Hollywoodland was a terrific film about what may have lead to the death/suicide of actor George Reeves (Superman). It is done in the old film noir style of classic Hollywood detective films. Diane Lane, Bob Hoskins, Adrien Brody and yes, even Ben Affleck (as George Reeves) give terrific performances. Well worth a blind buy in my opinion. I saw it in the theater and I have it pre-ordered from Amazon. Go to rottentomatoes.com and read some reviews.

Ditto to what Aaron said above...I too usually despise anything Ben Affleck is in but in this movie he and the entire cast were excellent throughout...this is a definite buy title for me...

I have to say, I'm not a big Ben Affleck fan, so I was hesitant, but he really did shine in this.


His portrayal of George Reeves was very impressive, over the course of the movie he really does embody Reeves' essence.


If the subject matter interests you, I think it's a good purchase, if the subject mater is not of interest, I don't think you'll enjoy it.

Those were all supposed to be not very good movies, so it wasn't just Ben Affleck. Hollywoodland was supposed to be very good and Ben Affleck got good reviews. I have not seen the movie, but will probably go ahead and order it anyways.
