Following his 15 years absence from the big screen, actor-director-writer, Warren Beatty, is back at age 79 portraying legendary eccentric business mogul, Howard Hughes.
Beatty, today, is already ten years older in age than when Hughes passed away but that did not stop him from taking that role upon himself… being he is the director and could choose whoever he wanted for that role.
The one thing you can’t take away from Beatty is that he has done a superb job casting his supporting cast which includes Alec Baldwin, Matthew Broderick, Candice Bergen, Annette Bening, Ed Harris, Oliver Platt, Alden Ehrenrich and Lilly Collins. And speaking of Collins, following in her daddy’s, Phil Collins, footsteps, she sings the theme song, which actually hits a nerve with almost everyone who watches the flick.
“Rules Don’t Apply” is Beatty’s fifth movie as a director (and the first one he directed in eighteen years), which has many question if by directing “Rules Don’t Apply” he might stain his flawless choices as a director with classics like “Reds” and “Bulworth”… only time will tell.
The script of “Rules Don’t Apply” doesn’t really know what it wants to be, it is not quite a comedy, not quite a drama and not quite a bio-pic… What it does have is great acting and it was beautifully shot… I give it an undecided THUMPS IN THE MIDDLE.
