Movie / Film Review
Roman J. Israel, Esq. was unsettling in both a good and a bad way and at moments was difficult to watch.  However, Washington is so amazing in general, and incredible in this role specifically, that the uncomfortable feeling is tolerated in order to see how the plot plays out in the end.
