On "Flight"

From The Dispatch:
At nearly two and a half hours long, the film tends to drag a bit in spots and never quite justifies its length, but Washington's tremendous performance is compulsively watchable. His portrayal of a man in a literal and metaphorical tailspin is the stuff Oscar nominations are made of, and he is surrounded by a top-notch supporting cast including Bruce Greenwood, Don Cheadle, Melissa Leo and a scene stealing John Goodman as Whitaker's good-natured cocaine dealer. James Badge Dale also makes a strong impression with only one scene as a cancer patient with a love of cigarettes and a unique perspective on life and death.
