Toronto 2016: 'LBJ' Review

Sight unseen, the assumption was that Rob Reiner's biopic LBJ was a stinker. Screening late in the Toronto Film Festival, which is usually a black hole in terms of quality, the movie didn't look so good. So, the best than can be said about the movie is that, actually, it's not that bad. Woody Harrelson makes for an interesting Lyndon Johnson, but Reiner's conventionality drags down the proceedings. My review is up at Screen International.
