While the movie itself didn't wow me, I loved the wayward journalist's commitment to putting "the bastards of the world on notice that I do not have their best interests at heart.” The "bastards" in question are scumbags like the character played by Aaron Eckhart who take and exploit people and places to get what they want to satisfy their own greed. This quote alone shows one of the reasons that writing is an important career--giving those a voice who don't have one and calling out the injustices going on in the world.
For me, this made the last 30 minutes of the movie worthwhile, even though everything that preceded was sort of just chaos mostly caused by drinking. Lots and lots of drinking.
