    Review: “The Comedian”

    By kyle | February 2, 2017

    Robert De Niro is still doing the vaguely threatening standup comic thing. This time he’s actually supposed to be good at it. My review is up.

      Another aging harpie I’ll never watch again.

      De Niro also did Mamet’s “Wag the Dog”. Which, intentionally or not, blasted the Clinton’s extremely corrupt administration and the fake media that made them possible. A case can be made that it was the most conservative, or at least had the most political impact of any “conservative” movie since.

      That’s why I cut him some slack.
