Dark Waters: Film Review

I’m really surprised Dark Waters didn’t get any love this awards season. Its subject matter is something that the Oscars usually love, so it’s a shame this film has flown under the radar because it tells a staggering story.

I’m not gonna lie, I thought The Hustle – a female version of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels – was going to be absolutely rubbish. My expectations were very low and it turned out to be better than I expected. That’s not saying much as it was still only OK.
