The irony is that Affleck's battering at the hands of fame has prepped him beautifully to play Reeves.

Entertainment Weekly
The chief frustration of this otherwise well-made, well-acted, well-heeled picture -- a movie classy in its artful modesty, with every detail of plot and period furnishings lovingly conceived, every lick of jazz-influenced score true to the times --...

Haunting
I watched Hollywoodland not expecting much and was pleasantly surprised. Perhaps not Oscar-winning material but this is certainly an underrated film that should get more coverage. The film stayed with me a lot longer than I thought it would, and the...

Overlong by about 30 minutes...and they are 30 lumbering minutes. Great performances. The Adrien Brody character would have been a great fictional detective. Unfortunately, he's stuck in reality with a case that remains unsolved and a director who...

Affleck has never been better, and this is certainly in Diane Lane's top ten. Adrien Brody was OK, but a bit miscast, methinks. The story is a serious one but never falls into any melodramatic traps; the tone remains even and pitch perfect...

Two intertwined and related stories make up Hollywoodland -- the story of actor George Reeves, who starred in TVs Superman, and the tale of a fictional detective investigating Reeves suicide. Reeves was a good-looking, charming, talented guy who...
