Roman J. Israel, Esq. (***1/2) – We can’t have nice things

There’s virtually no shot at this film winning any awards, and perhaps it doesn’t truly deserve any. Washington’s about the only actor alive that can so eloquently display his faults as a virtue. He’s able to color a little outside the lines of his somewhat limited character, but he knows the point of his character is self-analysis that the others will learn from, so he plays it like he’s doomed from the start.
