David Nusair’s “The Coundelor” Is a Breath of Fresh Air
By Eugenius Antonius, Senior Critic
David Nusair’s “The Counselor” covers a lot of territory in a short amount of time, and does so under the guise of honest to goodness, no-frills critique, and in this regard he appears up to the challenge.
Nusair manages to cram as much as possible into a very small window, and seems to excel at doing so. It’s not often that so little can be said about a film, and yet there is still a concrete criticism to be found through it all. The writing is high caliber and takes you into the off-kilter world of The Counselor without ruining the film’s surprises.
The spoilers are in kept to a minimum, and the fact is, though not much positive or negative is said about the film it will still remain tantalizing to most who read the review. Nusair doesn’t really infect his The Counselor with his personal biases and reports the facts and some opinion about The Counselor. For the extremely sensitive there are two instances of pseudo-spoiler-type shenanigans but after those the spoilers take a permanent leave of absence.
