"TRUMBO is an unconventional film about an unconventional man. Part documentary, part expertly staged readings, it focuses on the unquiet life and unforgettable words of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo."Los Angeles Times "Peter Askin's stirring documentary TRUMBO gives you reasons to cheer but also to weep. It makes you lament the decline of the kind of language brandished with Shakespearean eloquence by Dalton Trumbo, the blacklisted Hollywood screenwriter, in his witty, impassioned letters excerpted in the movie."New York Times "Trumbo was sent to jail and blacklisted, yet the man captured by Peter Askin's penetrating documentary was such a hard-shelled and imperiously eloquent SOB that he never saw himself as a victim." -- Grade: B+Entertainment Weekly0.09710215
