The 15:17 To Paris: Seitz Gets It Right

Matt Zoller Seitz wrote a great final paragraph in his mixed review of Clint Eastwood's "The 15:17 To Paris:
"The movie's greatest virtue, which might be enough to make it a critic-proof hit no matter what, is its poker faced sincerity. This extends to faithfully reproducing a Red State worldview that was also showcased in "American Sniper" and "Sully." A lot of U.S. moviegoers are going to feel seen by this film, and that's a net gain for American cinema, which is supposed to be a populist art form representing the body politic as it is, not merely as the industry wishes it could be. If only someone could've heroically intervened to save this movie."
