Yuck. Even if one did not know the backstory behind this film, it is easy to discern that this comes from some personal animosity against the press in general. But is it Pollacks grudge or Numans? Obviously it’s numans, who is able to strong arm his director into becoming a mere hack tool for his actor to sermonize over the shittiness of the press. Field gets no favors by having to play the dumbest reporter ever.
