Danny DeVito France, 1992

Mtume Gant's rating of the film Hoffa

Devito’s fictional character is the poster child for why fictional characters are terrible ideas in biopics. It could have worked if the film didn’t aim to be a biopic. If they aimed to do some kind of real expressionistic film about Hoffa Devtio’s character could have worked as some kind of emotional representation of Hoffa’s contradictions, maybe as a person who never existed, but it lives to literal & it failed.
