Has some interesting stuff. A facinating period in history. Some nice perfomances ( Bill Murray and John Cusack in particular). The story is kind of muddled though. Hard to follow. Never really comes together with dramatic interest.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Sprawling, invigorating concoction uses Orson Welles and John Houseman's legendary stage production of Marc Blitzstein's The Cradle Will Rock as a springboard for look at 1930s art, culture, politics, and big business. Writer-director Robbins takes liberties with the facts but creates a fascinating patchwork of personalities, ideas, and ideals. Aims high and succeeds amazingly well. Super 35.
