Johnny Cash sings "Man In Black" for the first time

Parallax View & All the President's Men

Here are clips from the 2 movies Michael Cuesta based Messenger on..


Parallax View


Great line from the movie:
Fred Weil: Some stories are just too true to tell.

Jeremy Renner is excellent as Gary Webb - Parallax View meets All the President's Men

Jeremy Renner has the blockbuster franchises (Avengers, Bourne, Mission Impossible...) to fall back on so I give him a ton of credit for taking time, and probably some of his own money too, to bring some real history to the movies. Not only with Kill the Messenger but the Abscam movie too.

On the dvd commentary the director (Michael Cuesta) draws comparisons to All the President's Men and Parallax View. The cast is very good also .. Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rosemarie DeWitt, Robert Patrick ..
