Interesting, but too politically preachy
The movie was interesting enough, however, if the main character was a conservative, this movie would have taken a completely opposite tone. But since he is a liberal, the director paints his immoral lifestyle into a more sympathetic tone. Hollywood needs to stay out of politics. They are ruining the reasons people want to see movies.
