast, including Kevin Dillon, Bruce McGill, and Noah Wyle. Oliver Stone is a master storyteller, and JFK is no exception. His screenplay is based on the book by Ronald Kovic. The film is a great study of American politics and its impact on American society.
Oliver Stone has revisited the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in a documentary called “JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass,” a non-fiction follow-up to his popular biopic. It premieres at the Cannes Film Festival, and is sure to provoke debate about the tragic event and the filmmaker’s methods. Oliver Stone began his career as a director in the 1970s with “Platoon” and “Born on the Fourth of July,” but has since gravitated more toward political and fictional narratives.
While “JFK” is an important political film, it also contains some controversial themes. First, the movie questions the Warren Commission’s lone gunman theory. The film suggests that Kennedy was shot by more than one person and shot multiple times. In fact, many Americans still believe the CIA was behind the assassination. However, Stone’s film is also an attempt to debunk that conspiracy theory.
Oliver Stone’s “JFK” is one of the most important political movies of 2022, but it is also the most controversial. Oliver Stone has a lot of talent as a writer and director and his political views have always been controversial. He has also written many critically acclaimed books.
In addition to JFK, Stone has made two documentaries that explore the role of nuclear power in the modern world. He and Joshua S. Goldstein have also written a documentary titled “Nuclear,” which looks into the role of nuclear power as an alternative to fossil fuels. Deadline recently interviewed Stone and Goldstein about the film, and the filmmakers admitted that the long production process had nearly zapped the life out of them.
Oliver Stone’s “Platoon” is another political movie that emphasizes the impact of the Vietnam War and its ramifications. Tom Cruise’s character (Tom Cruise) goes from patriotic soldier to antiwar activist. The movie won the Academy Award for best director and received two Golden Globes.
Chadwick Boseman’s Justice
Chadwick Boseman’s latest movie is a biopic of the first African-American Supreme Court Justice, Thurgood Marshall. In the movie, Marshall begins his career as an NAACP attorney who defends a Black man accused of rape in Connecticut. Then, he successfully argues against segregation in the 1954 Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education.
The film focuses on a fictional senator named Laine Hanson, who is nominated for vice president after the death of her veep. After he gets elected, she is accused of prostitution during her college years. However, she proves her innocence and defeats the accusations against her. Justice is one of the best political movies of 2022.
In addition to being a biopic, Justice also depicts the rise of a civil rights leader, the future Supreme Court justice. This film stars Chadwick Boseman as a black man who fights for equality. It portrays racism in the justice system, as well as the racial disparity in America.
Another film with a political theme is The Post, which stars Dustin Hoffman and Robert De Niro. It follows the events leading up to the assassination of former president John F. Kennedy in 1963. As the film unfolds, the conspiracy is revealed and a cover-up is created. Ultimately, the film demonstrates that politics are not an easy topic to tackle.
Justice is a powerful film about the fight for racial justice in the United States. The movie is an excellent example of an actor’s ability to make a positive impact in the world. It’s a film that should be seen by many people.
Justice will make the viewer think about the importance of the human right to freedom in politics. This film will highlight how the political struggle affects people across the globe. While the film is about a black man in the Vietnam War, it’s also a film about black veterans returning home from the war to search for a fallen commander. The film is slated for a sequel, and its star, Chadwick Boseman, have shown his abilities to be incredibly powerful.
Angela Lansbury’s performance in The Manchurian Candidate
In “The Manchurian Candidate,” Angela Lansbury plays a manipulator who is as devious and cunning as a foreign agent. Her performance is the primary reason the film continues to resonate with audiences today. The movie’s cast includes Frank Sinatra, Laurence Harvey, and Angela Lansbury.
The performance peaks in a monologue where Angela Lansbury explains the underlying conspiracy to Raymond. This monologue could have been overplayed or awkward, but the camera is positioned low and her eyes burn with zealous fury. Lansbury’s hair also hints at the underlying character.
Lansbury earned three Oscar nominations and an honorary Oscar for her performance in the film. Her role as Eleanor Iselin is both fascinating and terrifying. She’s a condescending and manipulative mother, but she’s also brilliant. Unlike many other young actresses who struggled to make the transition to more mature roles, Lansbury was able to do so effortlessly.
Despite her age, Angela Lansbury had a successful career spanning eight decades. Her golden voice and versatile accent made her an excellent choice for all kinds of roles. From a twang to a Cockney accent, Lansbury’s voice was one of her best assets. Her talent extended beyond the screen, as she played a variety of roles in television and on stage.
“The Manchurian Candidate” is a political thriller that becomes more fascinating as it ages. This 1962 film was remade in 2004 with Denzel Washington and Angela Lansbury. The film has strong themes and has many facets.
Angela Lansbury’s performance as Eleanor Iselin makes the character more human. Her love for Shaw is clearly apparent, but there’s no remorse for her actions. She portrays her affection for Shaw in a dark manner, bordering on incestuous.
After her triumph in “Murder, She Wrote,” Lansbury went on to work on the cinema. Her role as Miss Marple in “The Mirror Cracked” wasn’t a game changer in Agatha Christie adaptations, but it was a significant moment for her. The role would lead her to sign on to the cozy mystery series “Murder, She Wrote,” created by Levinson and Link.
George Clooney’s Elizabeth I
Clooney’s new movie, Elizabeth I, opens on Feb. 7. Starring Cate Blanchett, Ryan Gosling, and Matt Damon, this movie is sure to please. Other big names in the movie include Bill Murray, Hugh Bonneville, and Jean Dujardin. Clooney also directs the movie, which is a rare treat these days.
As an actor, Clooney is no stranger to politics. In fact, he’s been a strong supporter of Joe Biden for several years. But he has shrugged off the topic of Joe Biden’s low poll numbers. As an activist, Clooney has been active on the political and economic fronts. He has served as a UN Messenger of Peace since 2008.
Elizabeth I stars George Clooney and is one of the best political movies of 2022. It’s set in Elizabeth’s time, and the film has a great ensemble cast. It also stars Robert Downey Jr. and Holly Hunter. If you like George Clooney, you’ll love the movie.
Clooney’s career took off in 2001 with the remake of the 1960s hit Ocean’s Eleven. The movie earned $451 million worldwide and spawned a trilogy. Clooney’s other films include Good Night, and Good Luck, and the sequel, The Ides of March.
Elizabeth II stars Helen Mirren as Queen Elizabeth II. The film depicts the Royal Family after the death of Princess Diana. In many ways, this historical drama is as gripping as Netflix’s The Crown. Mirren’s portrayal has won praise from the Queen.
