Richard Jewell

Clint Eastwood makes small movies about the human condition and he does it very well. Having said that, I just watched Richard Jewell, the story about the Atlanta security guard who first discovered the bomb in Centennial Park, 1996, during the Summer Olympics, saving many lives, and how the FBI tried every dirty trick in their playbook to frame him for the deed... based on nothing but innuendo and trial by media. The movie offers some good insights on the abuses of law enforcement, in particular the FBI, and the media while also being a fine piece of dramatic cinematography.

Mods: I searched to make sure this wasn't already an ongoing thread somewhere. I always do this before posting but apparently my search capabilities sometimes miss the mark. Please move it if needed.
