A Brooklynite turned "back-to-the-land" Vermont socialist who honeymooned in the Soviet Union and has far less executive experience than Sarah Palin vs. a fact-free braying bully boy billionaire real estate and gambling mogul bizarrely backed by evangelicals would be crazy enough. Toss in another New Yorker, a billionaire "daddy knows best" ex-mayor and media mogul who is no class traitor and we get the full banana republic experience.

Concussion fumbles when it delves too much into Dr. Omalu's life. This indictment of the NFL becomes a love story which takes the focus off the football players where the real pathos is. Concussion should have revealed more about the tragic lives these esteemed players led and their needless suffering due to sport.
