How does Shelton see “Game of Shadows” as film?Shelton -- a man whose signature successes are based on thoughtful human stories about endearing losers set in the milieu of sports -- chooses to invest himself in a banal, technical anti-drama which, even if done well, will not contain a single sympathetic character.
“It’s not really about Bonds and it’s not really about Clemens,” he said, although how the Clemens situation plays out may enter into it just as Bonds is certain to be a part of it. “It’s more about the uncovering of the details, more like ‘All the President’s Men’, which wasn’t really about [ Richard] Nixon specifically."
Yeah, that should work out well.
