HBO’s ” The Wizard of Lies” brings a player back together and shows the star once at the start of his games. In the 80’s and most of the 90’s, a movie played by Robert De Niro and a movie directed by Barry Levinson were of great importance. However, ’00’ and ’10’ are not gentle here and there for two normal collaborators with a few exceptions.
It is not a brave claim to say that this robust drama is Levinson’s best work in twenty years, but it is even more surprising to understand how long De Niro remains when he chooses to reach the tank. It’s a subtle, fascinating performance.
