Fifth about The Seventh

The Founder (2016)

The Founder: there is much to be said about the savage entrepreneurship of John Lee Hancock’s film main character, both good and bad. His is an interesting story, and the complex nature of the character make this a good sit, even if the film has a very conventional feel. Michael Keaton is in good form, making this character bearable to watch. The rest of the cast is OK, but their characters merely rate as such, being more of stepping-stones so the tale can advance. Technically, the film has a competent but unremarkable feel to it: cinematographer John Schwartzman’s images are fine but pedestrian, Robert Frazen’s editing is mundane.
