Joblo | 'American Pastoral' Review


Even if it’s uneven and sometimes dull, McGregor is not without talent behind the camera. It just feels like he’s bitten-off a bit more than he could chew here, but far more accomplished directors have mangled Roth a lot worse than he did, so there’s really no shame. American Pastoral may wind-up an interesting footnote in his career, and I wouldn’t be surprised if his next directorial effort is something significantly better as there’s enough here to suggest some real potential behind the camera.

The story is too old to be commented.
