Silver City

John Sayles (Matewan, Lone Star) combines the dense, conspiratorial murder mystery of Chinatown with the pointed political humor of an Al Franken routine. The all-star ensemble (including Kris Kristofferson, Chris Cooper, Daryl Hannah, Richard Dreyfuss, Miguel Ferrar, Tim Roth and more) centers around a sincere but dimwitted political candidate (Cooper), whose political ambitions suffer a setback when a dead body shows up at a campaign stop. The film is built like a murder mystery, but gives Sayles plenty of room to skewer political corruption, the electoral system, environmental policies and more. Like a lot of films this year, this long-winded indie is really just preaching to the converted, but liberals will have themselves a laugh or two. 129 minutes
