    Assassination Nation

    ★★★★

    Sam (son of Barry) Levinson made his directorial debut in 2011 with comedy/drama Another Happy Day but I think it’s fair to say that many viewers bypassed it. With his sophomore film Assassination Nation he crafts something that’s very hard to ignore or overlook - regardless of whether you love it or loathe it.

Even though David Mackenzie’s Outlaw King arrives over 20 years later, that comparison still weighs heavy. That said, Mackenzie is more interested in historical accuracy and plays his film with a different and quieter tone. That’s not…
