Critic Reviews of "The Ides of March"indieWireOctober 14, 2011
The world of politics provides all the drama-and satiric fodder-any filmmaker could ask for. And even though the public has shown indifference to such movies in recent years, Hollywood keeps making them...Christian Science MonitorOctober 07, 2011
At its best, the film is like a political version of Sweet Smell of Success, another movie where the corruption was so rampant it gleamed.Denver PostOctober 07, 2011
As for Clooney, when he steps from behind the camera, his candidate exudes an easy, judicious authority.San Jose Mercury NewsOctober 07, 2011
This is intelligent filmmaking, and a provocative moral fable. It may not be perfect, but it stands as one of the better, most realistic movies about the way we elect our leaders.The AtlanticOctober 07, 2011
From the film's ideological vantage point, moderate Democrats are Machiavellian devils, and Republicans are an inconceivable evil looming on a distant horizon, like the White Walkers in Game of Thrones.Detroit NewsOctober 07, 2011
The Ides of March is a well-made actors showcase and fine film. But it never finds that more.Epoch TimesJuly 13, 2016
A well-told tale of filthy politics and betrayal; a virtuoso hat trick (writing, directing, and starring) by George Clooney. It almost makes you wish he'd stop acting and run for office.Seanax.comMay 22, 2016
It's ultimately less political thriller or election allegory than morality play in partisan dress.Bangkok PostMay 10, 2016
Despite the puddles, it all seems a little too clinical. It's Giamatti and Hoffman who turn up to chew the scene, intensely yet effortlessly, and it's only too bad the narrative relegates them to the sidebar.In These TimesApril 13, 2016
Only an innocent high-schooler could be scandalized by the film's depiction of backroom cynicism.The Improper BostonianMay 12, 2015
Why is this sleek, well-crafted movie almost impossble to get excited about?Big HollywoodJune 30, 2013
A brilliant political thriller about strategy, loyalty and idealism that is willing to unmask candidates who build their campaigns on slogans, not policies.
