I saw this one last night. It ranks pretty low on the John Sayles scale, which makes it a pretty good movie by most measures. But it's worth the price of admission to see Chris Cooper's version of a bumbling politician. He must have watched uncounted hours of CNN to get this down.

Sadly, as Darryl Hannah points out, it's getting tough to shock people these days. There was a time when this movie would have really turned heads with the allegations of collusion and chicanery. Too bad.

In any case, the acting is first rate as is the writing, of course. The cast is close to a Who's Who of big names willing to put in hard work at SAG minimums.

It's very tight and well done, but I was hoping for it to be a bit more engaging. Art imitates life.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
