The Changeling is based on a true story from which the director, Clint Eastwood, has created a truly stunning film. No end to Mr. Eastwood's talent he also did the music for the film. Angelina Jolie's performance alone compels one's attention throughout this disturbing drama, the equal of One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest in many ways. John Malkevich's acting is subtle yet powerful, a completely believable portrayal of an ordinary man on a mission. Colm Feore held his own in the high-voltage ensemble. While The Changeling is not an easy film to watch, on Oscar night you'll be glad that you did. How did the real life cops and the medical staff once upon a time imagine that they were doing the right things in this case? I wonder... where was their empathy and decency so long ago?
