Hollywoodland – 7/10.

A private investigator looks for answers in the case of George Reeves, the actor who played Superman in the popular US TV series who died in mysterious circumstances. A strangely subdued Adrien Brody never really shows up as the PI, he doesn’t really seem interested. Affleck is superb as tortured soul Reeves though (Reeves famously hated playing Superman) despite not sporting a beard. If you like L.A. Confidential and other modern film noir I would recommend Hollywoodland.
