  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Absence of Malice

    Film intéressant et sympathique sur la puissance de la presse et ce fameux quatrième pouvoir souvent encensé, ici décrié. Personne honnête ou véreuse, peu importe, il suffit de se protéger derrière la trop fameuse clause professionnelle : "absence of malice", à savoir : absence d'intention de nuire...

  2. William's rating of the film Absence of Malice

    3.5 Compelling drama exploring the ethics of journalism. Wilford Brimley gives the final half hour a real shot of life. Bob Balaban definitely went too far with the rubber band thing though.

  3. Dalibor's rating of the film Absence of Malice

    Spectacularly unspectacular twist of a story rewarding the ones who can keep focus. First comes the slow pace, then some quirky acting and unconvincing character lines eventually compensated by Wilfred Brimley's role, and finally notion you were left empty handed just as everyone else but Newman. But only to make your decision regarding the spectacle-chasing premise of both it's main topic and movie in general.

  4. Steve Pulaski's rating of the film Absence of Malice

    Give Wilford Brimley a belated Oscar, will ya?
