Roman J. Israel, Esq. is the movie we all need to see. Ignore the Rotten Tomatoes score. This is a movie for our times. Because Roman J. Israel, Esq. is the child that exists in all of us. The simple truth that every one of us is born with, but that gets buried under the roar of the machine that we turn to as a false prophet. Money. Power. Greed. Indifference. These are the themes we’re most comfortable with. And they’re tempting as hell. Even for people like Roman J. Israel, Esq.
Also, Denzel Washington is America’s greatest living actor.
