One of the best Preminger's works. The total domain of the camera, actors and dialogues in this film creat an unstoppable rhythm until the end (reminding me "Sweet Smell of Success"). I need to focus another precious aspect, Preminger touch the two of the most visible paranoids in the american society "communism" and "homosexuality" and how he unmask them and combine in the same intrigue.
Ehh. Advise and Consent starts off strong enough but all of the bluster and kicked up dust land pretty quickly in the second act and it was too long. For as great as the ensemble cast is, too many of the characters seemed unnecessary and a lot of them just kind of disappeared. Great acting and wonderful direction, but overall just a pretty flat movie with a few performances to make a difference.
