David Mamet's screenplay for Hoffa was probably the highlight for me. I love Nicholson but it felt like a caricature more than a performance. DeVito's direction was pretty good but I don't feel like I really missed out by waiting so long to see it.
Although you should probably just skip the first hour, worth a watch -if only to count the number of times Nicholson says "the wurking' man."
indiana is a fascinating state, home to hoffa, debs and a homegrown left wing in usa which u seldom see represented
The film doesn't do justice to David Mamet's underrated screenplay.
Pretty good considering all the scorn poured on it in some quaters,Nicholson is good in the lead and Mamets script crackles .
