New DVD Debut: State of Play, Sugar

State of PlayThe latest DVD Debut eats Russell Crowe’s donuts. Now we’re ill.

Russell Crowe, Ben Affleck, a crackling political thriller in the All the President’s Men mode … what’s not to like? Well, maybe Crowe—carefully unkempt and chomping Cheetos as the last reporter in town—is an acquired taste. But Affleck nails it as a youthful congressman tied up in dead mistresses and security contractors. The narrative locomotive sweeps away ethical arguments as Crowe chases the truth and his ailing newspaper chases a deadline. Rachel McAdams also scores as the political blogger of our dreams.
