All the Money in the World
First screened in December 2017
Director: Ridley Scott. Cast: Michelle Williams, Mark Wahlberg, Charlie Plummer, Christopher Plummer, Romain Duris, Marco Leonardi, Timothy Hutton, Andrew Buchan, Charlie Shotwell, Giuseppe Bonifati, Nicolas Vaporidis, Andrea Piedimonte Bodini, Guglielmo Favilla. Screenplay: David Scarpa (based on the book Painfully Rich: The Outrageous Fortune and Misfortunes of the Heirs of J. Paul Getty by John Pearson).

Twitter Capsule: Bloated, disorganized, and visually pompous, with no coherent point of view on its story or characters.

VOR:   Scott and his colleagues of course can mount a proficient, even opulent drama, but this is scale without soul or substance, Plummer aside.
