Bryan Cranston as LBJ
4 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

Bryan Cranston's performance as US President LBJ, is simply stunning. If you thought, as I did, Cranston was brilliant in the recent movie Trumbo, wait till you see this movie. Whilst LBJ himself might not have been the most exciting of US Presidents, he did have a profound depth of eccentricity, southern character, a plethora of foibles, and was a master manipulator. Cranston delivers LBJ with possibly even more depth than the man himself had. Every movement, every look, every gesture and every single word Cranston offers, is a joy to behold. The performance is so natural,and so subtly done even at a microscopic level, the viewer has no choice but to believe it is not Cranston at all, but is LBJ himself. This actor has taken his craft to an even greater level, in what was already a magnificent career. The standards are very high in this movie and all of the cast and team deserve the accolades that will no doubt be given. Many congratulations Mr. Cranston.
