The Front Runner

Description
It seems that the story will be controversial as it speaks of a politician named Gary Hart, a US senator from Colorado. Hart appeared to be the most widely-favored candidate in the race for the Democratic nomination for the presidency after losing the 1984 nomination to Vice President Walter. Things may change exactly where Hart made a mistake when he published pictures of him in 1987, which caused a major scandal. In the end, Hart wanted to reform his reputation, which could affect him completely in those elections, but to no avail.

There's an argument in the film about what is interesting and what is important, and how the two should be weighed. In that spirit, "The Front Runner" is interesting, but it's not weighty or assured enough to be important.

Forcefully directed by Jason Reitman (Up In The Air), the film is essentially an origin story accounting for the venality of today's rabid media culture, covering hot-button topics such as invasion of privacy, newsroom bias and double-standards.

Reitman is good at posing questions for which he doesn't have answers and, although that makes for compelling drama, the results feel incomplete and frustrating.

In a similar vein to Steven Spielberg's The Post, The Front Runner delves into the important role of journalism in a world filled with corruption and "fake news".

Reitman loses his focus and, despite the brilliant portrayal by Hugh Jackman, the film insists on telling everything in a diffuse and confused way.

As played by an aloof Hugh Jackman - the Australian actor affects an uneven accent - Hart is little more than a cipher.

People answer in punchlines here, and leave it to director Reitman to always lead with irony.
