Miss Sloane (2016)

Machiavelli  to Kaiser Soze

This was a surprisingly good movie. It reminded me a little of Michael Clayton...although not quite as good. Jessica Chastain was incredible in this one, incredibly Machiavellian! However, Miss Sloane reminds me of Kaiser Soze in her scheming, planning, cunning and ruthlessness. 

The movie also had Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mark Strong, Alison Pill and John Lithgow. Apparently Miss Sloane didn't do well at the box office, and several outlets panned it pretty badly, but hell - I rarely agree with the critics anyway!

Elizabeth Sloane: Cynical is a word used by Pollyannas to denote an absence of the naivete they so keenly exhibit.

Miss Sloan "is so devious, so driven and so addicted to winning that she makes Kevin Spacey’s Machiavellian politician Frank Underwood in House Of Cards look mild-mannered and lily-livered by comparison." The Independent

RATING: I enjoyed this movie!

WATCH IT AGAIN?: Definitely

DO I WANNA OWN IT?: No, it's on Amazon Prime so I'm sure if I want to watch again it'll be accessible somewhere.
